The batch A&B beneficiaries of NPower programme who were disengaged by the Federal Government in June and July 2020 respectively have rejected the purported training being touted by the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Farouq calling it a deceptive tactic to deny them employment.
The 500,000 disengaged Npower Beneficiaries on Friday hit back at the Minister, Sadiya Farouk, saying they’re fed up with her tricks and deceits:
According to the beneficiaries: “Sadiya Umar words are not to be trusted.
Sadiya Umar is not new to exited volunteers. since our disengagement last year, she has been uttering deceptive words.
“The only thing she said which has come to pass is the disengagement of 500,000 Npower volunteers. we shouldn’t take her words serious. It’s her usual tactics to calm volunteers down not to embark on another peaceful protest.
“We don’t need training. we are graduates. we have been trained in our various institutions and the experience we had during our two, four years respectively in Npower programme is enough to start up business. so her so called training is a delayed tactics and a cover up to her mess.
“If she mean her words, let her answer the following questions:
1. Training on what?
2. When is the training commencing precisely?
3. The duration of the training?
4. The amount to be given to exited volunteers after her so called training?
“We need clarification on the aforemationed questions. we are fed up with her tricks and deceits.”
