“A vast majority of the validated beneficiaries have been receiving stipends as at 31st March, 2017. Indeed, an additional number has just been added to the list of those receiving their pay in the last several weeks.”
Other 37,976 volunteers will be cleared
Laolu Akande promised that no one would be left out.
“However, effort is being made to validate others and ensure that the 200,000 places provided for in the first batch of the N-Power programme are all effectively validated as provided for under the first phase of the programme.”
N-Power portal isn’t taking fresh applications
You’re advised to disregard any news going round that the npower portal is taking fresh applications.
Some bad guys have been using the opportunity to defraud unsuspecting jobless Nigerian youths.
“A date for the engagement of more N-power beneficiaries and the reopening of the portal to receive more applications would be announced soon, ” Laolu said.
