According to the Federal Government, N-Power recipients will start receiving their eight-month backlog of payments in November.
The administration of President Bola Tinubu has also named the programme the Renewed Hope Job Creation Programme (RHJCP).
On Monday, October 16, Akindele Egbuwalo, the National Programme Manager of N-Power, stated as much and added that it will be paid for in installments.
In a statement, Jamaluddeen Kabir, national communication manager at the National Social Investment Programme Agency (NSIPA), stated that Egbuwalo disclosed this information when meeting with a few N-Power recipients.
He said that the Federal Ministry of Poverty Alleviation and Humanitarian Affairs has obtained some money back from the current payment service providers.
“The good news is that the funds have been recovered and you will be receiving your money shortly,” Akindele clarified. The eight-month overdue payment for N-Power Beneficiaries Batch C will shortly start.
“The average person no longer has faith in the government’s ability to provide social safety cover for its population as a result of these irregularities, but Dr. Betta Edu is taking all necessary steps to address these problems and give Nigerians the Renewed Hope Mandate of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.”
“Many anomalies that had previously prevented the Programme from being implemented smoothly are now being rectified.
“It would be recalled that on assumption of duty it was noted that many beneficiaries did not receive payment for their monthly allowances while monies were being held up by the consultant managing the enrollment and payment system whose contract had long expired.”
