N-power: Sadiya Farouk, a woeful and disastrous Failure-WIKIPEDIA: She is the youngest minister in the Buhari led cabinet, appointed in July 2019 by President Muhammadu Buhari to oversee the newly created Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development and the entire National Social Investment Programme (NSIP).

By late 2019, President Muhammadu Buhari saw the need to create a new ministry to cater for the ever increasing challenges faced by the National Social Investment Programme (NSIP), unexpectedly, Sadiya Umar Farouk was transferred to be the Head of the newly formed Ministry, where she has done woefully and disastrously.

The past few months have exposed the incompetency and Managerial mishap of the minister, not only has she failed to deliver but lack ideas on how to run Social Investment programme like that of -Npower, which is the largest in Africa, and one the few success stories of Buhari’s Government.

Her nonchalant attitudes to the plight of Npower volunteers had gained the ground all over; volunteers have taken to her twitter page in protest hurling and throwing tantrums and ill-mannered words on the minister. see https://myeduproject.com.ng/npower-see-the-rep-and-senator-in-favor-of-permanency-bill

Since they brought in Umar Sadiya Farouq to pilot the activities of the National Social Investment Programme, things became even worst and deals became shady, Volunteers claimed

In this perilous covid-19 pandemic,  Volunteers were left to surfer more even while their stipend is due, the total lockdown experienced in some states  come without warnings and Hajiya Umar Sadiya Farouq abandoned volunteers sheepishly 


Npower volunteers had to wait until towards the middle or end of the next month before receiving their stipends. A sad situation, which might blackmail buhari’s integrity towards creating and sustaining jobs and the entire APC manifestoes.

Wikipedia Described Her as Incompetence and Ineptitude

According to WIKIPEDIA,” her total incompetence and ineptitude in the Npower programme can be proven in several ways. See https://myeduproject.com.ng/n-power-recruitment-400000-volunteers-to-be-recruited-minister-video

Her failures include;

  • Non payments of volunteers stipends as at when due,
  • Failed communication to volunteers and embezzlement of public funds.
  • As at 15th of April 2020, Sadiya was yet to pay the beneficiaries’ stipends of the month of March, 2020 when the world is witnessing a full blown Pandemic of the Corona Virus outbreak”- An outrage accountable leaders and governments would have queried.

“In December 2019, Farouk was queried by the office of the president for exercising powers beyond her official briefs by employing more aides than officially approved and delaying the monthly stipend of Npower Volunteers, a social intervention program of the federal government”-Wikipedia


Born in November 5, 1974, Sadiya has served with the National Assembly, under the Senate Committee on Aviation and worked with the Senate Committee on Appropriation.

She was one time operations Manager at Pinnacle Travels and Tours Ltd, before joining the National Assembly Service Commission as an Administrative Officer II. See https://myeduproject.com.ng/npower-project-permanency-send-direct-message-to-your-senator-rep

“Farouk is seen to be one of the closest ministers in the current cabinet and many refer to her as a “supper minister”. Her relationship with President Buhari dates back to Buhari’s days as the leader and presidential candidate of the defunct Congress for Progressives Change, CPC when Farouk was the national treasurer of CPC (2011-2013) and later national treasurer of the All Progressives Congress”-Wikipedia
