Sadiya “My team and I continue to liase with stakeholders to ensure a successful exit for the NPower volunteers”
Her shared message with NPower Batch A and NPower Batch B Beneficiaries.

She thanked the NPower beneficiaries and states that they have been worthy ambassadors of the NPower scheme in their respective Places of Primary Assignments – Primary Healthcare centres, and previously unmanned classrooms”
NPower Batch A of the NPower scheme will receive their last stipends from the Government in the month of August. 
Both batches would proceed into a psychometric assessment examination to test their competence into various opportunities in the private sector.

NPower Volunteers Pleads With The Ministry To Pay June And July Stipends


Veteran NPower beneficiaries pleads with the Minister For Humanitarian Affairs Sadiya Umar Farouq to pay their June and July 2020 Stipends.
"Pay us our June and July stipends and give us permanent employment or reasonable grant" the NPower beneficiaries laments, this is further amplified by a viral statement going round on NPower volunteers social media platforms.
We are the pride of this Nation and we refuse to be treated as second class citizens, they weep as they demand for backlogs of 4 months stipends owed to several NPower volunteers. "We worked for it and we must be paid as well" says NPower Volunteers on their social media platforms.
The Minister of Humanitarian affairs stated a week ago that the NPower volunteers will be paid their stipend this week but nothing has been done since then.
NPower volunteers have been agitating and continues to air their views through peaceful protest since their exit, for Federal Government to provide them with better exit package in form of permanency or grant so that they will not be sent back to the labour market without a sustainable means of livelihood and survival.

Real NPower Beneficiaries Lament Over Doctored NPower Protest


The Minister For Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social development Sadiya Umar Farouq has been accused by the NPower Batch A and NPower Batch B beneficiaries to have hired some thugs who disguised as part of the NPower volunteers to blackmail them and thank the minister and President Buhari for a job well done in exiting the NPower volunteers unceremoniously and without proper exit package as promised earlier.
You can recall that the 'real' NPower volunteers protested in Abuja last week and also took their protest to the National Assembly to complain of neglect and non-payment of their June 2020 stipend and also the planned unceremonious exit by the minister. They took their protest to the Senate who addressed them and told them that something will be done about their plight.
According to the NPower volunteers, in the same vein, when they got to the office of the minister, she failed to attend to them despite being in the office but asked her subordinates to lie to the NPower volunteers that she was not around even when her official car was seen packed in the premises, only to brag later seen packed in the premises, only to brag later that she intentionally ignored them.
This week, a set of people believed to be political thugs, and a kid was seen on the street claiming to be an NPower volunteer, protesting against the action of the ‘real' NPower volunteers and praising the minister and the president for a job well done. It was later confirmed that they must have been rented by the minister.
The real NPower beneficiaries wrote on their social media platforms:
"Grandpa is one of the rented volunteers. A young child was also used as a Npower volunteer."
The Leader of the "Concerned Citizens" sponsored against NPower volunteers has been revealed by Shittu Zakari. The guy in the mask is Kabiru Dallah from Angwatashi, Obi local government area of Nasarawa state. He is not an NPower volunteer. He is a PDP member and supporter of former senator Solomon Adokwe of Nasarawa south senatorial zone. He is known for nothing but troublemaking in the state. He was finally silenced in the state after our able senator Umaru Tanko Almakura defeated his uncle in the 2019 general election. Hungry supporter, with this we are totally convinced that the minister of disaster Sadiya Farouq is up to something."
It was recalled that this present administration promised the NPower volunteers permanent jobs during the 2019 general election after completing their supposed 2 year NPower program. It is now glaring that the promises were only made in order to win the 2019 election.
The Senators and Representatives have already promised to intervene and do the needful concerning the issue.
The NPower scheme is one of the programme under the Social Intervention Programs (SIP), an initiative of the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo but was hijacked from his office by the presidency and given to the new ministry in August 2019.

NPower Batch C Registration Closes First Week of August, Over Eight Million Applications Received



NPower Batch C application will finally come to an end first week of August, according to the NPower official facebook handle.

NPower application started late June, spanned through the month of July, and will officially come to a conclusion first week of August 2020.

More than eight million applications were received and confirmed, the number may rise as registration ends in a week time.

Only 400,000 applicants will make it through to the on-boarding process, a rigid procedure is already in place to screened out non eligible applicants.  


