N-Power Batch C: 4 Differences Between N-Power Volunteers And N-Power Independent Monitors

A lot of N-Power Batch C applicants have been in a state of confusion, infact most N-Power Batch C applicants believe N-Power independent monitors are N-Power volunteers, yes, in this case the N-Power independent monitors are also Volunteers, but there is more to this that distinguishes N-Power volunteers from N-Power independent monitors, although N-Power independent monitors will receive a stipend of ₦30,000 which is similar to the stipend of the N-Power Volunteers, but the job description of the N-Power independent monitors is totally different from the job description of the N-Power Volunteers.

3) The N-Power independent monitors relays issues encountered by the N-Power Volunteers to the N-Power focal persons.


4) The N-Power independent monitors communicates directly with the Ministry for Humanitarian Affairs, this is a feat which the N-Power Volunteers cannot directly achieve.


N-Power Batch C: Deployment/Physical Verification Will Be Communicated Via Email/Text

According to N-Power (NASIMS) there is no fixed date yet for N-Power physical verification and deployment, but the N-Power physical verification/deployment exercise will commence soon.

5 Ways To Secure Your N-Power (NASIMS) Portal

A lot of N-Power Batch C applicants have been complaining that whenever they login into their N-Power (NASIMS) Profile they do see another information most times on their portal, infact an N-Power Batch C applicant (name withheld) said another BVN number was being displayed on the portal, some N-Power Batch C applicants also experience a completely different N-Power ID when they log into the N-Power NASIMS portal.


The following 8 steps below if properly carried out by an N-Power Batch C applicant would help secure and keep the NASIMS (N-Power) profile safe from invaders and intruders online.

It has been observed that most N-Power Batch C applicants either use their name combination or date of birth combination to generate passwords, these passwords are very weak and common and a lot of scammers online could easily hack it thereby gaining access to the N-Power Batch C applicant's dashboard.


3) An N-Power Batch C applicant should  not reveal his or her sensitive data or personal information such as mobile number, password, account details and login password publicly on social media or to anyone the N-Power Batch C applicant do not know, even if the person claims to be an N-Power staff, please do not reveal sensitive information online, N-Power would communicate to N-Power Volunteers with issues via email, through NASIMS.gov.ng


4) An N-Power Batch C applicant should not ask for assistance from anyone unknown to the N-Power Batch C applicant for NASIMS portal profile update.

Should an N-Power Batch C applicant have any challenges login in the N-Power Batch C applicant should either wait for the internet traffic congestion to ease a bit, or visit any Cyber cafe which has a strong network for easy access to your NASIMS N-Power Profile, even while at the cafe ensure to logout of your portal after every task completed, and do not allow the cafe attendant to handle sensitive informations.


5) An N-Power Batch C applicant using the mobile phone should also endeavour to logout after completing any task online.

3 Reasons Why N-Power Batch C Will Be Strictly Monitored

The following below are reasons why N-Power Batch C applicants would be monitored:


1) The previous N-Power Batch A and B did not fully meet the objectives of the N-Power program, the objective of the program was to make at least 99.9% of the previous N-Power Batches A and B entrepreneurs, thereby fulfilling the objectives of lifting the youths out of poverty which the ministry did not fully realise according to statistics, only about 30% of the disengaged N-Power volunteers have become entrepreneurs, so the Ministry for Humanitarian Affairs do not want a repetition.


2) It was observed that absenteeism was pronounced in certain local government area and states and the ministry would not want a repetition of such which would undermine the objectives of the N-Power program, hence the need for N-Power independent monitors.


3) The N-Power independent monitors could act as a mediator between the N-Power focal persons and the N-Power Volunteers, the independent monitors could relay challenges faced by N-Power Volunteers to the N-Power focal persons who inturn passes the issue to the Ministry for Humanitarian Affairs, this was lacking in the previous N-Power Batches A and B program, a lot of N-Power Batch A and B Volunteers had issues but do not know who to run to, with the introduction of the independent monitoring these challenges would be rectified.



N-Power Batch C: Unconfirmed Report On Physical Verification

There is an unconfirmed information online that N-Power physical verification starts on the 25th of June, please this information is not confirmed for now.

All N-Power Batch C applicants are advised to continue checking their emails or the NASIMS (N-Power) Self Service portal for N-Power updates.

N-Power Batch C: How To Obtain Your BVN Printout

Although the BVN print out might not be an essential document for the physical screening exercise, that is, should there be an N-Power physical verification, but the BVN print out, is necessary to clear any benefits of doubt that might affect an N-Power Batch C applicant's payment, probably due to name and age mismatch.


