BEVERLY HILLS, March 07, (THEWILL) – The Federal Government has released a statement urging job seekers interested in the N-power scheme to beware of fraudsters who are requesting for vital information form people with the disguise of the scheme.

According to Laolu Akande, Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the President in the Office of the Vice President, any information that does not emanate from identified sources or directly from the Presidency should be simply and out rightly dismissed.

“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,” the statement read.

“There are also equally false reports and claims about an unauthorised request for vital personal information of beneficiaries on web portals not known to the Presidency or any arm of the Federal Government.

“Nigerians, especially 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.

“For the avoidance of doubt, legitimate communication about the N-Power is done through [email protected] 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 out rightly dismissed.

“In due time, we shall announce information regarding the Buhari administration’s plan to ramp up the number of N-Power beneficiaries from the current 200,000 to 350,000 under the 2017 budget proposals now before the National Assembly.”
