FG sacks over 2,525 N-Power beneficiaries

More than 2,500 N-Power beneficiaries have been sacked by the Federal Government, as confirmed in a statement by the National Social Investment Programme (NSIP).

The statement released by Justice Bibiye, communications manager of NSIP, revealed that 18,674 N-Power beneficiaries voluntarily resigned after securing permanent employments, while 2,525 others were sacked for absenteeism at their primary place of assignment (PPA).

“Instances have compelled the need for continued action against those who are seen to be undermining the smooth implementation of a well-thought-out federal government social intervention initiative,” he said in a statement.

“N-Power is not a charity programme and, therefore, everyone captured under the scheme is expected to justify his/her engagement by demonstrating diligence, hard work and commitment to duty at their PPAs.

“Acts of dereliction of duty, indolence, absenteeism and indiscipline on the part of volunteers shall continue to be dealt with decisively and in line with the rules of engagement.

“To ensure seamless execution of the programme in order to achieve the set goals, the NSIO has increased the number of monitoring partners, with fresh discussions having commenced in earnest to seek enhanced supervision and the strengthening of monitoring, for effective and efficient service delivery of all components of the NSIPs.”

The media was also urged to help the National Social Investment Programme (NSIP), in reporting erring volunteers and absenteeism.

He said: “Indeed, even because Nigeria covers such a vast terrain, the public and the media would only be supporting the efforts of the Administration to reduce unemployment, by reporting the relatively few indolent, erring volunteers who were lucky to have been selected to serve under such a programme.

The process has begun and can only get better if everyone embraces the programme and considers it a collective responsibility to ensure that the millions of deserving Nigerians that are the target audience of the NSIPs are impacted positively, with reduced unemployment indices in Nigeria.”
