Using N-power support email to Correct Your N-power Name

One of the reasons why some of the N-power 2016 beneficiaries experienced delay in their monthly stipend was when it’s detected that the name in their N-power profile ddin’t correspond with the ones in their bank.

Married women experienced this most, and those who gave their registration details to cafe attendant, where errors were made.

If you fall in any of the category above, here Is how to edit your N-power profile withing the NPVn dashboard so that you don’t begin to experience delay in your monthly stipend.

Step 1:

Go to your bank to be sure your name is correctly spelt.

If your case is marital, then go to your bank with an evidence of change of name like marriage certifcate, an application letter to effect change of name in your bank acount details, and your ID card that bears the name you want to change to.

That shouldn’t take more than a day. Just for your account officer to see the proofs and effect the necessary change.

Step 2:

Check and cross check to make sure the exact name in your npvn profile tallies with your bank account details.

Step 3:

Lastly, scan the evidence of the change of name, type the NOW corrected bank account details, the program you applied for, phone number, email address, subject of your complaint: CHANGE OF NAME

If you’re N-power 2017 batch send your details to:

The second option is to login to your N-power Volunteer Network (NPVN dashboard)

This guide is for you to correct your N–power name if the name in your NPVN Portal isn’t what you entered during registration process in 2017.

Why do you need to correct your N-power name?

You need to correct your N-power name if your you’re is Adekoya Igbeti Aleike, but on login in you found Akodeya Igbeti Alake, then you’re likely to encounter problems when it’s time to start receiving your monthly salary.

Here is a guide on how to apply for N-power name correction. It’s also imperative to note that you can not edit your N-power name, you can only send your correct name to the N-power team within the NPVN portal.

How your name would be corrected

When you send the correct names to those behind the N-power scene in Abuja, keep checking your NPVN portal, and don’t bother to send the same complaint repeatedly. They will work on it.

Your N-power 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.

That has really reduced the burden of having to deal with the issue of changing of names, going to your bank to make correction as we had in the 2016 batch.

That problem really was peculiar to the 2016 first batch, some of them are still disturbed over non-payment of stipends.

That has been avoided already in 2017 second batch list, but some beneficiaries told that they saw misspelt names or wrong names in their NPVN Portal while trying to upload their ID and photos.
