NASIMS stated that the main purpose for the temporary suspension of the programme was to address all matters directly affecting beneficiaries.
NASIMS wrote on its official Facebook page:
"Payment of outstanding Npower 9months (sic) stipends will be initiated upon conclusion of the ongoing restructuring and repositioning."
"This is the payment update from the ministry tonight, 28th November, 2023."
As a result of the temporary suspension of the programme for thorough restructuring and forensic audit, funds had been recovered from the existing payment service providers.
