N-power Permanency Protest: How Some Media Houses Misunderstood the Protest

Thursday’s massive protest saw Hundreds of volunteers from the 36 states and the FCT, pursuing a common cause without proper organization with the Media

Volunteers stormed the City of Abuja in demand of Permanent Appointment, and the immediate release of Outstanding Stipends of over 81,000 volunteers

The Protest was poorly organized, and the Media took a wrong perception the long-planned protest

 While N-power volunteers were demanding Permanent Appointment from the Federal Government, most National Dailies Mistakenly tagged their headline as “Exit Package, Exit Loan, and June’s Stipend”

Some reputable Media Houses, whose reports would have gone a long way disseminating the real intention of the protest, were out of page of reality

Perhaps, the protest was poorly organized and lack leadership, who are to inform the media of her intention even before the protest

Placards, Posters of different calibers could be responsible for the mishap


Sahara Reporters: The most Investigative Media House in Nigeria tagged the Protest as: “N-Power Beneficiaries Protest in Abuja Over Unpaid Stipends, Demand Removal Of Humanitarian Affairs Minister”

 Wrong, N-power volunteers never Protested over unpaid Stipends and demand removal Of Humanitarian Affairs Minister as her primary objective

Sahara Reporter Appeared Confused, thus mixing up ideas not accustomed with

“The protesters besieged the National Assembly in large numbers chanting anti-government songs.


The volunteers are agitating for permanent employment or payment of the sum of N600,000 to each of them before disengagement.

They also demanded the removal of the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management, Sadiya Umar Farouk, for frustrating the programme”- Sahara Reporter
