It is quite obvious that the Month of April payment of stipends to volunteers is overdue volunteers are yet to receive their April stipends and in some cases March and April as well.It is now a traditional affair that volunteers never know when to get paid at the end of every month. Meaning belated payment has temporarily been institutionalised in the Npower program.
Recall that the minister has insisted on a late payment style after emphasizing on a rigorous protocol that culminates to payments from the central bank of Nigeria. A delay volunteers will say is absolutely unnecessary and ignoring moral standards.
Some volunteers lately accused her of being licentious in her dealings, that she has totally ignored the objective of this program and arbitrarily instigated orders that ffrustratebeneficiaries and independent monitors nationwide.
Deuteronomy 24:14 -15, says “do not take advantage of a hired worker who is poor and needy, pay them their wages each day before sunset, because they are poor and are counting on it.otherwise they may cry to the Lord against you, and you will be guilty of sin”.
Though beneficiaries of the program are grateful to God for this great opportunity given to them, they have severally complained of job dissatisfaction and neglect by the honourable minister of humanitarian affairs and disaster management especially on payment issues.
Nevertheless, volunteers are appealing that they should be given listening ears concerning their monthly stipend and backlogs.T hey absolutely need it because they rely on it for survival.
Let me stI’ll reiterate that April stipend is on arrival. Hopefully, F G will do the needful.
Be calm and patient, you will surely receive alerts.