In no distant time, further instructions will be made known as to the next stage of the NPower recruitment exercise.

Applicants are advised to stay tuned to the official page of the NPower programme to get genuine information.

Nigerians have welcomed the launch of the NPower Batch C as it would avail the same opportunity to other young Nigerians to learn a skill set and earn stipends.

Over 5 Million Nigerians Apply For NPower As Deadline Is Extended



The Federal Government has extended the ongoing NPower Batch C online application by two weeks, an official has said, adding that over five million people have so far applied.

This was disclosed in a statement signed by the humanitarian ministry’s Deputy Director, information, Rhoda Iliya, on Sunday.

The ministry explained that the decision aims to capture more intending applicants who have had difficulties accessing the online registration portal.

It added that since the opening of the new batch C online portal, last month, the ministry has received a record number of over 5 million applications so far.

“The Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development state that the extension has become necessary to provide an equitable and level playing field to all eligible applicants which have seen a record number of over 5 million applications.”

According to the ministry, the extension is to afford more opportunity for online registration, taking into cognizance the difficulties some people might encounter in gaining access to the registration portal.

The NPower programme, inaugurated by President Muhammadu Buhari in 2016 with thousands of direct beneficiaries spread across the key industries targeted by the programme – Agriculture, Health, Education, and Tax had last month announced the disengagement of both NPower batch A and NPower Batch B volunteers allowing for opportunities of new NPower batch C into the NPower scheme.

The first batch (A), which commenced with over 200,000 young Nigerians in 2016, were to have exited the scheme in December 2018.

Perhaps because of the general elections in February 2019, the federal government extended the NPower programme to May 2019. This was followed by an indefinite extension, which ended June 30.

The second batch (B) kicked off in August 2018, with about 300,000 NPower beneficiaries who ought to exit the programme in July 2020.

However, there had been reports that some members of the National Assembly fraudulently received slots of about 50,000 out of the 400,000 NPower beneficiaries willing to partake in the NPower scheme – from the minister, Sadiya Farouq.

According to the report published on Sahara reporters, the forms were allegedly being distributed by the senate president, Ahmad Lawan, and three other Nigerian politicians, for their wards and supporters.

But, in separate statements reported by PREMIUM TIMES, both Mr Lawan’s spokesperson, Ola Awoniyi, and Senate spokesperson, Ajibola Bashir, denied the allegations and described them as false and a fairy tale.

Lecturers,Staff Of Federal, State MDAs Among NPower Volunteers – Investigation

Some lecturers of tertiary institutions and workers in the federal and state ministries, departments and agencies were among the NPower beneficiaries in the federal government’s batches A and B NPower scheme,expected to end this month,Vanguard has learnt.

The NPower program intended to assist young  jobless school leavers get stipends to earn a living, was taken advantage of by some people already working in good establishments due to the country’s porous employment data system.
Those who took advantage of this situation swindled the government by benefiting in the programme either for two or three years depending on the batch they were engaged in.


The development was even as government implemented the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System,IPPIS,in a bid to checkmate some corrupt practices associated with recruitment and payment of workers in the country.
However, investigation by Vanguard revealed that while some NPower beneficiaries enrolled deliberately,given the porous employment data system in the country, some were employed after they enrolled in the scheme.
Since they got jobs after their enrollment in the scheme,they continued as NPower beneficiaries, a source told Vanguard.

NPower: Beneficiaries Forum Disowns Protesters, Pledges Support For Sadiya Farouq’s Launch Of NPower Batch C


No fewer than 300,000 NPower beneficiaries of the NPower scheme across the country have disassociated themselves from an alleged protest over the winding down of the Batch A and B streams.
The group, under the aegis of NPower Nationwide Beneficiary’s Forum, said the persons were “sponsored” by political detractors to dent the progress recorded under the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Hajiya Sadiya Farouq.
In a statement signed by its Secretary-General, Ambassador Godswill Ibekwe, on Saturday, the NPower beneficiaries disclosed that these “selfish” persons were never at any point its members, expressing gratitude to the president for the “opportunity to benefit immensely from the scheme”.
Ambassador Ibekwe added that genuine beneficiaries have welcomed the launch of the NPower Batch C as it would avail the same opportunity to other young Nigerians to learn a skill as well as earn stipends.
While declaring maximum support for President Muhammadu Buhari and Hajiya Farouq, the group vowed that in due course its members and prospective Batch C beneficiaries would show their appreciation for the privilege.
The group, however, pleaded that the NPower scheme be expanded to accommodate more Nigerian youths.

