Federal Government alert Npower Beneficiaries on Portals and links for device collection says it is fake news, the devices will distributed according to all 2016 and 2017 successful applicants. The goodnews is that the process of device distribution has commenced and all beneficiaries would be duly informed via the N-Power website or other verified social media contacts of the NSIO.
The National Social Investment Office (NSIO) on Thursday advised Nigerians, particularly beneficiaries of the N-Power Programme, to discountenance the ongoing fake social media messages about the scheme.
Mr Justice Bibiye, the Communications Officer, NSIO, in a statement to NAN on Thursday in Abuja, urged the beneficiaries to be circumspect.
According to him, those fraudulent messages were put out to deceive unsuspecting individuals into applying for a fresh batch of N-Power volunteers or N-Power devices via fabricated links on social media.
The statement added that “Such messages are the handiwork of fraudsters who would stop at nothing in trying to rip innocent people of their hard-earned resources.
“We wish to state categorically that the Federal Government has yet to commence the distribution of devices to Batch B, N-Power beneficiaries.
According to him, “Indeed, the process has commenced and all beneficiaries would be duly informed via the N-Power website or other verified social media contacts of the NSIO, when the devices are available.
“Electronic devices such as IPads and laptops, among others, are part of the working tools given to beneficiaries of the N-Power programme.
“The devices are preloaded with learning modules to help beneficiaries function effectively in their various specializations at their Places of Primary Assignment (PPA),’’ he concluded. As reported by DAILY POST.NG
