"We have not visited President Muhammadu Buhari" -36 State N-power Beneficiaries declare


The Beneficiaries of the N-power Program have decried the use of rented crowd and media to further deepen the precarious situation they have been thrown into even without payment of their June stipends and backlogs.

Reacting to the news that emerged across the social media about some group of youths who were said to have visited President Mohammadu Buhari under the umbrella of N-power National Forum, the beneficiaries pointed out that N-power Beneficiaries across the 36 States of the Federation have never embarked on an official engagement without the uniform N-power T-shirts and Caps owned by each of the Beneficiaries.

Taking reference to the pictures taken during the 2019 General Election Campaign, the visit of N-power Handlers to various States, recent protest in Abuja, Oyo and other States, the N-power Beneficiaries noted that being graduates of various institutions in Nigeria, they are organised and would not partake in any public outing without the uniform N-power T-Shirts and Caps.
The Beneficiaries who lamented the use of National Dailies and rented crowd to further aggravate the graduate youth N-power Beneficiaries by the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development noted that upon a sudden disengagement from the N-power Program by the Ministry amidst COVID-19 pandemic, their June Stipends and backlogs have not been cleared while a promised exit plan by the Ministry has remained a shadow weeks after their disengagement.

The N-power Beneficiaries have on the 23rd of July, taken to the streets of Abuja, National Assembly Complex and Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development to protest a sudden and punitive disengagement from the N-power Program amidst COVID-19 pandemic, a time many countries are battling with economic downtimes, rise of unemployment, declined employment opportunities,  and parents unable to eat 2 meals a day.

The Beneficiaries who are mostly in their 30's and many married with kids lamented the economic hardship they have been subjected to since the transfer of the N-power Program to the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Developement ranging from delayed payment of Stipends to disengagement without an exit plan as promised by the Federal Government.

The volunteers had in their recent protests demanded a permanent employment from the Federal Government as law abiding Citizens who have dedicated at least 2 years of their youthfulness in service to the Government in the Education, Health and Agricultural Sectors with remarkable impacts across the Federation or a grant of N600,000 each as exit package to enable them pursue their individual entrepreneurial endeavours in addition to clearing their backlogs, June Stipends, among others.
