Due to the recent controversies in the genuity of the news circulating on social media concerning the posting of Npower 2017 volunteers, we have decided to update you on the recent happenings regarding the Npower posting and issuance of deployment letter of each state.
According to the report we received, two states has currently started issuing deployment letter to successfully verified volunteers. This volunteers are expected to report to where they have been posted to with immediate effect.
Ekiti State Npower Posting List 2018: We have received reports that Ekiti State is currently deploying the 2017 Npower Nteach volunteers to their places of primary assignment. In a text message currently being sent to Ekiti State 2017 Npower volunteers they are required to converge at Government House Pavilion on Tuesday 16th January, 2018 to collect their deployment letter. See the text message below:
“Ado LG N power verified candidates to converge at govt house pavilion on Tues 16/1/ 2018 to collect their deployment letter come with birth or NYSC cert. 10am”
Abia State Npower Posting List 2018: We have also received information that Abi state has commenced the deployment of volunteers. This is the sample of the posting/deployment letter.
As at the time of writing this article, there is no final selection list, Npower only released Preselection list and therefore it is illegal for states to deploy Preselected volunteers. The focal persons involved have been contacted and as such the exercise is stopped with immediate effect.
According to a statement released by the Npower team on their social media channel no State have been ordered to deploy 2017 volunteers. The statement reads:
It has come to our attention that some states have been awarding posting letters to N-Power pre-selected applicants.
LET US BE VERY CLEAR
At this point, there are ONLY Pre-Selected applicants, we shall announce and release the names of the FINAL SELECTED BENEFICIARIES when we have finished reviewing the returns of the Physical Verification compilations.
States can ONLY deploy Final Selected Beneficiaries.
We will assume that States who are currently deploying PRE-SELECTED APPLICANTS are expanding their charity base as we currently have NO ENGAGEMENT with these pre-selected applicants until we have announced and communicated same.
We are currently reviewing the returns of the Physical Verification compilations and we shall communicate progress and next steps on our Social Media Channels.
