According to the Federal Government of Nigeria, there’s a plan to further expand the NPower programme, which is aimed at improving lives of several unemployed Nigerian Youths.

What are the requirements for registering with NPower?

Before we continue with the registration, you must have the following required information and documents ready at hand, so as not to encounter any hiccups along the line:

  • Bank verification number (BVN)
  • Valid phone number
  • Accessible Email address
  • Important documents like birth certificate, CV, school leaving certificates.

Is NPower registration form free?

In recent times, I’ve had to answer questions regarding whether NPower registration is free. First and foremost, I want to clarify that the program is not targeted at making money from people, it is instead targeted at alleviating poverty. Therefore, registration is totally FREE. If you visit any café or shop that tells you that you have to pay for the form, then it’s a scam.

However, visiting a café comes with charges. In other words, any money you spent at the café to complete your registration is most likely the cost of your internet activities incurred.

Usually, NPower announces the date for aptitude tests, depending on the category you chose during registration. Once an aptitude test date is set, make sure you participate and pass the test. Through that, you’ll stand a good chance of getting selected.

If you get selected, you’ll need to be present at the physical verification center — on the designated date.

The physical verification exercise takes place for the purpose of fishing out false documents — including birth certificates, School Leaving Certificates, state of origin, etc. Therefore, you must be able to provide good evidence to back up whatever information you filled in during registration.
