Concise News reports that in a tweet replying to a beneficiary’s query on the genuineness of some reports about release of device collection centres for Batch B volunteers, the scheme sues for patience.

Good day Npower, how true is the release of device collection centres for Batch B. I read an article where beneficiaries should go for device collection in all states.”

“Hi sir,

“Kindly wait for information from our verified handles on devices.”

Recall this online news medium did a fact-finding last week which revealed that no N-Power beneficiary has received SMS for detailed instruction on the venue and time for collection of their devices.

All N-Power beneficiaries are entitled to an electronic device which would be loaded with different applications that would further enhance the skills of the beneficiaries and afford them additional training opportunities during the duration of the programme.

The device grant is in conjunction with the Bank of Industry (BOI).

Each of the beneficiaries after being verified selects their choice device among multiple BOI pre-approved vendors. Read more here.
