  1. Umar sadiya farouk is a capital liars,she deliberately refused to pay us over 80,000 Npower beneficiaries 3month stipend, March April and May,.

  2. She wickedly and intentionally refused to pay about 80000 beneficiaries including my humble self since March 2020. What beats my imagination most is her ability to lie countlessly even in public. She lacks public trust,sincerity, integrity, honesty and fear of God. She should be sacked immediately!
