Delta N-Power beneficiaries urge Buhari to call MTN to order

Aggrieved Staff of the President Mu­hammadu Buhari sponsored N-Power Pro­gramme in Delta State on Monday appealed to Bu­hari to call MTN to order for failing to give them their approved devices.

The beneficiaries who protested to the Nige­rian Union of Journalists (Warri Correspondent Chapel) said their prob­lem started when they were directed to go to MTN office in Warri to collect their devices.
Speaking on behalf of the Aggrieved N-Power Staff during the protest, Mr Michael Saviour told journalists that MTN has refused to hand over their devices to them, saying that the devices were no longer available.

The aggrieved N-Pow­er Staff who came under “Batch A”, chanted soli­darity songs and marched through major streets in Warri in a peaceful pro­test before ending at the NUJ, said they are sus­pecting foul play.

They claimed that the Alaka Branch Manager of MTN has allegedly thwarted their efforts and failed to give them atten­tion in collecting the de­vices after being redirect­ed from Asaba to the 3 Battalion Nigerian Army Barracks, Effurun, Uvwie Local Government Area.

Mr Saviour added that they decided to raise the alarm because they have not gotten any reliable information either from Asaba or Warri, even when the devices have been approved by the Federal Government to be distributed to them.

Saviour who was flanked by Okiemute Ronuwe, Odiakaose Fi­delis and others, however, noted that their salaries have been coming regu­larly saying, “We cannot say it is a Scam but our problem is with MTN.”

All efforts to reach the Alaka Branch Manager of MTN proved abortive as calls made to his phone were not picked.
