- Some volunteers of N-Power in Osun state have appealed to FG to reabsorb them into the scheme
- The volunteers said they were unjustly exited from N-Power some months ago
- According to the report, the affected volunteers noted that they were removed from the scheme despite their commitment
Some volunteers of the federal government youth empowerment programme, N-Power, in Osun state who were either put on hold or exited have appealed for their reinstatement into the scheme.
Legit.ng's regional reported in Osun state, Ibrahim Akinola, reports that the affected volunteers said they were unjustly removed from the scheme without any cogent reason.
According to the report, they have used all the means to appeal to the government to bring them back on board but to no avail, adding that they were yet to receive any payment of their stipends' backlogs.
In letters sighted by Legit.ng, the embattled volunteers under the auspices of the Osun state forcefully and illegally put on hold and exited N-Power volunteers, appealed to the three senators representing the state at the Senate to come to their aid.
The letters which were signed by one comrade Abimbola on behalf of the volunteer were addressed to the senator representing Osun East senatorial district, Senator Francis Fadahunsi, his Osun West counterpart, Senator Adeyemi Oriolowo and Senator Ajibola Bashiru from Osun Central senatorial district.
In the letters, they sought help and timely intervention of the senators, charging them to present their case at the floor of the red chamber during the next plenary
They said that they were put on hold and exited based on frivolous excuses, adding that they further queried the yardstick the federal government used to remove them from the scheme.
The volunteer, however, expressed gratefulness to Taiwo Oluga, a member of House of Representatives from Irewole/Isokan/Ayedaade federal constituency, over the presentation of their case at the green chamber couple of weeks ago.
"We heaved a sigh of relieve when honourable Taiwo Oluga presented our case at the green chamber some weeks ago. We are equally happy that something is being seemingly done about it," the volunteers said.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that some beneficiaries of N-Power in the state registered their grievances over the delay in the payment of their monthly stipends.
