Many recipients of the Batch C Stream 1 Npower Program are yet to receive their November stipend, according to the National Social Investment Management System (NASIMS).
In a Saturday update, NASIMS identified Network Congestion as the main hindrance to recipients’ bank accounts being credited.
NASIMS statement read:
“as we have stated beforehand, all failed payments will be sorted out and payment made to the affected beneficiaries.”
“Kindly note that the massive November payment failure was as a result of network congestion associated with bulk payment,” NASIMS added.
The Npower Management stated that it is committed to resolving the payment failure difficulties, and that the November Payment will be reintroduced to all unpaid beneficiaries as soon as possible.
NASIMS indicated that notwithstanding the significant payment failure concerns, all Batch C Npower beneficiaries who have received their previous stipends in their various bank accounts could expect to get their November stipend.
Although Npower beneficiaries have expressed dissatisfaction with the continued delay in clearing outstanding stipends, the National Social Investment Management System (NASIMS) has apologized for the delay and stated that it will leave no stone unturned to ensure that all outstanding stipends are paid to the beneficiaries.
While many beneficiaries of the Batch C Npower Program are still waiting for their November payments, the month of December 2021 has yet to be started for all beneficiaries, and the month of January 2022 has joined the long queue of unpaid outstanding stipends.
