Npower has commenced July payment for batch C, Stream 1 as some beneficiaries have started receiving credit alerts.
Investors King had earlier reported that the management of Npower disclosed that all Npower beneficiaries will be paid their allowance before the end of the month.

One of the recently paid beneficiaries, Janet Olaleke who could not hide her feelings said ” I just got my credit alert for July. Thank you Npower ooo. Please extend our time to two years like it was done for others. God bless Nigeria”.
However, some of the beneficiaries lamented that they have not been credited despite seeing it on their Nasims dashboard that they have been paid.
Dele Alade posted on Facebook “What is going on Nasim? My July shows paid but yet to receive alert. Please do something”.
Another beneficiary, Charles Jude complained that he has not been credited nor does he see any paid message on his Nasims dashboard.
Charles said, ” My own is not showing anything about July like it has not been initiated. I hope I have not been dismissed from the scheme. I am kinda afraid”.
National Social Investment Management System (NASIMS) however has appealed for calm from those who are yet to receive credit alerts or a paid message on their Nasims dashboard. The management disclosed that it is working to make sure all payment issues are resolved as soon as possible.
