The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management, Sadiya Umar Farouq, finally fulfilled her commitment to convert the N-Power scheme to political patronage.

Contrary to the failed attempt by the Nigerian Senate’s spokesperson to defend the allocation of N-Power slots to the parliamentarians and other politicians, there is now evidence of allocation of slots to the National Assembly.

According to SaharaReporters, a member of the parliament concerned about the deceit playing between the parliamentarians and the minister confessed to how the minister allocated slots in the N-Power to the National Assembly.

In the sharing formular, each member of the leadership of the Assembly is allocated 500 slots; each senator got 200 slots and each House of Representatives member was given 150 slots. Farouq converted the successful youth empowerment programme to a bazaar and political patronage.

Other ministers have also been allocated 100 slots each by Farouq and forms are freely distributed in government offices in Abuja to aides and others.
