There is tension among some workers in both private and government organisations over an alleged probe of the N-Power scheme. Concise News understands that some of these workers are on the payroll of N-Power, a scheme meant for unemployed graduates in teaching, agriculture et al. Some of the workers who are getting the N30,000 monthly stipend from the scheme are employees of the Police Force, Road Safety, Civil Defence, Doctors and Health workers, State and Local Government workers among others. They were detected via their Bank Verification Number (BVN) with thousands of persons involved in the illegal act. “According to information reaching us, there are a lot of workers involved and the information is authentic,” a source told News Direct. We have report that federal government workers collecting stipend belong to unemployed graduates. We have police that are also involved. Interestedly, we have people in private companies that are also benefitting from Npower which the programme is not meant for.” Read more here.

The Tweet reads: “Dear N-Power Beneficiaries, Please disregard news about a product called N-Power Moni. This is NOT from the Federal Government or the National Social Investment Programme Office. Any news or links NOT shared by our verified social media handles should be deemed as FALSE.” Read more here.
