The beneficiaries under the N-Power Programme who were omitted from the payment of their stipends have been directed by the PMB-led government to report to their state for verification and revalidation.
The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Farouq, declared this on Tuesday.
Umar-Farouq in her declaration noted that issues dealing with stipends of some beneficiaries in batch A and B are almost being solved.
The Minister also stated that investigations carried out by the Office of the Accountant-General of the Federation following the omission of some N-Power beneficiaries from payment of stipends revealed that some were receiving other salaries from other Federal Government agencies.
She disclosed that opportunity has been given to the affected beneficiaries to verify and re-validate their eligibility so that qualified beneficiaries could be paid for their participation in the N-Power Programme.
She enacted the deadline for verification would be October 13, 2020, and clarifies that any beneficiary who fails to attend the verification exercise would forfeit their stipends.
