The Federal Government has said that it is ready to commence payment of backlogs to Npower beneficiaries who are on the programme.

 

This was made known by the Npower National Programme Manager Dr. Akindele Egbuwalo.

 

Egbuwalo mentioned this during a meeting with some Npower Beneficaries at his office in Abuja, adding that the main purpose for the temporary suspension of the programme was to address all matters directly affecting beneficiaries with keen focus on the issues of delayed payments of stipends.

 

He added that, as a result of the temporary suspension of the programme for thorough restructuring and forensic audit, funds have been recovered from the existing payment service providers and plans have been put in place by the programme to commence disbursement of the 9 months outstanding stipends to beneficiaries from November, 2023. Payments will be carried out in installment, he noted.

 

While assuring all beneficiaries of complete transparency and accountability, Egbuwalo stated that in line with the new agenda of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the Npower programme will be continued.
