5 months Backlog: 5 Reasons Npower Volunteers Should Be Worried

5 months Backlog: 5 Reasons Npower Volunteers Should Be Worried: Over 14,200 Npower volunteers may not be paid as promised earlier by the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Umar Sadiya Umar through the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation (OAGF)

The problem of more than 14,200 Exited Npower volunteers started when the GIFMIS rejected some volunteers of the Npower programme for reasons of being on another government payroll, a claim yet to be defined 

 As of the end of March 2020, a handful of Npower volunteers failed to be credited their stipends when others were being paid. 

Alarm and online protest were made, but to no avail, the matter lingers till July, and the amount accumulated to five (5) months unpaid stipends

The of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development addressed the matter and concluded on proper verification and screening of the affected volunteers through Focal Point Officers in all the 36 States and FCT

The Minister admitted to being less involved in stipends payment as the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation (OAGF) is now responsible for stipends payment 

Affected volunteers were promised to be paid before the year 2020 runs to an end, but, certainly, volunteers were not be paid as December is ending in days 

No Information From OAGF & Humanitarian Ministry

There has been no information from both the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, headed by Umar Sadiya Umar and the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation (OAGF) regarding the 5 months owed stipends

No one is coming out to officially update affected volunteers of the month’s backlogs, volunteers flaunt social media to air their view, but all their cries fall on deaf hears, as the matter is not giving the attention it deserves  

Words not coming from authorities concerned with the issues at hand give affected reasons to worry, as their plight are not well attended to

Verification and Bank Statement Submitted 

As ordered by the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development, Umar Sadiya Umar through the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation (OAGF), affected volunteers have already verified their details and submit their bank statement, yet their stipends are not paid them

All other requirements needed to process their five months owed stipends have been done by all affected volunteers but no action is taken to pay them, no confirmation of their documents received 

Federal Allocation for previous Months Shared 

The Federal Government has received her share of the Federal Allocation for October, yet the promised to pay volunteers has not been fulfilled

The office of the Accountant General of the Federation (OAGF) confirmed receiving October Allocation, but no instruction is given to GIFMIS to pay all the 14,200 volunteers of their hard-earned stipends- a move that dashed the hope of volunteers 

Volunteers of Some Government Programmes Have Been Paid for Months

‎FMARD PACE-FARMERS’ ENUMERATORS have been paid for months, the Agric Minister, Alhaji Muhammad Sabo Nano promised to pay enumerators on 23rd December 2020, 

Not only where they paid, but about 30,000 enumerators were also given permanent appointment, the 5 months backlogs to Npower volunteers is yet to see the light of the day
