- FG has sacked 30 N-Power beneficiaries in Adamawa state
- Mary Yuwadi, the state focal person said the beneficiaries were sacked for absconding from their places of work
- Yuwadi emphasised that their dismissal would serve as a deterrent for other members who are not serious in their places of work
No fewer than thirty beneficiaries of the N-Power programme in Adamawa state have been sacked by the federal government.
Legit.ng reports that the focal person of the federal government’s Social Investment Programmes (SIP), Mary Yuwadi, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria ( NAN) on Wednesday, January 15, in Yola, the capital of the state.
Yuwadi noted that the thirty teachers were dismissed for absconding duties at their various places of primary assignment.
”Under the federal government national social investment programme, a total of 14,100 youths in the state were registered in various segments of the programmes. The federal government has also stopped its monthly payment.
"This will serve as a deterrent for other members who are not serious in their places of work. We discovered that some of those who registered under the programme in Adamawa, reside in Abuja and Lagos and collect the stipend being paid. We also found out that some of those who registered, were civil servants working in various local government areas across the state,” she said.
Speaking on the impact of the programme especially N-Power Teach, she said: "The programme has significantly improved the standard of primary and junior secondary schools education in the state. There is inadequate supervision, mobility and accommodation problems.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that some volunteers of the federal government youth empowerment programme in Osun state who were either put on hold or exited have appealed for their reinstatement into the scheme.
It was also reported that the federal government explained the reasons for the delay in payment of monthly stipend to the N-power beneficiaries.
