An update on the payment of stipends to beneficiaries of N-Power has been provided by the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Farouq.
At the interactive forum with state focal persons for the Social Investment Programmes held in Abuja on Thursday, Farouq appealed to beneficiaries of Batch B to be patient, adding that their payment is still being processed and would be implemented soon.
According to her, the government is also working out plans to integrate beneficiaries of the batches A and B exited in June and July respectively.
She said:” I wish to reiterate that I have given approval for the payment of stipends for the exited beneficiaries of batches A and B up to the month of June 2020 including that of the independent monitors.
“The final payment of stipend for Batch B is almost ready for transmission to the office of the Accountant General of the Federation for final checks and payment.”
The minister appealed to Batch B beneficiaries omitted for payment to exercise more patience.
“I, therefore, appeal for patience and understanding from beneficiaries omitted for payment in previous months and those in batch B who are to get their final payment,” she added.
