Adesiyan said no member of the N-Power Batch C has been paid his/her allowance since January 2023, making it 8 months at the end of August.

He added that the explanation they got was that the Presidency had not approved or disbursed funds for their allowances into the account of the National Social Investment Management System (NASIMS).

“For the past eight (8) months, NPOWER has failed to disburse stipends to its beneficiaries. The months of October, November and December of 2022 were paid to some of the beneficiaries while the majority still remain unpaid.

“No beneficiary was paid a dime in the whole of 2023 starting from January, February, March, April, May, June and July of 2023 this has left beneficiaries in a state of financial uncertainty and despair.

“The reason provided for this delay is the claims that funds for the said months have not been approved or disbursed into NASIMS account by the presidency, isn’t this laughable?
