N-Power reacts to grievances by Batch A, B beneficiaries
Follow us on: Google News
The federal government has reacted to grievances by Batch A and Batch B beneficiaries of the N-Power Programme.
Some beneficiaries under the umbrella of the 36 States and FCT N-Power Representatives Forum, requested that President Muhammadu Buhari administration announce the transition plan for batches A and B who will be leaving the programme by June and July respectively.
The beneficiaries notified Mrs. Sadiya Farouq, the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster management, not to deceive over 500,000 Nigerian youths who struggled hard to guarantee the current government returned to power in 2019 by ditching out a mere promise of entrepreneurial schemes to them.
They threatened to embark on a nationwide protest if by the end of seven days the Minister fails to provide them with answers to their demands.
Replying to the agitations, the N-Power scheme in a tweet on its official Twitter handle ensured that all questions about their entitlements in the scheme will be handled.
The post read: “To our Batch A and Batch B beneficiaries, we have seen your questions on the exit plan, backlogs, and devices.”
“In the following days, these issues will be addressed individually. Please stay tuned to our social media pages for updates.”SOURCE: Scannews24.com
