NASIMS News On Pending Payment Today 3rd December 2023



Latest N-Power Updates: Non-Graduate Programme Insights and Resolution on Pending Payments as of Dec 11, 2023

In a recent development, the Federal Government, through the National Social Investment Management System (NASIMS), has announced significant changes to the renowned N-Power scheme. The eagerly anticipated restructuring is set to be launched in December 2023, bringing about a revamped system aimed at enhancing efficiency and addressing existing discrepancies.

Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Betta Edu, provided insights into the government’s commitment to overhauling the N-Power scheme. She assured the public that owed beneficiaries, despite their disengagement, would receive their arrears. Edu emphasized the need to thoroughly clean up the system before implementing the new structure.

“We met discrepancies, and we intend to clean it up before we go back to paying those who are owed, and then bringing out a completely new structure. We would capture people, put them on the scheme properly, verify them, and then go ahead to pay them,” Minister Edu explained.

She further conveyed that the administration, under the leadership of Bola Tinubu, has given a directive to expedite the process of “cleaning up” N-Power. The minister urged Nigerians and young people to exercise patience, stating that the comprehensive cleanup operation is expected to take some time.

“For N-Power, we would truly advocate to Nigerians and to young people that they give us up until January next year (2024). From what we have seen on the ground, this will take a while to clean up, and then, we can now come out with the new structure for November, December. Payments will effectively begin in January,” Edu affirmed.

The reactions from N-Power beneficiaries varied, with some expressing optimism about the settlement of outstanding stipends. Ayinde Sanusi, a beneficiary, remarked, “If all the outstanding will be cleared, nothing concerns us with the backlog.”

However, not all beneficiaries shared the same sentiment. Onyekachukwu Chukwuka, a Batch C beneficiary, voiced frustration, saying, “They should just tell us that they have suspended N-Power for life.” Others, like Ibrahim Mohammed, expressed weariness, stating, “We are tired of waiting. We want to be paid as soon as possible abeg (sic).”

In response to concerns, the official N-Power scheme Twitter account assured beneficiaries that Minister Edu and Akindele Egbuwalo, the N-Power national programme manager, are diligently working to resolve all payment issues.

Amidst the discussions on pending payments, the government disclosed plans to rejig the N-Power scheme entirely. Minister Edu, in a statement released by media aide Rasheed Zubair, outlined the government’s intention to expand the social investment programme, accommodating more individuals and ensuring prompt payment of beneficiaries’ stipends.

As the anticipation builds, beneficiaries are advised to stay informed through official channels for updates on the restructuring process and the subsequent rollout of payments in January 2024.
