The Presidency says it will neither tolerate truancy nor allow independent assessors to extort money from N-power volunteers across the country.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Job Creation and Youth Empowerment, Afolabi Imoukhuede, stated this in Ado-Ekiti while interacting with about 12,000 volunteers posted to the state.
He was reacting to the allegation that some persons who posed as N-Power monitors had approached volunteers demanding the sum of 20 thousand naira from each.
The Presidential Aide acknowledged that the agency utilised independent assessors to monitor the attendance and performance of the volunteers but they were not mandated to collect or demand for payment.
He told the volunteers to use the whistle blower mechanism in the organisation to report such acts to the appropriate authority for immediate arrest and prosecution of offenders.
