N-power has officially started deducting money from volunteers’ monthly salary for the tablet devices.
The deduction will only affect those who selected Techno pad and Speedstar.
This means that volunteers under this category received N29,459 for the month of March.
The deduction wasn’t by your bank, as we don’t think any bank would cut such amount from your account balance.
“I was surprised when I received incomplete March stipend. Initially, I thought the deduction is from my bank,” a disturbed volunteer told infobase Tuesday.
Today, the volunteer who wants to remain anonymous forwarded to our team the explanatory message he received from N-power Team.
“Dear Volunteer, Kindly recall you selected a Tecno pad device with your commitment to incur N135.2 over 20 months. The deductions have now begun hence N541 will be deducted for over 5 months between March 2018 – July 2018”
It would be recalled that it was clearly explained during device selection process in 2017 that some tablet devices were not completely free.
However, the tablet devices were financially supported by Bank of Industry, and highly subsidised by the federal government.
Today,NpowerNG provided more insights into the deductions entitled, “Deduction in Stipends”
The team writes:
“A few beneficiaries will have noticed a reduction in their stipends.
“You will recall that the Federal Government entered into a 20-month Asset Finance Agreement with the Bank of Industry for the N-Power devices.
“Beneficiaries who selected the Tecno and Speedstar devices incurred additional monthly charges over and beyond the N4,500 monthly device credit voucher of the Federal Government.
“Consequently, the additional costs will be deducted from their stipends between the months of March and July, 2018.”
For the five months period, it means you’ll incur a total of N2,705.
To us, this is more than affordable. Paying that amount on a device worth over N80,000.
Next month don’t be surprised as the deduction will continue till July , 2018.
