Exit of Batch A very Must possible

Sadiya reveals that, 200,000 beneficiaries were supposed to spend 24 months on the programme, but Batch A beneficiaries have spent over 40 months thereby denying other Nigerians an opportunity to access the programme and gain skills for entrepreneurship and employment,
She always maintains her stands on exit of batch A beneficiaries into what we cannot tell for now
There had been controversies between Ms Farouq and President Muhammadu Buhari’s Special Adviser on Social Investment, Maryam Uwais, about the exit package for the Batch A volunteers as each traded blame on who was responsible for the delay in disengaging the beneficiaries.
“The minister had blamed the National Social Investment Office (NSIO), under Mrs Uwais for having no viable plan for the exit of the beneficiaries.”
“In reaction, Mrs Uwais said her administrators had made ‘exit plans’ which had not been implemented before the office was moved under the leadership of Ms Farouq. She also said she had briefed Mrs Farouq on those plans”.
Npower will be streamlined
In Sadiya’s words “We are working hard to streamline the programme for greater efficiency and to provide opportunities for more Nigerian youths. Details will be provided as soon as May stipend has been paid.
We may not know the true meaning of streamlining as per the programme. But what we do know is that, many changes will take effect

Payment of May Stipends will be made in June

Volunteers, both A and B need not to protest or resort to names calling before being paid, the tragedy caused by the action of the volunteers reached higher authorities, and sadiya had no choice but to pay
Already her office is being questioned with alleged maladministration, misappropriation and corruption, making EFCC ready to pick her for questioning. A sad reality no public figure will welcome

All beneficiaries should take to mrs sadiya’s twitter page handle and sign tirelessly of the much promised IPAD
