All N-Power beneficiaries in the country would get bank alerts for their outstanding monthly entitlement from Tuesday, the Federal Government has said.
The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar Farouq, made this known in a statement on Tuesday signed by her media aide, Salisu Na’inna Dambatta.
According to the minister, the payment was meant for the 500,000 N-Power enrollees throughout the country.
Farouq said the ministry has signed the payment mandate after all due processes were concluded in line with the rules guiding the federal government’s public financial expenditure.
“Those responsible for processing the payment must do it in conformity with the necessary rules and regulations to ensure accountability.
“Now that the rules were followed strictly and the process concluded, I was given the assurance that they will start receiving credit alerts from their banks today, Tuesday, April 14, 2020,” the Minister said.
The Minister restated the resolve of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari to overhaul the National Social Investment Programmes (NSIPs), including the N-Power component, to ensure transparency, effectiveness, accountability and the judicious application of public resources in running the programmes.
“The Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development will along with relevant partners drive the overhauling process to ensure that the expected benefits of the NSIPs are realized in full,” she noted.
