The Minister of the Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Farouq, has said N-Power volunteers will start receiving their stipends from next week.
N-Power is one of the Social Investment Programmes of the Federal Government, which provides a platform where most Nigerians can access skills acquisition and development while rendering services.
The programme is for young Nigerian graduates between the ages of 18 and 35 and they are paid the sum of N30,000 monthly allowance.
It was gathered that some of the beneficiaries have not received their allowance since March while none of the 500,000 volunteers have been paid for the month of April.
Mrs Farouq announced the readiness to pay for April at the daily national briefing of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 on Friday.
“It is in the final stage of payment and by early next week, they will get their payment, Insha Allah,” She said while responding to questions.
