Your name is one of the most important details required of you within your NPVN profile, N-power team pay close scrutiny to your names, your Bank Verification Name (BVN).

In a situation whereby your BVN doesn’t corresponds with your name, you should be a bit worried.

Though N-power 2017 registration was unique in the area of preregistration and post registration. It’d be recalled that BVNs were used for screening during registration and during the online test.

Those whose names were found to have conflict with their BVN were not shortlisted for the N-power online test in 2017.
