N-Power: More than 5781 have been kicked out of the programme

The president Muhammed Buhari led government has said that they have dismissed more than 5781 beneficiaries.
This was disclosed on Saturday in Abuja by the Senior Special Assistant (SSA) to the President Buhari on Job Creation and Youth Employment, Afolabi Imoukheude, who addressed the beneficiaries.
This dismissal came as a result of the beneficiaries not showing up in thier place of primary assignments and also due to complaints received from the work area of such beneficiaries.
Afolabi in his statement said that “When we get report of people who play truancy we usually place you on payment hold. In N-power you learn, work and earn.
“If you do not do the right thing and you are paid, you are stealing the money. Note that the funds are not mine but that of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“We have been receiving enormous complaints that a lot of you no longer go to work. The head teacher in your Primary Place of Assignment (PPA) is your Buhari and have the responsibility to teach, monitor and educate you.
“I have some good news for most of you, 5,781 of you have been forcefully exited out of the programme because of disciplinary issues. Perhaps you will begin to believe that states have authority over you. We also receive report of those who absconded and you know the terms and conditions attached to be an N-power beneficiary.
“There has been so many insinuations around ghost workers in N-power. There is no ghost workers in N-power, there cannot even be because having conducted a physical verification and confirming those who come into the programme for them not to exist.
“What happens to those who do not receive alert? It is because of validation and we try to contact you via phone number, email address to go regularise yourself with your bank and update your details.”
