N-Power Batch A and B Protest Update

The agitation of the disengaged Batch A and B beneficiaries of the N-power program was taken to a new height yesterday as the protesting  beneficiaries were graced by the presence of the Senate President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Recall>>>Breaking: 500,000 N-power Beneficiaries to embark on a rescheduled protest

The distressed beneficiaries who have taken to the National Assembly complex in Abuja amidst tight security and adherence to the stipulated guidelines for the prevention of the spread of COVID-19 Pandemic by the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC), thrilled the higher authorities of the Government with placards bearing inscriptions of dismay, anguish, expectations and plea.

Heart breaking and piteous inscriptions displayed by the graduate volunteers who were suddenly disengaged from the N-power program amidst the downturn of the COVID-19 Pandemic, narrowed opportunities, unclear exit plan, non-uniform Stipend Payments, non-payment of June Stipend, denied device for Batch B, amongst others includes:

“Nigerian Graduates are the future of Nigeria, treat them better….”
“Federal Government, please do not send N-power Beneficiaries back to the street…”
“We have families who depend on the N30,000 monthly stipends. How do we survive now?”
"Thank you President Mohammedu Buhari for the N-power Program, we deserve more."
“We need substantial exit package or Permanent employment”
And many more….

The Senate President, Ahmed Lawal, who was unsettled by the touching inscription born by the endangered youths, asked the protesting beneficiaries to revisit the National Assembly next week Thursday for Negotiation.
