5 Months Backlog: 8,900 Volunteers To Get N150, 000 Each Next Week

The Federal Government through the Humanitarian Minister, Umar Sadiya Farouq, made a remarkable achievement by successfully verifying the bank statements of 8,900 persons with the last three months

It is worthy to mention that, over 14,200 disengaged volunteers were not paid their five months stipends as a result of GIFMIS, flagging off volunteers in error

The Senior Special Assistance and Media aid to the Humanitarian Minister, Mrs. Nkem, broke the news this today, the 7th of April 2021

Other owed volunteers not captured in the 8900 volunteers are to be patients as verification of bank details and other credentials submitted are ongoing, the ministry assured

5,300 volunteers will not be among the first batch of payment, but after the completion of the bank statement and other credentials, the fate of over 5300 owed volunteers would be ascertained

For now, no one knows if the leftover of the 14,200 would be paid any time soon

Disengaged volunteers have been begging the Federal Government to pay all her outstanding debt of stipends owed to volunteers since last year, not until today, a statement was made in that regard

Sadiya Umar has said, only legitimate claims will be paid after verification of bank details and credentials,

Words of Sadiya Umar regarding the 5 months backlog payment sometimes last year

“From the consolidated list of beneficiaries we received from the OAGF in September, the 14,200 beneficiaries with arrears of stipend were flagged for receiving a monthly payment from other MDAs, particularly from the NYSC”

“It is possible that the 14,200 beneficiaries used their NYSC allowance bank accounts for N-Power and GIFMIS payment platform picked them for double payment”

“The 14,200 affected beneficiaries will present their NYSC certificates for final verification after which we will present an updated list to OAGF to pay off their 5 months arrears”

“All legitimate claims and those on verified list will be paid before the end of the year”
