Update on Brian and N-power Speedstar tablets

According to N-powerNG, those who selected Brian and Speedstar devices in the eight stated listed above would not be contacted as the devices were recently delivered and are currently being pre-loaded with information.

Similarly, plans are underway to get devices to existing beneficiaries in other states.

N-powerNG said on its social media channels that, “During the course of collecting your NpowerNG devices, do NOT pay anyone one NAIRA for anything, whether to get into the distribution centre or at the MTN Office or anywhere or for anything.

“No one is to charge you for anything. Where someone charges you, take a picture and report them immediately.”

N-power Device Distribution/Collection re-commences in Rivers State

N-powerNG device distribution earlier suspended in Rivers State has re-commenced, the job initiative programme said in a Facebook post on September 20, 2017.

The collection was some days ago put on hold by N-power headquarters, Abuja, due to some challenges experienced by beneficiaries.

One major challenge they faced was over crowding of L.A Kings Hotel, the only collection centre then, which the police officers, who were to provide security capitalized on, and started collecting money from volunteers before they’re allowed into the centre.

A Facebook post on N-power Volunteers Rivers confirmed that some of those who are yet to get the gadget have started getting pick up centre address some hours ago.

“Rivers state has recommenced device collection .My neighbour just got a message to come to Air Force, Port Harcourt tomorrow to collect AfriOne 2-in-1,” one of them posted on Facebook.

N-powerNG said in Facebook, “During the course of collecting your NpowerNG devices, do NOT pay anyone one NAIRA for anything, whether to get into the distribution centre or at the MTN Office or anywhere or for anything.

“No one is to charge you for anything. Where someone charges you, take a picture and report them immediately.”

The Air Force Base, Port Harcourt, has been added to the collection centres in Rivers State.

Volunteers have equally been urged to wait for an SMS before they go to the pickup centre.

BoI-sponsored Devices are not for sale, N-power warns beneficiaries

N-power, an arm of the Social Investment programme of President Muhammadu Buhari-led government has issues a strong warning to existing beneficiaries of its devices, who were planning of selling their gadget for monetary value.

The cheapest of the tablets being currently given out FREE or at HIGHLY subsidized rate to the first batch of the programme costs between N90, 000 to N120, 000.

The gadgets, supported by the Bank of Industry contains everything about the Social Investment Programme (N-power), training in various categories ranging from health to teach, to agriculture.

They also contain free tech training and empowerment that are not ordinarily free on some of the online programme offering the same topics.

In a communiqué on its social media channels, NpowerNG strongly warned volunteers to desist from such plan, saying, “Once caught, you would not ONLY Be dismissed from the Programme (without any appeal), you would be blacklisted from other FG Social Investment Programmes and a Lien would also be placed on your Bank accounts for the full refund of the asset cost to the Bank of Industry.”

The warning reads:

It has come to our attention that some of our N-Power Volunteers are attempting to dispose their device, we urge you in your best interest not to do so.

Recall that N-Power is a Learn/Work/

Entrepreneurship Programme of the Federal Government’s National Social Investment Programme for unemployed Young Graduates between the ages of 18 – 35.

Please note that the N-Power Devices currently being distributed to our N-Power volunteers were secured through an Asset Finance arrangement for 20months with the Bank of Industry (BOI) by the Federal Government National Social Investment Programme.

As such the devices are to aid the continual learning and development of our volunteers which seeks to enhance their employability – ready for the Labour market when they exit the Programme after 24months.

These devices are also Work Tools as it would aid the discharge of their community functions in your primary places of assignment be it at the Public Schools, Primary Health Centres or the Agriculture Development Farm Settlements.

In addition, these devices contain global knowledge content contributed by some of our Global partners such as Cisco, Google, Microsoft etc on ICT, Leadership & Entrepreneurship for their continuous development.

To this end, volunteers are warned that if you dispose your devices, don’t utilize the learning content on these devices, or you are found absent at your Places of assignment, we have devised varies means to gather such information and data.

Once caught, you would not ONLY Be dismissed from the Programme (without any appeal), you would be blacklisted from other FG Social Investment Programmes and a Lien would also be placed on your Bank accounts for the full refund of the asset cost to the Bank of Industry.

Distribution of N-power devices is currently ongoing in eight states across the country. They include: Lagos, Abuja, Sokoto, Enugu, Ebonyi, Kano, Kaduna, and Delta.

Collection of NpowerNG tablets was suspended in Rivers States so as to allow the team decentralize collection centre due to difficulty faced by the volunteers in that part of the country.

Distribution of NpowerNG tablet devices will resume in Rivers States when plans are concluded on multiple collection centres being organized by the team and the sponsor of the devices, Bank of Industry (BoI).
