HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES URGE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO RESUME PAYMENT OF N-POWER                                                                                     13-03-24

By Sadiq Aminu                                                        The House of Representatives has urged the Federal Government to resume the payment of N-Power and other Social Investment Program to ease the sufferings being faced by Vulnerable Nigerians.

In an urgent motion of public importance, a member representing Orhionwon Uhumwode, of Edo State, Mr. Billy Osawaru, said the resumed payment of N-Power and other Social Investment Program will reduce poverty and hunger in the country.

The House noted that the halting of the program as a result of suspension of the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation and the sacking of the National Coordinator of the Social Investment Program has further subjected vulnerable Nigerians who are beneficiaries of the program to more hardship and could as well lead to social unrest.

The House emphasized that the call for the resumption of payment for the program was for the stability, development and to ensure equitable distribution of wealth among the citizens.
The House explained that the planned steering committee Board to be overseen by the Minister of Finance to supervise the program is abnormal, as the establishment of Social Investment Program was an act of Parliament that will always require legislative amendment before it could be supervised by another body.
Adopting the motion the House urged the Federal Government to expedite action to complete the ongoing investigation of Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation.

The House also urged the Federal Government to put on hold the planned establishment of Steering Committee Board to oversee the Program.
