Sadiya Umar Farouq, Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development has released an important update for Npower batch A-B beneficiaries who are yet to receive some months stipends.
The total number of beneficiaries from Npower Batch A and Npower Batch B is 500,000.
Out of the 500,000 combined beneficiaries from Batch A and B, only 14,200 have 5 months outstanding stipend arrears.
Reason for the delay in Npower Batch A & B Backlog Payment
The delay in the payment of backlog stipends is due to platform migration from NIBSS to GIFMIS by the Office of Accountant General of the Federation in March 2020.
From the consolidated list of beneficiaries Npower received from the OAGF in September, the 14,200 beneficiaries with arrears of stipend were flagged for receiving a monthly payment from other MDAs, particularly from the NYSC. It is possible that the 14,200 beneficiaries used their NYSC allowance bank accounts for N-Power and GIFMIS payment platform picked them for double payment.
How to ensure you are paid your Npower stipend backlog
A State verification process has commenced with State N-Power Focal Officers. If you are among the 14,200 affected beneficiaries, you are expected to present your NYSC certificates for final verification after which Npower will present an updated list to OAGF to pay off the 5 months arrears.
