UPDATE: N-Power build application portal was opened sometimes ago to accept fresh applications, but it has since closed. Prospective applicants have been warned to be wary of 419.
The NBuild is a non-graduate programme.
Remember we told you sometimes in March 2017 that N-Power warned prospective applicants to steer clear of new applications which were not announced on the official website.
You can find our guide on how to apply for the 2018 N-Power Build Registration, though the online form is yet to come up at the time of this update. In a few hours from now it will.
For the past four weeks, rumour about the reopening of the NPVN portal for new applications have taken over the internet, and fraudsters have also taken the advantage to dupe job-searching Nigerian youths.
One of the prospective applicants told infomediaNG that he’ asked to pay N15,000 for him to make the awaiting second batch.
Meanwhile the Federal Government has consistently said that recruitment into the scheme is absolutely FREE.
A disclaimed on the NPVN portal reads:
“Our attention has been drawn to false and fraudulent reports circulating especially in the Social Media that new N-Power applications are now being received on the N-Power portal.
“There are also equally false reports and claims about an unauthorised request for vital personal information of beneficiaries such as BVN, Account Number, among others not known to the Presidency or any arm of the Federal Government.
“Beneficiaries and potential beneficiaries of the N-Power Volunteer Corps should ignore such reports emanating from fake sources and outlets and only relate with bonafide presidency and FG sources and web portals (http://npvn.npower.gov.ng, http://npower.gov.ng).
“For the avoidance of doubt, legitimate communication about the N-Power is done through firstname.lastname@example.org or the relevant Focal Persons appointed by each of the 36 States and the FCT.
“Any information that does not emanate from this identified sources or directly from the Presidency should be simply and outrightly dismissed.
“Date for commencement of the next batch of volunteers for the N-Power program will be announced on http://npvn.npower.gov.ng and http://npower.gov.ng,” the statement reads.
