NPower: How Registration Centres Extort Applicants




Some registration centres have taken advantage of the ongoing Npower scheme to defraud applicants seeking to apply for the empowerment programme.

Residents of Abakaliki, Ebonyi State, have lamented the fraudulent extortion of candidates by vendors who try to help them register for the NPower

A victim told Daily Post on Friday that she was charged five thousand naira (N5000) for NPower registration only.

According to lady, after the registration, she was equally asked to pay another one thousand five hundred naira for a printout.

It was gathered that some of the victims after paying the charges do not receive messages to show that the registration was submitted successfully.

Naija News reports that the federal government have continuously warned Nigerians against paying to register for the Npower programme.
