NPOWER NEWS – The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar Farouq, says N-power beneficiaries need not panic as the government is considering plans for their exit.
Farouq said this in Abuja yesterday when she visited the corporate headquarters of Media Trust Limited, publishers of Daily Trust titles.
“I don’t know the fears of the beneficiaries, but I know that government had this Npower programme and it’s supposed to be a two- year programme.
Those in 2016 were supposed to have exited in 2018, but because there was no plan in place, the tenure was extended. So, they know from the outset that it’s not a programme that will be there for life. “For us as a ministry, we’re looking at all options for the planned exit.
