House of Reps Call FG to Resume Payment of N-power Stipends


The House of Representatives has called on the Federal Government to resume the payment of N-Power and other Social Investment Programs to alleviate the suffering of vulnerable Nigerians.


The suspension of the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation and the sacking of the National Coordinator of the program have further exacerbated the hardship faced by beneficiaries, potentially leading to social unrest.


The House emphasized the need for stability, development, and equitable wealth distribution among citizens.


The House also criticized the planned steering committee Board overseen by the Minister of Finance, as the program was an act of Parliament that requires legislative amendment before it could be supervised by another body.


The House urged the Federal Government to expedite action to complete the ongoing investigation of the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation and put on hold the planned establishment of the Steering Committee Board to oversee the program.
