The programme officially commenced on 4th October, 2021, as the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development quells the request by the new Beneficiaries of the Npower programme that September Stipend should be paid.
Due to the official declaration by the Ministry that the Official commencement of the Batch C Stream 1 Npower Programme is 4th October, 2021, the beneficiaries would expectedly wait for their First Stipend by the end of October, 2021.
However, Payment of Npower Stipend does spill over the following Month due to processing cycle of the stipends after it’s been approved by the Ministry.
The Npower Beneficiaries stipend is obviously paid using the Government Integrated Financial Management Information System server (GIFMIS Server) controlled by the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation.
he Ministry towards the end of every month, would prepare names of Npower beneficiaries who are due to be paid at the end of a particular month. That would include a documented report on the amount to be paid to the eligible beneficiaries for the completed month.
After then, the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation would commence the Payment after all the approved beneficiaries’ details have been successfully fed into the payment Server.
In the real essence, the processing cycle does cross the first week of the following month. Hence, the payment date for the Batch C Stream 1 N-power Programme would be from 1st November, 2021 to 10th November, 2021.
Provided all things being equall, all the Beneficiaries would recieve their payments on the same day, but most a times technical hitches would result in some beneficiaries not being paid on the same day or some payments outrightly hanging.
But with time, all hitches are resolved and all the Beneficiaries paid at the end.
