Next Plan is to Exit 2016 Batch A into Permanent jobs - Sadiya Umar Farouk

The Minister for Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar Farouk, while responding to a media interview with NTA 2 stated that the Ministry is making plans to exit the 2016 N-power beneficiaries into Permanent jobs after the COVID-19 pandemic.

She noted that she is aware that some volunteers have not been paid their March Stipends and should not make them panic as payment is still on going.

The Minister urged the N-power beneficiaries to expect delay in payments as the processes  of payment are cumbersome.
The process is cumbersome and therefore there would be delay in payments. We know that's not a norm but that's the challenge we face now.
Sadiya explained that the major cause of the delay in payment is verification processes that must be concluded before payments are made. She noted that these procedures must be followed diligently to ensure no mistakes in payments.

The Minister concluded by noting that the current situation is the COVID-19 pandemic, then next is exit and permanency of 2016 Batch A N-power Voulunteers.

Sadiya Umar Farouk had in an interview declared her Ministry's plan to recruit more 400,000 N-power beneficiaries in 2020. She added that it would only happen after the exit of the first Batch of the N-power program who have exhausted their period of stay in the program.
