Dear Batch C2 N-Power Beneficiaries.
Regarding the payment of your stipends for the months of October, November and December 2022, please note that it is due to unavoidable and unforseen challenges, including technical processes and the end of fiscal year mopping up of funds that have resulted in the delay.
However, I am pleased to inform you that significant progress has been made in addressing these issues, and funds will be released within the week.
Your plight, particularly in these trying times matters greatly and is well understood.
We therefore urge you to continue serving our dear nation in your places of primary assignment, and in the case of non-graduates, be receiving your training, with calm understanding while we deploy all efforts to resolve this delay.
Thank you for your usual commitment and cooperation.
Continue to stay NPowered, please.
This came after NPower C2 Beneficiaries sent a letter for a nationwide protest.
N-power Beneficiaries Set to Protest Non-payment of Four-month Stipend
Beneficiaries of the N-power Batch C stream II program have announced plans to hold a peaceful nationwide protest over the non-payment of their stipends for four months. The protest, scheduled for February 23, 2022, is expected to hold in the 36 state capitals and Abuja.
In a statement released by the organizers, the Federal Government under the leadership of Sadiya Umar Faruq, Honorable Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, has been urged to address the issue and pay the beneficiaries their overdue stipends.
The protesters have stressed that the demonstration will be peaceful and that they will adhere to the rules and regulations of the protest, which include refraining from violence, not torching any property, and not blocking roads. The protest will be held at the government house of each state and at the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development in Abuja.
Only N-power Batch C stream II beneficiaries are allowed to participate, and no objects will be allowed, except for paper.
The beneficiaries have expressed hope that the protest will draw attention to their plight and lead to a resolution of the issue. We will continue to monitor this story and keep our readers informed of any developments.
