So that brings me to the question for those of you who are buying forms, please this is a program that the federal government has offered to you, every process requires no money of any sort. Of course, you want to go and do your application and printing at a cyber café, clearly, you will pay , that’s not what I’m talking about, but when someone comes to you and says this form will guarantee you selection , you pay 5,000, 500 ,you pay a dime ,well, I’m sorry, I think you should politely decline because there is nothing of such.
Our brothers and sisters who are in the hinterlands, maybe don’t have connectivity , yes, some of our state partners are sponsoring forms to get their details and then come up to the urban centers to be able to upload their details into the portal , we don’t frown against that ,we don’t frown against any effort to assist the indigenes in any of our societies in any of the states in Nigeria , but one thing is needful for us all to know, this process only recognizes applications that are in the portal , how it gets into the portal , well , there are many ways by which it can get into the portal , but we only recognize applications that are in the portal .
So please stop paying any of such, as a matter of fact, report such cases to us , you have all our social media channels:
We’ve got the Facebook handle (www.facebook.com/npowerng) with which I’m speaking to you right now.
We’ve got the twitter handle @npower_ng (www.twitter.com/npower_ng).
We’ve got the instagram handle: https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/npowerng/
N-power Support emails:
We’ve got the CALL CENTER NUMBERS
So, please ensure you report any of such cases , now this also goes to my friends who are in the program already ,clearly , I’ve been around 15 states and I’ve seen some myself . I encourage you, stop any and every form of payment on any guise.
We have not asked any state partner to collect money from anyone of you in the name of ID Card , we have not asked any state partner or local government partner to collect any money from you in the guise of monitoring , some of you sent me a tweet today about N-Agro training and they asked you to bring 1200, I was going to ask that colleague of ours asked what state that is, please refrain from making any mandatory payment to anyone whether it’s in the name of N-Power ambassador or local government monitor or state monitor, please refrain from making any of such dubious , illegal payment. What you owe us and owe yourselves is to report it, through any of our social media channels.
N-power Co-operatives (Freewill Contributions)
Now, let me clarify, I have no issues against any freewill contributions, I am very aware a lot of you are already forming clusters of co-operatives in your different fields, some of you are forming esusu, where you decide to have voluntary contributions amongst yourselves, we have nothing against it, afterall, your money has come directly to your account , you’re in full control of whatever you do with your stipend.
Where anyone in the guise of any name, under any guise whether it’s to give you t-shirt, ID cards or monthly clearance seeking to collect any mandatory fee, please refrain from making those payments and report it, we will guard your identity as I have done for many of you who have already reported, we will guard your identity to assure that you are not blacklisted by your employers in the state or witch-hunted, we guarantee you, for those of you that are afraid of reporting, please report.
