Ishiba Payment Updates 2021

Adding to the constraints is the prevailing Covid 19 pandemic which has crippled not only the economy, but several earlier planned activities. The NGO had to look for newer sponsors and strategies to get funds through without paying to same people multiple times.
According to a 2021 update from Ishiba, the Central Bank of Nigeria will disburse the funds to TELPECON, a new sponsor. TELPECON will then get it disbursed to all chairmen/chairpersons and Directors. Verification of all the beneficiaries by the chairmen and directors would follow. The names of those successful which must be a maximum of 1000, including their account details would have to be completed in an excel sheet format and sent to the provided software for onward scanning to avoid duplication of names
Following this, the management would then get a schedule to the bank for onward payment through the provided account of the beneficiaries or prepared Interswitch card to all the verified beneficiaries. The notification also noted that the clusters account would be credited by the NGO for the purpose of Cluster Community Project only and shall be managed by the three signatories with the supervision of the NGO.
