Fresh letter claims N-Power Batch C registration process has been changed

A disturbing letter is currently circulating online indicating that the process of registration for Batch C beneficiaries of the N-Power programme may have been changed even without those trying to enrol knowing about that.

Recall that the enrollment process for Batch C beneficiaries commenced online on June 26, where prospective beneficiaries are expected to upload some documents to be considered for the programme.

But a letter circulating online, the authenticity of which has not yet been confirmed, claims that the process has been changed.

The letter which purportedly emanated from the office of the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Katsina State, directed all heads of local government administration in that state to forward documents of those who applied for the programmes for what was described as “proper registration”.

According to the letter, “As a result of some changes in the process of N-Power registration that has already commenced today, Friday, 26th June, 2020, I am directed to write and request you to direct all the Heads of Local Government Administration to collect and forward the recent passports, photocopies of certificates and means of identifications of all applicants for N-Power programme forwarded to this department to enable us register them effectively and efficiently.”

The letter entitled “RE: Request for Curriculum Vitae of Unemployed Graduates from the 34 LGAs of Katsina State” was purportedly signed by Abdu Musa, Special Adviser/Focal Person SIP.

This letter is currently causing agitation among many prospective beneficiaries across the country who are now thinking that the process may have already been hijacked by politicians who want to fill the Batch C positions with their acquaintances.

The the letter allegedly emanated from Katsina state, many prospecting beneficiaries are believing that same may be the situation in so many other states. These prospective beneficiaries are wondering why members of the public are being made to waste their time and money registering online whereas the process may have been changed.

But many other prospective beneficiaries believe the letter may not be authentic as it was secretly snapped and leaked on Facebook by one Sade Mustapha Ahmed, with an accompanying message: “Oya U should keep wasting time by filling NPOWER PORTAL”.
