For some N-power beneficiaries, Sadiya Umar Farouq, the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, is the one President Muhammadu Buhari shouldered with the responsibility of sorting the payment of their monthly stipends.
But surprisingly to them, that is not the case, as the National Social Investment Management System (NASIM), under which the empowerment scheme was floated, released a statement that quashed such belief.
In the statement seen by Unmask NG, NASIM revealed that the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) makes the payment of beneficiaries’ stipends, and not the minister as widely claimed.
According to NASIM, this belief is why the payments of stipends are delayed sometimes.
Read NASIM’s statement on who pays N-power beneficiaries below
Your payment does not come from the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar Farouq, or anybody as alleged by most beneficiaries, hence the delay.
For the avoidance of doubt, your payment comes directly from the CBN upon conclusion of crucial processes.
However, we are aware of the plight and inconveniences encountered by beneficiaries in the course of service discharge and we sincerely apologise for the delay.
Payment will commence soon! Thank you.
