The Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs has warned members of the public to disregard a trending post claiming the Batch C Npower recruitment list has been released.
The Ministry also debunked another post claiming some people have been shortlisted for a programme called Npower Trust Funds Grant.
Both claims were debunked in a tweet on Friday morning from the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development under which the Npower scheme is domiciled.
The tweet labeled both news as fake and simply wrote: “Please disregard #FakeNews.”

However, some people who reacted to the tweet noted that the delay in releasing the official list of Batch C beneficiaries by the government is what is giving scammers the chance to carry out such activities.
They, therefore, urged the federal government to expedite action, conclude the process and release the official list for Batch C Npower beneficiaries.
This is bound to happen when you are not fast in whatever decision your ministry intend to take. This batch A, B, C issue has been lingering for so long so follow your various update to letter and not just SOON all the time
