Recently, news broke out on social media on how some States in Nigeria were forcing Npower Beneficiaries to participate in political activities or risked being removed from social investment program of the Federal Government.
This development many have described as “barbaric” and “unnecessary”, as Npower was not originally meant for “political patronage”.
However, in a swift reaction, NPOWER official twitter handle has asked the Npower Beneficiaries to disregard such threat if any as the program was/is not meant for political patronage.
In a statement made available on twitter handle @Npower, the statement reads thus:
” Dear N-Power Volunteers,
We have received reports that certain states have threatened to remove N-Power beneficiaries for refusing to partake in political activities.
First, no one can remove you.
Secondly, REPORT anyone who threatens you.
