#NpowerNG | #NpowerNigeria

Since the official release of the N-power 2017 final list three days ago, the OTP login link of the job recruitment portal http://npvn.npower.gov.ng/login/ has been down for more than four hours when monitored by our team Wednesday, April 25, 2018 from 19:07 to 23:43.

At press time, the domain npower.gov.ng was ranked 162 in Nigeria, and 41, 996 in the world, according to alexa rank.

Its other subdomain include, npvn.npower.gov.ng, and portal.npower.gov.ng.

N-power portal had 54% PageSpeed Score, according to gtmetrix.com, a free tool that analyzes website page’s speed performance.

Successful applicants were directed to generate and use the One Time Password (OTP) *347*5*88# to login to the portal and update their data, but thousands of the 2017 batch of beneficiaries are finding “impossible” at this hour.

Before now, the over excited beneficiaries bombarded the official facebook page of the team with questions and N-power possible solutions

The ongoing data update is the second phase of the job initiative programme of the APC-led government.

In 2016, 200,000 young Nigerian graduates were employed, while another 300,000 are currently undergoing NPVN data update, to bring the total number of the graduate programme to 500,000.

There is also the N-build for non-graduates, who are currently undergoing various training at FG-certified workshops across the country.

  • power is a 2-year job by Nigerian Federal Government as a measure to reduce unemployment.

Infobase Final thought:

  1. We commend the hardworking team behind the scene, however, we expected the technical to have prepared for such a magnitude traffic projected to hit the portal doing the same thing the same time.
  2. We are optimistic that the team is working on the portal, as such we urge all beneficiaries to be patient.

    • Hi Comfort, keep trying, your inability to do that right now is due to unprecedented traffic to the portal.

      We also believe NPOWER is working to get it fixed.
