FG Begins Payment of 5 Months Backlog to Disengaged Npower Batches A & B Beneficiaries


The Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development through the National Social Investment Management System has begun payment of 5 months stipends arrears owed some Batches and & B who were disengaged in June and July 2020 respectively.

The Ministry in a notice on Tuesday announced the payment of five months backlog, saying the payment started yesterday and is done gradually.

Confirming the payment, one of the recipient posted screenshot of alert he received. The screenshot shows credit of N150,000 from Remita, Federal government's centralised payment platform.

Recall some beneficiaries were not able to get their stipends for about 5 months for one reason or the other. 

The Ministry in a statement on September, 2021, explained that “Following the payment system challenges faced by the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development which has been overcome, the Ministry has commenced the final payment of the arrears on the few outstanding allowances of Batches A and B NPower volunteers. The accounts of these 14,021 volunteers were flagged in March 2020 by the Federal Government payment system, the Government Integrated Financial Management Information System (GIFMIS), for various reasons including but not limited to: 

1) beneficiaries having multiple accounts, and 

2) beneficiaries account receiving other payments such as salaries and allowances from multiple Federal Government Ministries, Department and Agencies (MDAs) on permanent employment or for participating in other schemes. These acts violate the regulations guiding the N-Power volunteer programme and could amount to gross misconduct and corruption.”

Finally the payment has commenced.