So in order to obtain your BVN print out an N-Power Batch C applicant should simply go to the bank with his or her BVN number, and request for a printout from the bank customer service unit.


The BVN print out should contain full names of the N-Power Batch C applicant, the correct BVN number, and date of birth of the N-Power Batch C applicant, and also the photo of an N-Power Batch C applicant.


With this document an N-Power Batch C applicant can simply go to the NASIMS N-Power self service portal and edit the name and other details on his or her dashboard to correspond with the particulars on the BVN print out.

N-Power Gives A 50/50 Reply To A Prospective N-Power Volunteer

An N-Power Batch C applicant that was not shortlisted took to the self service care portal to ask N-Power NASIMS about the fate of un-shortlisted N-Power applicants and the N-Power Batch C applicant got the 50/50 reply.


This simply means that N-Power Batch C applicant that did not make it for N-Power C1 might or might not even make it for N-Power C2.


At this point all N-Power Batch C applicant that did not make it for N-Power C1 should just be optimistic and positive and continue checking his or her mails, for goodnews.

N-Power Conducts Only An Online Test And No Examination

There is a publication online, informing NPower Batch C applicants that they are required to take test and exam, to be considered for deployment, please this information is false.


N-Power (NASIMS) conducts only a single online test, which elapsed few weeks ago, after the N-Power online test, all N-Power Batch C applicants were told to check their email addresses for congratulatory messages or the "check back" later messages, biometrics followed afterwards, and the next stage is deployment and possibly physical verification at the districts or at the National Orientation Agency Office, as situation might warrant.


We therefore urge N-Power Batch C applicants to shun messages of such asking N-Power Batch C applicants to complete an examination, N-Power/NASIMS nor an N-Power Batch C applicant's place of primary assignment will not and cannot conduct another examination, the only examination will be the scrutiny of the N-Power Batch C applicant's credentials.



18 Jun 2021

N-Power Batch C Examination, Not From NASIMS

The screenshot attached is not from NASIMS, all N-Power Batch C applicants are strictly advised to be vigilant and extremely cautious at this period.

All N-Power Batch C applicants are herewith advised and implored to ignore, the message and continue with their NASIMS N-Power biometric enrollment, and continue to check the NASIMS self service portal for further information.



GPS To Track N-Power Batch C Volunteers

According to the Permanent Secretary For Humanitarian Affairs, Bashir Nura Alkali, GPS placed on the tablets of N-Power independent monitors will be used to track and provide real time locations of both the N-Power Batch C applicants and the independent N-Power Batch C monitors.


An N-Power Batch C applicant and N-Power Independent Monitor cannot be in Lagos, and sending reports from Benue, the GPS will show that the N-Power Batch C applicant as well as the N-Power Independent Monitor is in Lagos.

Quite a handful of N-Power Batch C applicants have been shocked by the abrupt change in colour of their N-Power dashboard background, from white to black (see attached screenshot) this is really not a cause of concern.

The N-Power Batch C applicant should simply go to his or her phone browser settings, click on "theme" and change background colour from dark back to white. This would rectify the issue.

N-Power Batch C: No Official Date For Deployment

A lot of N-Power Batch C applicants have been asking the question about when exactly would deployment commence? Infact most N-Power Batch C applicants have been saying "done with biometrics when will deployment commence"? 


For now, according to NASIMS N-Power there is no official date for N-Power Batch C1 deployment (see attached screenshot as evidence), all N-Power Batch C1 Applicants have always been implored to keep checking their NASIMS N-Power dashboard for updates.


Note: Deployment will only commence only after lots of N-Power Batch C1 Applicants have fully completed their N-Power NASIMS Biometrics.



Reason Why Some N-Power Batch C Applicants Might Not Make It For C2

If an N-Power Batch C applicant is not shortlisted for N-Power Batch C stream1 the N-Power Batch C applicant might still not make it for N-Power Batch C 2 stream 2.


The reason is because according to NASIMS (N-Power) from the attached screenshot, the word "might" used means under probability.


Therefore an N-Power Batch C applicant, that did not qualify for C1 should not be excited, but the N-Power Batch C applicant should rather be hopeful and optimistic, the N-Power Batch C2 selection often times are extremely tough, based on past N-Power Batch B experience, this might be the area where influence matters a lot.



N-Power: Fake Notification Message Alert

N-Power Batch C applicants should be careful of the message (view attached in screenshot) telling N-Power applicants that they have been selected to benefit from #87,000 Federal relief fund.


This N-Power notification is fake, untrue, and unauthentic, Fraudsters out there are looking for innocent and gullible N-Power Batch C applicants to defraud of their little income.


