Sadiya Umar Farouq, minister of humanitarian affairs, disaster management and social development, says the stipends of N-Power beneficiaries for the month of April will be paid early next week.

She made the promise at briefing of the presidential task force (PTF) on COVID-19 in Abuja on Friday.

Last week, the ministry had appealed to the volunteers to be patient, as “payments are currently being processed”.

However, while responding to a question on why the payment had not been made for April, the minister gave the assurance that it would be made early next week.

She said;

“I would like to say it is in the final stage of payments. By early next week, they will get their payments, Insha Allah,” 

The N-power programme was established by the federal government to provide jobs and skill empowerment initiatives for youths.

The N-Power programme, which comes with job training, education and a monthly stipend of N30,000, is only open to persons aged between 18 and 35.
