The Federal Government said it can not afford a grant of N300bn being demanded by N-Power beneficiaries.
The Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development revealed this on Friday.
The ministry said it observed that there was a rally at the National Assembly on Thursday by some N-Power beneficiaries.
It said the rally later proceeded to the Federal Secretariat Complex in Abuja.
The protesters claimed to be representatives of the Federal Government’s N-Power beneficiaries about to exist the programme.
According to the ministry’s Deputy Director, Press, Rhoda Iliya, the protesters requested the Federal Government to employ all the 500,000 N-Power beneficiaries as well as pay them a grant of N600,000 each.
The ministry wishes to state that this demand not part of the agreement of engagement they signed with the Federal Government, which clearly stipulated that they will be exited after two years.
Furthermore, the government cannot afford the N300bn they were asking for as grant.
The ministry is currently liaising with the Office of the Accountant-General of the Federation, the agency responsible for the payment of N-Power beneficiaries’ stipends, to ensure that any outstanding legitimate claim is settled.