All N-Power Batch C applicants are therefore advised to delete such message immediately in order not to fall victims of this crafty online scammers.

N-Power Batch C1: N-Power Batch C1 List Not Yet Sent To States

N-Power Focal Persons at individual States are yet to receive the list of N-Power Batch C Volunteers Stream 1, N-Power State Focal Persons have lamented the delay in the process of sending the list of N-Power Batch C Volunteers to the states from the Ministry for Humanitarian Affairs.


This delay would slow down the deployment of N-Power Batch C1 applicants to their respective places of primary assignment.


N-Power Batch C2 cannot commence yet until the whole shortlising process of N-Power Batch C1 has been completely finalized.


All congratulatory messages received by N-Power Batch C applicants, still remains at N-Power Batch C1, N-Power Batch C2 selection have not commenced yet.


N-Power Batch C Stream 2 Commences (Subject To Confirmation)

An N-Power Batch C applicant with the Facebook moniker Des Aries Kasi, claimed to be shortlisted earlier today for N-Power Batch C stream 2 (see attached screenshot) at the period of filing this report, this claim by the N-Power Batch C applicant remains unclear, although few weeks ago unconfirmed reports surfaced online about N-Power Batch C Stream 2 to be released today, 15th June 2021.


NPOWER BATCH C NEWS AND UPDATES




N-Power Batch C: Reason Why N-Power Independent Monitors Were Given Devices


Lots of N-Power Batch C applicants have been asking the question, why independent N-Power monitors were given devices while the N-Power Batch C applicants are yet to be given N-Power devices.


The reason why N-Power independent monitors were given devices is to monitor the N-Power Batch C Volunteers once N-Power Batch C Volunteers are assigned to their respective places of primary assignment.


This N-Power devices contains all the data of N-Power Batch C Volunteers, so all N-Power Batch C Volunteers should take note, you will be monitored, failure to be regular at your place of primary assignment, might put your payment on hold and subsequently disengage the particular N-Power Batch C Volunteer.

N-Power Batch C: Reason Why You Should Not Edit Your State & Local Government Area

Lots of N-Power Batch C applicants have been jumping into their N-Power NASIMS portal to quickly edit their state and local government area, this feat is a very risky thing to do by the N-Power Batch C applicants.


If an N-Power Batch C applicant have relocated to another state or local government area and the N-Power Batch C applicant is thinking of editing the N-Power NASIMS portal to the current state or local government area in which the N-Power Batch C applicant resides, to reflect on his or her  N-Power Nasims portal profile, the N-Power Batch C applicant should not do that if the N-Power Batch C applicant have been shortlisted.


Reason is that each of the local government areas was allocated and allotted a specific number of N-Power Batch C applicants shortlisted for the N-Power batch C program, effecting changes on NASIMS (N-POWER) profile now before deployment would alter the whole database arrangements and might lead to disqualification of the affected N-Power Batch C applicant.


N-Power Batch C applicants are thereby advised to exercise patience until the N-Power Batch C applicant have been deployed to his or her place of primary assignment (PPA) then the N-Power Batch C volunteer can contact the district human resources department, or the state focal person for a change of location rather than editing your N-Power NASIMS profile before deployment.

Reason Why N-Power Batch C Volunteers Will Be Paid ₦30,000 And Not ₦50,000

A lot of N-Power Batch C applicants have been asking the question on the specific amount of stipend this particular N-Power Batch C set will receive.


Many N-Power Batch C applicants have been asking the following questions below:


Are N-Power Batch C volunteers going to collect ₦30,000?


Are N-Power Batch C volunteers going to collect ₦50,000?


The answer to the first question is a big YES, all N-Power Batch C volunteers under the graduate component will receive ₦30,000.


While the answer to the second question is a big NO, all N-Power Batch C Volunteers will not be receiving ₦50,000.


A lot of N-Power Batch C Volunteers will ask the question, why? Yes all N-Power Batch C Volunteers will receive a stipend of ₦30,000, the reason is because, it was clearly stated in the attached video that independent N-Power monitors will receive a sum of ₦30,000 monthly stipend, these N-Power independent monitors are N-Power Volunteers as well, so if the independent N-Power monitors are being paid ₦30,000 N-Power monthly stipend, all other N-Power Batch C Volunteers will follow suit.


Therefore all N-Power Batch C applicants should have it at the back of their minds that the basic monthly stipend to be paid to N-Power Batch C Volunteers remains ₦30,000 and not ₦50,000 as earlier claimed by some N-Power Batch C applicants.

