Npower Preselection List 2017 Update –

If you are reading this article it means you are an NPower 2017 applicant or already an NPower beneficiary from 2016 batch. In this article I will be discussing all you need to know about Npower 2017 Preselection list. I will try to be brief and highlight the important points you have to note.

Firstly What is Npower Preselection List 2017?

Npower Preselection List is the list of Npower applicants that were successful in the assessment test conducted by the Npower Team which was concluded on August 31. This was an online test which is compulsory for all applicants who applied for the Federal Government Empowerment Program (Npower) for the various programs such as N-Teach, N-Health, N-Agro and N-Tax. Applicants that were successful in the assessment test will be shortlisted for the next stage of the Npower recruitment process which is the physical verification; this is the Preselection list. The Npower Preselection List will be released on Monday 20th November, 2017 by 11:30pm. All applicants will be required to log in to the Npower portal to check if they have been selected.

Criteria For Npower Preselection List 2017

One of the major fact about the Preselection process is that only volunteers who were successful in the assessment test stage will be selected. So if you did not attempt the assessment test, you should not expect to be selected.

RECOMMENDED - Federal Civil Service Commission of (FCSC)  Recruitment December 2017

Another factor which will be considered is the location of applicants. Recall that during the 2016 selection, it was not based on the location of applicants, this resulted in recruiting too many volunteers in the urban areas leaving the rural and interior parts understaffed. This has led the Npower Team to consider the location of applicants for the Preselection stage so as to fill this spaces. This means that applicants from the rural areas of the country are likely to have a greater possibility of being selected.

Apart from this criterion there are no other known criteria that will be used though the selection will not be an easy one where there are over 2.5 million applicants competing for only 300,000 slots. We hope the transparency the program witnessed in the selection of 2016 Volunteers will be repeated so as to keep to the aims and objectives of the program. I must also let you know that you don’t have to give anyone money or know someone in the political sector to be selected. For all i know, the 2017 preselection process will be free, fare and transparent.

Applicants who will be Preselected will be required to go for physical verification. In this stage, applicants will be required to go for physical verification of their certificates and other credentials. In my previous article, I highlighted the requirements for Npower Physical verification exercise 2017 (See article here). The centres for the Npower 2017 physical verification will be communicated to you by first week of October. Applicants who do not have the required qualifications will be disqualified and their application journey has come to an end.


Kindly disregard any information claiming that the Npower Preselection list for 2017 applicants have been released. There is no Preselection list yet. When the list is released it will be communicated to you via this website or through Npower social media channels and you will be able to check your name on Npower official website

What Will Happen After I Have Been Physically Verified?

After the physical verification exercise, applicants whose credentials matches their application and are qualified will shortlisted. This applicants will be required to log in to there Npower portal on to fill in their Bank Account Details, upload a passport photograph and a valid identity card. Then applicants will be deployed to the place of primary assignment and will start receiving their Npower Stipend and scheduled for device collection. We hope you will make it this this far.
