Ministry says NEXIT Promise was forgotten, apologises for delay

The Ministry of Humanitaries Afairs, Disaster Management and Social Development has apologised for the delay in fulfilling the NEXIT Plan promised to the exited Batch A and B N-power Beneficiaries, disclosing that the "Promise was forgotten".

The Statement followed a reaction by an exited N-power Beneficiary who queried via the N-power verified Social Handle why the Promises made to the Batch A and B N-power Beneficiaries were forgotten.

The Ministry while responding to a similar query, Sunday, stated that preparations for the fulfilment of the Exit package, tagged NEXIT, planned for the exited N-Power Beneficiaries were "in top gear".

It has been a year since the Promise was made, the N-power Beneficiaries reacted.

As a collaboration between the Humanitarian Affairs Ministry and the Central Bank of Nigeria, many thought earlier before now, the NEXIT Plan would have been concluded as CBN intensifies efforts to mitigate the effect of COVID-19 Pandemic on the Nigerian Populace.  

Resuscitating the issue of Backlogs owed to some of the exited Beneficiaries, a commenter, Comr Ibrahim Chiri Mmr reminded the Ministry a previous statement it made: "we have initiated a State Verification Process with N-power Focal Officers. The 14,200 affected beneficiaries will present their Certificates for final verification after which we will present an updated list to OAGF to pay off their arrears", N-power however declined to respond to the remark.

The Minister for Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar Farouk had in an event captured in Daily Trust stated that her ministry has concluded with the 500,000 Batch A and B N-power beneficiaries, noting that all outstanding Payments have been cleared while focus is on the enrolment of the Batch C N-power Beneficiaries.