According to N-Power the SMS message received by N-Power Batch C applicant is valid, an N-Power Batch C applicant should complete his or her biometrics by logging into the N-Power NASIMS biometric enrollment portal using his or her N-Power ID and password, their are no documents required for the N-Power NASIMS biometric fingerprint capture enrollment process.




N-Power Batch C: Stream 2, No Official Date Yet

A whole lot of N-Power Batch C applicants who are yet to be shortlisted for the N-Power Batch C Stream 2 have been asking when exactly will the N-Power second batch commence, well the N-Power (NASIMS) customer care unit have clearly stated in a response to an email that there is no official date slated for the commencement of the N-Power stream 2.

See screenshot below from N-Power (NASIMS) as evidence


All N-Power Batch C applicants have been implored and advised to constantly check their email address and visit the N-Power (NASIMS) portal for updates.



N-Power Batch C: Stream 2 Will Start After Stream 1 Are Fully Onboarded

A lot of N-Power Batch C applicants especially the N-Power Batch C applicants that successfully passed the previous N-Power online test, have been asking lots of questions, most N-Power Batch C applicants have been asking when the N-Power Batch C Stream 2 will commence? Will there be N-Power Stream 2? I passed the N-Power online test, will I be shortlisted for N-Power stream 2?


The answer to the above question is a big YES, stream 2 is in existence and will start simultaneously as the N-Power stream 1 completes their enrollment process and onboarded.


According to the Minister in charge of N-Power, Honourable Sadiya Umar Farouq, the second batch of another 500,000 N-Power Batch C applicants will afterwards be made after the N-Power Batch C stream 1 applicants have fully completed their enrollment process and onboarded, this is in line with Mr President’s directive to engage 1,000,000 N-Power Batch C beneficiaries.


All an N-Power Batch C applicant needs to do is to frequently check his or her email address, for the congratulatory message, I repeat always check your email address, an N-Power applicant might see the "check back later" in his or her dashboard, but on checking his or her email find the congratulatory message, so the email is paramount at this juncture.


N-Power Batch C: How To Fix "Wrong Date Of Birth" Issue

Some N-Power Batch C applicants have been complaining about the wrong date of birth on their N-Power NASIMS portal, some N-Power batch c applicants after logging in noticed that the date of birth has been changed from either 03/04/XXXX to 04/03/XXXX and vice versa.


Please the date of birth is not a cause of concern for now, all N-Power Batch C applicants have been advised to keep checking their emails to determine if the N-Power Batch C applicant have been shortlisted or not.


Wrong date of birth will not disqualify an N-Power Batch C applicant, yes, one will say it is linked to the N-Power Batch C applicant's BVN, the only thing that can affect an N-Power Batch C applicant is his or her name, especially when it comes to payment of N-Power Batch C applicants, the date of birth does not affect payment, what an N-Power Batch C applicant should be concerned about now is his or her name, that is the name on your BVN must match the name on your profile, at least two names, for those N-Power Batch C applicants with three names.

N-Power Batch C: How To Know If You Have Been Shortlisted

The next stage of enrollment is the verification of email addresses by N-Power Batch C applicants.


All N-Power Batch C applicants are hereby advised to check their respective email addresses instead of going directly to the N-Power (NASIMS) portal of which an N-Power Batch C applicant might be having one or more issues login in.


All N-Power Batch C applicants, trying to access their N-Power dashboard and having the 'blank' verification page, should quickly check their email inbox, if an N-Power Batch C applicant is shortlisted the N-Power Batch C applicant will receive the congratulatory message with instructions on how to carry out the Biometrics.


So for now please all N-Power Batch C applicants should not waste their precious time trying to access the N-Power NASIMS portal but to always check their emails, this is the first step in the shortlising process it is called email verification, while the next stage is the biometric process, followed by deployment.


According to the Permanent Secretary Bashir Nura Alkali the next stage of enrollment is the verification of email addresses by applicants. Alkali therefore called on shortlisted applicants to check their respective email addresses for confirmation and for further information. He directed applicants to log into N-Power (NASIMS) portal to enrol their biometric data.

N-Power Batch C: How To Fix "Wrong Local Government" Issue

An N-Power Batch C applicant, that erroneously filled a wrong local government area can edit his or her local government area, by logging into his or her dashboard and altering the wrong local government area, replacing it with the correct local government area.


This should be done at this period by the N-Power Batch C applicant, because once deployment starts, there will be no form of alterations, as N-Power program hardly encourages inter-state nor inter-local government redeployment except the N-Power Batch C applicant wants to redeploy to a local government area within the same district.

N-Power Batch C Biometrics: No Deadline Yet

It has been observed that most N-Power Batch C applicants are confused over the closing date for the N-Power Batch C Biometrics enrollment, please no date has been announced yet as N-Power screening and shortlising is ongoing.


