NEED FOR NATIONAL ASSEMBLY TO SUMMON HON. SADIYA UMAR FAROUK, THE MINISTER OF HUMANITARIAN AFFAIRS, DISASTER MANAGEMENT AND SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT IN CHARGE OF NPOWER
After several letters to the ministry of humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management And Social Development I chose to write this article to call attention of NASS to summon honourable SADIYA UMAR FAROUK for questioning and answer for not handling N-Power program in right way.
The Honorable Minister, in her several interviews and her social media handles categorically stated that N-Power volunteers will be given exit package, especially b4 the end of the year 2021.
The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs has been using different tactics and media propaganda all this while without fulfilling the exit package through her purported NEXIT PORTAL .
Up till now, a reasonable numbers from Batch A and B are yet to be paid their backlog till date.
And what amazed me is that she didn’t use batch A and B volunteers to learn her lesson to strategize for BATCH C.
Batch C stream 1 NPower volunteers have been posted to their Places of Primary Assignment (PPA) without considering their locations.
Some of them have to spend more than four hundred naira for transport fare a day before getting to their PPA.
These Batch C stream 1 N-Power volunteers have only been paid September stipend and yet to receive October, November and December stipend.
Does she want them to use miracle to go to their PPA without receiving their stipend ?
Some of these volunteers quit where they were managing their life to joined NPower in order to make life easy for them most especially in this economy situation we found ourselves in Nigeria.
Most of NPower batch C stream 1 are presently confused either to resume to Npower job or go back to where they were working before.
The primary aim and objectives of the N-Power program ( Batch A and B ) was not achieved as 95% of the beneficiaries are now back to the street and jobless and the same mistake is about to happen to batch C again.
An official statement on issue surrounding the exit package for batch A and B and payment of batch C should be made.
As graduates, matured and experienced citizens of Nigeria, we are tired of the way she handles N-Power program and it’s obvious that she doesn’t have regards for Nigeria youths.
We hope and believe that the needful will be done before the 2nd week of the January.
Comrade Kabiru Aliyu Pelemi
National N-Power President.
