N-Power: FG Suspends Programme, Probes Fund Disbursement

The Federal Government has suspended the N-Power programme indefinitely.

This was disclosed by the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Betta Edu while speaking during an interview on TVC News on Saturday.

According to her, the suspension was a result of some irregularities observed within the scheme.

Edu noted that an investigation will be launched into how funds were expended since the beginning of the programme.

Revealing reasons behind the suspension and what will follow, the minister noted, “We must go back to look into N-Power and understand what the problems are so we will basically suspend the programme for now until we are done with proper investigation into the utilisation of funds into the N-Power programme.

“We want to know how many persons are basically on the program right now, how many persons are owed, the amount they are owed. We are totally restructuring the N-Power and expanding it.

“There are lots going on. We met people who were supposed to have exited the programme last year and they are still claiming that they are still teaching.
