Registration Is Free! – NPower Warns Applicants




NPower, the Muhammadu Buhari-led government social empowerment scheme, has warned applicants against fraudsters. 

In a statement on its Twitter handle on Sunday, Npower asked intending applicants not to make payment to anyone as registration for the scheme is totally free.

NPower also warned applicants not to give their details over the phone to anyone or input them on any link and share with strangers.

“Dear Applicants, Please note that NO Ministry/NPower Official will call you to request for your details.

“Do NOT give your details over the phone to anyone, input them on any link and share them with strangers.

“Do NOT also make payment to anyone. Application is FREE,” NPower stated.

Social media was awash on Sunday with reports that the Npower site had been hacked and applicants’ details were no longer safe.

But the scheme swiftly debunked such reports, assuring applicants that its site was very safe and has not been hacked.
