“Buhari have financed the programme in a timely manner and that is why we have been able to pay stipends to the ex-agitators.
“We are probably the first government agency every month, that’s able to pay stipends or remuneration.
“So I can assure you that except for failures of payment system, which is nobody’s fault, it’s just based on technology. By the 20th of every month, stipends are paid."
