Npower Promises Swift Payment for Beneficiaries as Long-Awaited Debts Recovered.
In a significant development for Npower beneficiaries, the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation has successfully recovered funds that had been held by consultants for several months. The announcement comes as a ray of hope for beneficiaries who have been awaiting their payments for eight months.
Mr. Akindele, the National Program Manager of Npower, shared this promising news following a meeting with representatives of Npower beneficiaries. He revealed that the long-overdue funds were successfully retrieved, and beneficiaries can expect to receive their payments in the near future.
The recovery of these funds is seen as a vital step in rectifying irregularities within the program and other social investment initiatives. The Honourable Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Dr. Betta Edu, has been tirelessly working to address these issues and regain the trust of the public in the government’s ability to provide social safety nets for the population.
Mr. Akindele expressed optimism that these efforts would lead to a renewed sense of hope and a stronger foundation for Npower’s expansion to benefit even more young Nigerians. Despite the challenges and irregularities faced in the past, he encouraged young Nigerians to be patient, assuring them that the ongoing restructuring is in their best interest and will ultimately enable the program to reach millions of young people.
The commitment to eradicating poverty and delivering on this mission, as championed by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, remains unwavering. The recovery of funds and the resolve to address irregularities are significant steps towards fulfilling this promise. Npower beneficiaries can now look forward to receiving their long-awaited payments, marking a positive turn of events in their journey towards economic empowerment
