When payment for Npower December stipend commenced last year, Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Mr. Laolu Akande, emphatically said every verified successful applicants would be paid.
However, some states experienced delay in verification during this period.
While some states completed the verification by December 2016, some few others could not due to unexplained circumstances, Lagos is one of the states.

Since then the story has changed.
Payment is now based on when candidates were verified
“…we pay based on when you were verified and deployed. So if you were not deployed in December, we pay you January,” Akande tweeted on January, 2017.
What does this mean?
This means that December stipends depend on when applicants were verified and deployed.
If you were verified in January, 2017, it means the chances that you get December stipends are 50-50. You can only be paid if your state government intervened.
For instance, Npower successful applicants from Lagos State that were verified 2017 might receive just January salary, because that’s when they were verified and deployed.
In a situation where you were verified December, 2016 and you’re yet to get your payment, keep your hope alive, the delay might be from your bank.
From our research so far, we discovered that those who use First Bank, Union Bank, EcoBank, UBA, Unity Bank experienced some kinds of delay in their December stipend.
We have also found out that some are still receiving alert for the December salary. This means that those who are yet to get should be hopeful.
