By Nudoiba Ojen

Following recovery of funds held by a consultant for several months, the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation has said it will soon pay beneficiaries who are being owed monthly allowances for eight months.

Many beneficiaries did not receive payment for their monthly allowances while monies were been held up by the consultant managing the enrollment and payment system whose contract had long expired.

The National Program Manager of N-Power, Mr Akindele, who made the disclosure, said, “The good news is that the funds were recovered yesterday and you will be getting your money soon. Payment for N-Power Beneficiaries Batch C who have been owed for eight months will begin soon.

“This and more are irregularities that the Honorable Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Dr Betta Edu, is committed to resolving to create a good foundation upon which the Renewed Hope N-POWER will expand to reach 5 million young Nigerians,” he said.

The National Program Manager said that Edu, had been working round the clock to arrest irregularities within the Program and other social investment programmes.

He said, “These irregularities have made the common man lose faith in the ability of the government to provide social safety cover for its population, but Dr Betta Edu is taking all necessary steps to resolve these issues and deliver the Renewed Hope mandate of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to Nigerians.

Akindele called on young Nigerians to be patient as the restructuring is in their best interest and it will lead to the expansion of the program to accommodate millions of Young people.

“President Tinubu is committed to eradicating Poverty and he will deliver on it,” he said.
