No lesser than 17 N-Power volunteers are set to face prosecution for allegedly receiving monthly stipends from the Federal Government without performing their required tasks.
This was according to Mr Afolabi Imoukhuede, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Job Creation (N-Power Scheme), who made the disclosure to journalists on Wednesday.
According to Imoukhuede, the said volunteers have been on government payroll since December but haven’t rendered any services at their place of primary duty.
“This issue of them not going to work is exception that we are not going to take chances.
“We are going to really blow that exception so that it becomes a deterrent.
“Because in the school where I identified them, their dutiful colleagues, the volunteers who are the true Ambassadors of N-power, are there and they know these people.
“So now if we don’t investigate and prosecute them they now get de-motivated.
“They must remain motivated to continue to work regardless of what season it is; rainy season, dry seasons or what have you,’’ said Imoukhuede.
