Reps to probe ‘possible corruption’ in N-Power

The House of Representatives, on Tuesday, unveiled plans to probe the allegation bordering on corruption in the implementation of the N-Power programme of the Federal Government across the country.

The resolution was passed sequel to the adoption of a motion on the “Need to investigate the arbitrariness and possible corruption in the N-Power Programme of the Federal Government”, sponsored by Hon Oluga Taiwo. In her lead debate, Hon Oluga expressed displeasure over the plight of some beneficiaries of the N-Power programme, especially in the teaching profession being excluded from subsequent benefits. She observed that the National Social Investment Programme (NSIP) which was established in 2015, was in fulfilment of the administration’s campaign promises to Nigerians through the implementation of the N-Teach, N-Agro, N-Tech, N-Build and N-Creativity Programmes.

While calling for the House intervention, Hon Oluga stated that the beneficiaries who have their stipends withheld are supposed to be those with queries on truant behaviour, but it has become worrisome, especially in the South Western States where credible teachers have their stipends withheld without any queries or stipulated offence.

She urged the House to investigate the issue with the view to set the records straight if the programme is becoming discriminatory or some people are trying to sabotage the good efforts of the Federal Government aimed at helping out Nigerians, and maybe carry out some form of financial mismanagement.
