This delay has become more unbearable since the program was transferred from the office of the vice president prof Yemi Osibanjo, to a new ministry, Humanitarian Affairs and disaster management.


The minister in charge, Mrs. Sadiya Umar Farouq has been giving excuses on reasons for the delays since October last year.

The volunteers as of today, April 10th, 2020, are yet to be paid their March stipends, especially now prices of goods have tripped in the market, and Nigerians asked to obey the stay at home order to curb the Covid-19 pandemic.

We are at this moment appealing to the honorable minister to pay us our March 2020 stipend or resign from the ministry if she can no longer do the needful as at when due. 2017 sets of volunteer devices has not been given, and nothing has been said about it yet.

Increment in stipends 

2016 veterans have served for long now and still earning stipends of 30,000 naira which cannot buy much today in our today’s markets.

While being thankful to President Buhari and his vice Professor Yemi Osibanjo for this laudable program, we demand its sustainability, permanency of volunteers after graduation from the training, and upward review of their salary instead of stipends as obtainable by other graduates in other ministries.

Among these volunteers are those under the graduate categories, which are qualified trained teachers under the N-Teach category, qualified Health personnels under the N-Health category, and qualified agric extension workers under the N-Agro category.

We are asking for the stipends of the work which we have done, not begging for money.

As of today, April 10, 2020, which is good Friday, no march stipends have been paid yet, meaning we are gonna stay hungry during this Easter celebration. This is wickedness and we can’t take it any more.

All the minister’s incompetence and endless excuses for the delayed stipends are no longer acceptable to all of us 500 000 volunteers across the Nation.

We plead with her to have a fear of God and treat us as a sincere mother to her children or respectfully resign if she can’t manage the ministry anymore.