NPower: We Did Not Sign Pact On Employment, FG Tells Protesting NPower Volunteers


"We are not a lending agency", Humanitarian Affairs Ministry says

The Federal Government, Friday,reminded aggrieved NPower enrollees protesting the end of their engagements in the NPower scheme that there was no agreement for their permanent employment, adding that there was no agreement that they would be given grant upon expiration of their engagements.

The government’s position came following protests staged Thursday by aggrieved NPower beneficiaries who berated government for ending the batches A and B without making provisions for permanent jobs for them.

Besides, the aggrieved NPower beneficiaries while demanding permanent jobs, gave the federal government the option of paying each disengaged NPower volunteer the sum of N600,000 as a grant.

The Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, reacting to the development, in a statement by the Deputy Director of Press, Rhoda Iliya, noted that the NPower Volunteers forgot the terms and conditions of the NPower scheme.

According to the statement, there was nowhere in the form where the government had assured that the NPower enrollees would be provided permanent jobs or given the grant upon completion of their engagements.

The ministry told them that it was not a lending agency even as it disclosed that it was
“In contact with other Ministries, Departments and Agencies  (MDAs) such as CBN and NALDA, to see if the exited beneficiaries can key into their empowerment programmes.”

The statement read in full: “The Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development observed on Thursday 23rd of July 2020,  a rally by NPower beneficiaries at the National Assembly which later proceeded to the Federal Secretariat Complex.

NPower: Ministry Working With CBN & NALDA

The Minister for Humanitarian Affairs Sadiya Umar Farouk said she is working with CBN to see if loans can be provided to the outgoing NPower beneficiaries and also to see if NPower volunteers can be engaged in National Agricultural Land Development Authority 
(NALDA).

Federal Government Says They Cannot Afford To Pay N300 Billion Grant For Over 500,000 NPower (Batch A & B) Volunteers OF The NPower Scheme.


The Director (Press) of the Federal Ministry for Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Mrs Rhoda Iliya, conveyed the Ministry’s position through a statement in reaction to the protest staged by some of the NPower Volunteers at the National Assembly complex, Abuja.

Mrs Rhoda Iliya stated “They requested the Federal Government to employ all the 500,000 NPower beneficiaries as well as pay them a grant of N600,000 each.

“The Ministry wishes to state that this demand was not part of the agreement of engagement they signed with the Federal Government, which clearly stipulated that they will be exited after two years.

“Furthermore, the Federal Government cannot afford the N300 billion they were asking for as grant."

“It is noteworthy to state that the Federal Government of Nigeria has expended hundreds of billions to NPower volunteers during the last four years and is liaising with the office of the Accountant General of the Federation, which is responsible for the payment of their stipends, to ensure that any outstanding legitimate claim is rectified.

“The Federal Government cannot afford to continue to pay the exited NPower volunteers' stipends indefinitely, more so that the process of engagement of new NPower beneficiaries (Batch C) has already begun.

“For the records, the Ministry wishes to state that it had always processed, approved and remitted necessary information for payments to the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation (OAGF) whose role it is to credit the various accounts of the NPower beneficiaries using the GIFMIS platform as directed by Federal Government of Nigeria.

“However, after receiving a complaint of non-payment by some NPower beneficiaries who did same through the ministry, the OAGF (GIFMIS) officially wrote informing the ministry that out of a total of 516,600 NPower volunteers' data sent to OAGF for migration in April 2020, only a total of 502,580 data have successfully migrated to the GIFMIS platform, while a total of 14,020 NPower beneficiaries were returned because the NPower beneficiaries’ account details already exist in other Ministries Departments & Agencies (MDA), which is against the established rule of the NPower Scheme.
"The Accountant General of The Federation is working tirelessly to resolve the issue" she stated.

Details Of Senate Meeting With NPower Beneficiaries As Hope Rekindles.

