Recall the authorities of the federal government social intervention scheme, had in response to inquiries from concerned individual, stated the list of successful candidates for the next batch of volunteers would soon be released, urging them to monitor the organization’s social media platforms for updates.
However, over a month after the announcement, applicants are still waiting for the list of successful candidates.
Meanwhile, the scheme also recently apologized for the delay in the payment of October stipends for current beneficiaries, blaming it on technical fault.
