Angry N-power Beneficiaries on Friday, July 31, has slammed the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Farouq over delay of June and July stipends.
The Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development used her official Facebook page to inform the public that the public that HM Sadiya Farouq was part of webinar themed HUMAN TRAFFICKING AND THE COVID 19 PANDEMIC: LEARNING CURVE, commemorating the World Day Against Human Trafficking.
To commemorate the World Day Against Human Trafficking HM @sadiya.farouq was part of webinar themed HUMAN TRAFFICKING AND THE COVID 19 PANDEMIC: LEARNING CURVE.
The HM commended @naptipnigeria for setting up the event and appreciated the contributions of the panelists, made up of experts and key stakeholders.
The effects of human trafficking are far-reaching and often devastating when victims are trafficked; they are enslaved, abused physically mentally, and/or made into sex slaves.
Girls and young women are usually the primary targets of traffickers and some of the impacts on the victims include, unwanted pregnancies, loss of education, loss of childhood, and loss of economic opportunities; often culminating in life-threatening diseases and death.
The COVID-19 pandemic is putting the world under enormous strain and as has directly or indirectly destabilized the lives of everyone.
Traffickers are adjusting their business models to the ‘new normal’ created by the pandemic, especially through communication technology. Social media is being used as a platform for horrendous transactions with people as the commodity.
Increasing social and economic inequalities are among the root causes of human trafficking in the country.
The FG is responding to this through several interventions designed to help Nigerians as the world grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Today is a day set aside annually by the United Nations to raise awareness of the situation of victims of human trafficking and sue for the promotion and protection of their rights.
While @fmhdsng is mindful of the importance of this day to government and society, The FG remains Committed to eradicating the deplorable phenomenon of trafficking in persons.
But Angry N-power Beneficiaries who have not been paid their June and July stipends used the opportunity to blast the minister and expressed their dissatisfaction with the way she is handling the program. Below are some of the reactions Newsflash247 could gather from Facebook.

@Bruno Xtopher, “The entire nation has lost confidence in you.How come the institutionalization of NSIP/ Npower brought agony, misery and untold hardship to beneficiaries.This ministry has painted itself black.APC is gradually winding up”.
@Isma’ila Suleiman Ytk,” Mr. Afolabi ferfected better than you. The day of judgement is approaching. Madam you need to consider those beneficiaries of Npower scheme, they’re humans like you with unlimited desires, therefore, give them their limited stipends”.
@Abubakar Musa Kafin Hausa, “Come out an address the Npower Volunteers but u keep silent.

Look the way back precious corrupt leaders and see how the rate of humiliation and disgrace they have face…. Madam take my advice the end time is very dangerous and painful compare to the incumbent.”
@Sesughter San-Chir, “You were brought in power to mock the Nigerian youths. Initially you stated that, you don’t understand the essence of Npower. 5 million people applied for a 400,000 slots of 12 months Npower and you say you are happy to the extend THat you have extend ed the duration by two weeks. For what? Can you select 4000, 000 from 5million youths? You are happy thst we are umemmploy, no wonder you have disengage us but don’t worry. You will surely see the result”
