Most claim they have not been paid July and June while some others claim what they are owed is more than two months.
See some of their reactions:
Where is @npower_ng beneficiaries stipends for God sake… Do they need to beg for it. Why is this nation not working, is it a curse?! Must the youth suffer in their own country… What a shame @AIT_Online @APCNigeria @FMHDSD @channelstv @MBuhari @Sadiya_farouq @SaharaReporters

The youths that you impacted negatively with your poor managerial service. We are not accepting your felicitation except you pay NPOWER beneficiaries stipends and absorb us into civil service or give us reasonable grants.#NpowerCries#NpowerCries @Sadiya_farouq@MBuhari

After you solely initiated the idea of disengagement of 500,000 @npower_ng beneficiaries from the Npower scheme, and also owe many of them over 3months stipends. With this, you have added to the odds stacked against them
