Presidential aide on Job Creation, Afolabi Imoukhuede, has announced the blacklisting of 60 volunteers of the federal Government job creation scheme, N-Power.
Imoukhuede made the announcement when he addressed 5,559 N-Power volunteers at the Banquet Hall of the Kwara state Government House.
He gave July ending as deadline for those experiencing payment issues to resolve them or be removed from the programme.
Imoukhuede had led a team of monitoring and evaluation officials to assess the performance of the volunteers in the state as well as mandate the state’s institutional partners to take absolute charge of the volunteers.
According to the aide, many volunteers have been collecting unbroken stipends of N30,000 monthly without reporting for work which discourages serious volunteers from giving in their best.
He said the 60 volunteers already identified nationwide would be used to set example, noting that the programme was not a cake-sharing or cake-collection scheme.
