N-power Outstanding Payment News November 2023


Npower Batch C beneficiaries have been asking to know the reason it is taking so long to pay their 9-month backlog of stipends after the FG had claimed that the fund meant for the payment has been recovered.

In today's Latest Npower News, we will be discussing N-Power Outstanding Payment - What To Do While Waiting for your 9-month backlog payment.

N-Power Beneficiaries Cry Out Over Unpaid Stipends

N-Power beneficiaries, particularly those in Batch “C”, have cried out to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu over the non-payment of their allowances for the past eight months.

Gbadebo Adesiyan, the national publicity secretary of the group, said the non-payment of stipends has caused immense hardship to thousands of unemployed graduates captured under the N-Power scheme.

Adesiyan said the beneficiaries had been left in a state of financial uncertainty and despair, as they had not received any payments from January to August 2023.

He appealed to President Tinubu to intervene and ensure that the beneficiaries are paid their allowances promptly.

Updates on NPower Backlog Payments

The National Social Investment Management System (NASIMS) has announced that it will begin paying outstanding stipends to former N-Power beneficiaries in November 2023. Payments will be made to eligible beneficiaries’ bank accounts after the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation completes its investigation.

The Federal Government has shown a renewed commitment to resolve pending payment issues, particularly a significant backlog that has been a topic of concern for the past nine months.

Announcement on Overdue NPower Stipends

During a significant meeting held in Abuja, Akindele Egbuwalo, the National Programme Manager, delivered some much-awaited news. The government has managed to secure funds that were previously tied up with payment service providers.

The announcement outlined that starting November 2023, the disbursement of these funds would commence, chipping away at the nine-month backlog in a phased manner to ensure beneficiaries receive their stipends without hiccups.

For the numerous beneficiaries who have shown patience, this development is a sigh of relief. The hold-up, attributed to a suspension for an audit and program restructuring, is now set to be corrected with the government’s assurance of swift payment processing.

N-Power Investigation Ongoing, Beneficiaries Assured of Payment

The National Social Investment Management System (NASIMS) has assured all eligible N-Power beneficiaries that they will be paid, despite the ongoing investigation into the program.

In a post on its official Facebook page on November 3, 2023, NASIMS stated that the N-Power C1 program has been successfully completed and that only those with failed payment issues will be considered for payment. The post also emphasized the importance of the ongoing investigation.

In another post, NASIMS reiterated that all eligible beneficiaries will be paid upon conclusion of the investigation. The post urged beneficiaries to be patient.

The NASIMS assurance comes as a relief to many N-Power beneficiaries who have been waiting for months to receive their stipends. The investigation into the program was launched in June 2023 following allegations of corruption and mismanagement.

NPower Batch C3 or D Application is Fake

In recent weeks, there have been rumors circulating online that the 2023 N-Power program application is open. However, Legit.ng conducted a fact check and found that there is no record of such an application on relevant Nigerian government websites.

Furthermore, the National Social Investment Management System (NASIMS) has issued a statement warning the public against falling for scammers who are claiming to be recruiting for the N-Power program.

NASIMS stated that the N-Power program is currently not recruiting and that any information to the contrary is false. The agency also advised the public to disregard any calls or messages from people claiming to be N-Power recruiters.

NASIMS said that the N-Power program will be open for recruitment when the time is right, and that the agency will announce this on its official website and social media pages.

The public is therefore advised to be wary of scammers and to only apply for the N-Power program through the official NASIMS website and social media pages.

In addition to the above, here are some tips to avoid falling victim to N-Power recruitment scams:

“Be wary of any website or social media page that claims to be recruiting for the N-Power program but is not affiliated with NASIMS.

Do not provide any personal or financial information to anyone claiming to be an recruiter unless you are sure that they are legitimate.

Be suspicious of any website or social media page that asks you to pay a fee to apply for the program. The N-Power program is completely free to apply for.”

If you are unsure whether an NPower recruitment advertisement is legitimate, you can contact NASIMS directly for confirmation.
