The fG reveals why 14000 NPower beneficiaries have not received stipends even though they are now being paid out
9jatalkative News reports that the ministry of humanitarian affairs, disaster management and social development said some of of the Npower beneficiaries were not paid their stipends because the payment platform already recognised their accounts
The Deputy Director of information at the ministry, Rhoda Iliya, a statement on Thursday, revealed that 14,020 beneficiaries of NPower have existing accounts on the payroll of other agencies, adding that the accountant-general of the federation is working to resolve the outstanding payment of genuine and eligible Npower beneficiaries.
Addressing the 14,020 Npower Beneficiaries who have not been paid, the minister said:
“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 N-Power beneficiaries during the last exercise, with some, alleging non-payment for upward of four months,” she said.
“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 responsibility it is to credit the various accounts of the beneficiaries, using the GIFMIS platform as directed by FGN.
“However, after receiving complaint of non-payment by some beneficiaries who did same through the ministry, the OAGF (GIFMIS) officially wrote informing the ministry that out of a total of Five Hundred and Sixteen Thousand, Six Hundred (516,600) N-Power beneficiaries data sent to OAGF for migration in April, 2020, only a total of Five Hundred and Two Thousand, Five Hundred and Eighty (502,580) data have successfully migrated to the GIFMIS platform, while a total of Fourteen Thousand and Twenty (14,020) beneficiaries were returned because the beneficiaries’ account details already exist in other MDAs, which is against the established rule of the N-Power programme.
This is verifiable.
“The Honourable Minister, Sadiya Umar Farouq, regrets any inconvenience this might have caused genuine and eligible beneficiaries just as the OAGF saddled with the responsibility of filtering out those denied is working assiduously to remedy the situation.”
