The official account of the Job Creation and Empowerment Initiative of the Social Investment Programme of the Nigerian Government has warned N-Power beneficiaries against submitting their ‘bank statement’ to their Head of Place of Primary Assignment (PPA).
Daily focus Nigeria reports that the N-Power initiative was introduced in 2016 as part of President Muhammadu Buhari’s National Social Investment Programme (NSIP), aimed at curbing the incessant increase of unemployment and poverty in the country.
The programme volunteers are paid N30,000 (approximately 83 US Dollars) monthly as stipends and given tablet computers to aid further learning. It has five components, which are N-Teach, N-Tax, N-Health, N-Agro, and N-Build.
According to data from the National Social Investment Office (NSIO), as of August 2018, an estimated 500,000 graduates volunteer in N-Teach, N-Tax, N-Health, and N-Agro which are designed for graduates.
Out of the SIP components, the N-Teach subcomponent is the most popular, due to a large number of youth deployed to teach in public schools.
One Aliyu Ibrahim had asked on Twitter on Wednesday thus: “Pls @npower_ng is there anything like submission of “bank statement” to the Head of place of primary assignment by the beneficiaries? Some guys were disturbed by their Head.”
And the official handle of N-Power answered: “No sir, we strongly advise against this.”