The Senate has once again on Thursday being 23rd July, 2020 rekindled the hopes of Npower Beneficiaries (Batches A & B ) that non of them will be thrown out of the scheme without a comprehensive enhancement package in place. While addressing NPower beneficiaries, the Senate President who was represented by Senator Onor Sandy Ojang ( Representing Cross River Central ) said, he empathised with the NPower beneficiaries for the precarious conditions such as delay in payment of stipends, backlog of payments and the news of disengagement amid covid-19 pandemic that the NPower volunteers were subjected to. Senator Onor appreciated the NPower beneficiaries for the civilised way they conducted themselves while pressing home their demand. Senator Onor Sandy Ogang Speaking on behalf of Lawmakers He added, “we have read all the placards you are carrying, arising from your prayers therefore, I can assure you on behalf of Nigerian Lawmakers that all your demands especially the issue of “permanency” would be met with immediate effect. Youths are the backbone of any Nation and Nigeria under President Muhammadu Buhari cannot do otherwise but ensure that Nigerian youths are given the desire respect and dignity they deserve”. ” I am a professor and I know what it takes to be a graduate; hence, let me say that I personally feel embarrassed and ashamed why youths earning a stipend of N30,000 working in Primary Schools, serving as an Extension Workers, Health Officers and ICT officers will be disengaged from their means of livelihood without alternative jobs or promoted to “enhancement stage” as earlier promised by the government . As Lawmakers, we will follow due process to make sure that you are given a permanent job”, Senator Onor Added. Earlier, the National President of NPower beneficiaries, Comrade Pelumi Aliyu said, “it is unfortunate that enemies of President Muhammadu Buhari who are against his laudable initiative of NPower are using Media to tell lies and promote propaganda against the ever committed, grateful and faithful NPower beneficiaries which he stressed now led to staggered payments and backlogs of many months”. ” He noted that, “during 2019 election, stakeholders of NPower to include Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, Mr Afolabi, Minister Audu Ogbeh among others have said that, a vote for President Muhammadu Buhari, guaranteed permanency. He however lamented that since Hajiya Sadiya Umar Farouq took over the NPower scheme, it has been tension in the air as her coming has not elevated NPower volunteers in any way rather championing the campaign of disengagement. While thanking the Senate representative for giving them listening ears, he also saluted his colleagues who have traveled from across the 36 states of the Federation to be at NASS headquarters Abuja. 

Sadia Umar Farouq Explains Reason Behind Non-Payment of NPower Beneficiaries

The Federal Government, Thursday, said it did not pay 14,020 NPower volunteers in the just ended batches of NPower programme because the affected NPower volunteers’ account details were found to be already existing in other ministries, departments, and agencies. The Federal Government noted that the actions of the NPower enrollees were against the established rule of the NPower scheme, the Ministry regretted that the development affected some genuine and eligible NPower beneficiaries.

But said it was investigating into such cases with a view to solving the issues soonest.

The Ministry for Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development, in a statement through its Deputy Director, Press, Rhoda Iliya, responded following complaints lodged by some NPower beneficiaries who claimed they did not receive their payments accrued to 4 months before the end of the just concluded batches. “The Honourable Minister, Sadiya Umar Farouq, regrets any inconvenience this might have caused genuine and eligible NPower beneficiaries just as the Office of the Accountant General, saddled with the responsibility of the filtering out those denied is working assiduously to fix the situation,” the statement said. It read in full: “The attention of the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development has been drawn to the complaint of non-payment of some NPower volunteers during the last exercise, with some alleging non-payment for upward of four months. “For the records, the Ministry wishes to state that it had always processed, approved and remit necessary information for payments to the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation, (OAGF), whose responsibility it is to credit the various accounts of the NPower beneficiaries using the Government Integrated Financial and Management Information System,(GIFMIS)platform as directed by the Federal Government of Nigeria.



“However, after receiving a complaint of non-payment by some NPower beneficiaries the OAGF (GIFMIS) officially wrote informing the ministry that out of a total of 516,600 NPower volunteers data sent to OAGF for migration in April 2020, only a total of 502,580 data have successfully migrated to the GIFMIS platform, while a total of 14,020 NPower beneficiaries were returned because the NPower beneficiaries’ account details already exist in other MDAs, which is against the established rule of the NPower scheme. This is verifiable. “The Honourable Minister,Sadiya Umar Farouq, regrets any inconvenience this might have caused genuine and eligible NPower beneficiaries just as the OAGF saddled with the responsibility of the filtering out those denied is working assiduously to remedy the situation.”
