Nigerian govt begins payment to N-Power enrollees



The Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development has said the 500,000 N-Power enrollees across the country would begin getting their monthly entitlements from Tuesday (today).

The ministry said in a statement that the development followed the signing of the payment mandate by the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development, Sadiya Umar-Farouq.

According to the ministry, the minister signed the payment for the enrollees’ entitlement after all due processes were concluded in line with the rules guiding Federal Government’s public financial expenditures.

The statement said Farouq urged those in charge of the exercise to follow necessary rules and regulations on public expenditure.

She said: “Those responsible for processing the payment must do it in conformity with the necessary rules and regulations to ensure accountability.
