N-Power Gives Reasons For Deduction Of Stipends
Following the incessant complains of reduction of stipends by N-Power beneficiaries, the Federal Government has given reasons as to why the reductions occur.
N-Power which is a Federal Government empowerment scheme is a programme that allows graduates to work on a 2-year contract basis.
NIGERIA NEWS gathered that reductions have been occuring based on the fact that, “Beneficiaries who selected the Tecno and Speedstar devices incurred additional charges.”
“A few beneficiaries will have noticed a deduction in their stipends.”
“You will recall that the Federal Government entered into a 20-month Assest Finance Agreement with the Bank of Industry for the N-Power devices.”
”Consequently, the additional costs will be deducted from their stipends between the months of March and July, 2019.”
