Presidency reveals reason for sacking 5,781 N-Power beneficiaries




The Federal Government of Nigeria has revealed the reason for sacking over 5,781 N-power beneficiaries from their duties across the federation.

Senior Special Assistant (SSA) to the President Buhari on Job Creation and Youth Employment, Afolabi Imoukheude said that a large number of the N-power beneficiaries were sacked for truancy.

Imoukheude who revealed this on Saturday while addressing some beneficiaries in Abuja said that complaints received from the places of primary assignment of the affected beneficiaries over truancy and lackadaisical attitude were getting overwhelming.

He said, “When we get report of people who play truancy we usually place you on payment hold. In N-power you learn, work and earn.

“If you do not do the right thing and you are paid, you are stealing the money. Note that the funds are not mine but that of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“We have been receiving enormous complaints that a lot of you no longer go to work. The head teacher in your Primary Place of Assignment (PPA) is your Buhari and has the responsibility to teach, monitor and educate you.

“I have some good news for most of you, 5,781 of you have been forcefully exited out of the programme because of disciplinary issues. Perhaps you will begin to believe that states have authority over you. We also receive report of those who absconded and you know the terms and conditions attached to be an N-power beneficiary.

“There has been so many insinuations around ghost workers in N-power. There is no ghost workers in N-power, there cannot even be because having conducted a physical verification and confirming those who come into the programme for them not to exist.

“What happens to those who do not receive alert? It is because of validation and we try to contact you via phone number, email address to go regularise yourself with your bank and update your details,” he added.
