N-Power Recipients Decry Unfair Disengagement; Says FG Owes N2.1b Allowance

Beneficiaries of FG Social Investment Programme, N-power in the 36 States plus the FCT, have termed their sudden disengagement from the scheme without proper transition into the Civil Service as unfair.

The National President of the N-Power Beneficiaries Forum, Kabiru Pelemi said in Ilorin the Kwara State capital that the development has impacted negatively on the nation’s economy, as most of the severed volunteers are in their productive stage.

The forum President upheld that it was rather unfair to disengage them into the Labor market as this make mockery and rendered the original motive useless.

Mubarak Bello, the chairman of the forum stated that the Federal Government is owing about 14,000 beneficiaries of the scheme their five months stipend allowance across the 36 states of the federation and the FCT.

The beneficiaries seized the moment to appeal to the federal government to urgently implement a transitional process in order to ensure the success of the scheme.
