A New Dawn for the NASIMS Portal
NASIMS, short for the National Social Investment Management System, has decided to shake things up a bit. It has moved its old website, nasims.gov.ng, to a spanking new platform. This novel platform, known as the Self Service Portal (SSP), is available at ssp.nasims.gov.ng.
The primary reason behind this move was to optimize the user experience. The old system had its limitations and was rather tricky to navigate. But with the introduction of the SSP, those issues are history.
The Current State of NPower Stipends
As it stands, there’s no fresh intel regarding NPower stipend payments. However, it’s noteworthy that NPower has made some overdue stipend payments to a number of beneficiaries who complied with certain directives.
Stipend Payout Delays: A Growing Concern
Beneficiaries of the NPower scheme are expressing distress over stipend delays. This issue has been present since before President Bola Tinubu took office, and sadly, it remains unresolved. This delay in disbursements is straining beneficiaries who depend heavily on this aid.
Presidential Aid to Nigerian Families
President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is stepping in to lighten the burden for Nigerian families. In light of the government’s withdrawal of subsidies, the President has announced financial assistance for 12 million families. Each family is to receive a monthly payment of N8,000 for half a year.
Engaging NPower Batch C Beneficiaries
On July 10, 2023, NASIMS held an interactive conversation known as “Half Hour With NPower C Beneficiaries”. The engagement proved enlightening, and here are some of the key takeaways:
The NPower C1 initiative concluded in August 2022. Nonetheless, the payments for September, October, and November were taken into account in the Nexit package, authorized by H.M. Sadiya Umar Farouq.
The NPower initiative’s fate lies in the hands of President Tinubu. Until his decision is made known, NASIMS can’t confirm if stipend payments will continue.
The exact payout dates for the outstanding months remain a mystery, as approval from the new administration is still pending. Once greenlighted, the disbursements will commence.
C1 beneficiaries who are awaiting their payments for the aforementioned months will receive them as soon as the necessary funds are sanctioned and ready.
Pre-selected beneficiaries should heed the instructions outlined in their messages and stay tuned for more information.
C2 beneficiaries who had errors in their account details have been sent validation links. C1 beneficiaries encountering payment difficulties can also utilize this opportunity to rectify their details.
