The Social Investment Programme of the Nigerian Government, N-Power has stated that it would still pay the 2017 Volunteers their December 2018 stipend.
“Dear 2016 Beneficiaries, Relax! Your stipends will be paid,” N-Power said in a statement Monday night.
N-Power was apparently reacting to complaints from the 2016 Beneficiaries that their December stipend had not been paid.
They alleged that they had been booted out of the Programme as against earlier assurances from the Federal Government to the contrary.
“You are still on the programme,” N-Power reassured the 2016 Beneficiaries.
Recall that N-Power recently started the payment of December stipend to its 2017 Volunteers amid kudos and knocks.
The Scheme had earlier allayed fears of phasing out the first batch of the Programme and announced an enhancement programme.