The memo released few days ago about the June 6th deadline concerns the N-Power Batch C applicants in Plateau State, and not a general statement.


All N-Power Batch C applicants have been advised to complete their N-Power NASIMS biometric fingerprint capture as soon as possible and ignore certain information flying over the internet, N-Power Batch C applicants have been advised to always visit the NASIMS N-Power Portal for general information.

N-Power Batch C: How To Fix "Change Of Score" On Portal

Quite a handful of N-Power Batch C applicants, have been faced with a change of score when the N-Power Batch C applicant logs into his or her NASIMS N-Power Portal, probably the N-Power Batch C applicant got a high score but on Login into his or her portal it was a lower score that was displayed.


Please do not retake the test as previous score is already stored in the NASIMS database, just leave it as it is, all N-Power batch c applicants have been advised at this moment that score really has no true significance in the N-Power shortlisting process, all N-Power batch c applicants have been advised to keep checking their emails or the verification tab on their N-Power NASIMS portal to determine if they have been selected.


N-Power Batch C Shortlist: Reason Why Applicants With Low Score Got Shortlisted

The reason why some N-Power applicants scored low but were selected was as a result of the N-Power Batch C applicant's geographical location/area.


If a local Government has a population that its number of N-Power Batch C applicants are less than say, 1000 N-Power Batch C applicants, even if an N-Power Batch C applicant scored 0% or 35% the N-Power Batch C applicant can still be shortlisted so as to balance the needed number of N-Power Batch C applicant that is expected to meet the required maximum needed in the N-Power programme.




If the population of an area is over say the specific number of 1000 N-Power Batch C applicant, in the local government area, only those who scored 70% to 100% will be shortlisted.




N-Power Batch C: How To Retrieve Your N-Power (NASIMS) ID For The Biometrics

Most N-Power Batch C applicants would require their N-Power (NASIMS) ID to sign in into the N-Power (NASIMS) Biometric Fingerprint Enrollment Portal.


If an N-Power Batch C applicant have forgotten to copy his or her NASIMS ID, the N-Power Batch C applicant should not fret.


Here is what to do, simply log-in to your NASIMS profile and copy your N-Power registration number that starts with NPWR/2020/ that is your NASIMS ID.

N-Power Batch C: N-Power Stream 2 To Commence Soon

So all N-Power Batch C applicants, that are yet to receive the congratulatory message, despite getting a high score should breathe a sigh of relief and exercise patience for the N-Power Stream 2 which will commence soon.








N-Power Batch C Payment/Duration: ₦30,000 or ₦50,000, 1 Year or 2 Years

Lots of N-Power Batch C applicants have been on the argument spree concerning the N-Power stipend to be paid to N-Power Batch C applicants as well as the duration of the N-Power Batch C program.


The N-Power Batch C Volunteers will be paid a sum of ₦30,000 monthly according to the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management & Social Development (see attached screenshot as evidence) and the duration of the graduate category of the N-Power Batch C program (N-Agro, N-Teach, & N-Health) will run for a year, while the non graduate component that is the N-creative, N-Build, & N-tech would run for 6 months.


Due to the experience of the previous N-Power Batch A and N-Power Batch B, anything can still happen, as the only constant thing in life is change, but for now all N-Power batch c applicants should have it at the back of their minds that the earlier statement made by the ministry regarding stipend and the duration of the N-Power Batch C program still stands.



N-Power Batch C: How To Fix " Missing Passport/Documents" Issue On The N-Power Portal

The missing passport/documents has nothing to do with you not being shortlisted, all N-Power batch c applicants have been advised to check their email or click on the verification tab on their N-Power portal to check the status of their enrollment.


N-Power Batch C applicants having the missing passport picture/documents issue should not attempt to upload the picture/document again, but leave it the way it is.



N-Power Batch C: Reasons Why Deployment Have Not Commenced Yet

Most N-Power Batch C applicants have often asked the following questions below:


When will N-Power deployment start?


When will deployment commence?


I have completed my N-Power (NASIMS) Biometric fingerprint enrollment what next? 


The following are reasons why deployment of N-Power Batch C applicants cannot commence yet:


1) The N-Power Batch C N-Power (NASIMS) Biometric fingerprint enrollment is ongoing, until a sizeable number of N-Power Batch C applicants complete the N-Power (NASIMS) biometric process before they can start talking about deployment to their primary places of assignment.


2) The N-Power Batch C screening and N-Power Batch C selection/shortlisting process is ongoing as more N-Power Batch C applicants keep receiving emails
