The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development during the official onboarding process of batch c stream 1 also announced that NSIP secured USSD code for the beneficiaries for technical support.
Sadiya Farouq stated that beneficiaries who have issues can dial a secured N-Power USSD code *45665# to get technical support.
She said shortcode is to ensure that the challenges of communication are addressed as it relates to limitations on information flow and internet access across the country.
How does the NSIP code work?
InfomediaNG, put the code to test and we discovered that it’s a communication code secured through the Nigerian Communication Communication (NCC) in conjunction with major mobile network providers.
If you dial the code, you’d get a popup message “welcome to NSIP service. Select the programme from the list below”
The code supports the following subsidiaries of the National Social Investments Programme:
N-Power is designed to reduce the rate of unemployment among Nigerian youths, it started in 2016, and the enrolment process of the batch C is ongoing. Beneficiaries would be paid N30,000 as monthly stipends.
For the batch c stream 1 to use the *45665# code, select “1” where you would be required to enter your Bank Verification Number (BVN)
