The Presidency on Tuesday said there was no truth in reports circulating especially in the social media that new N-Power applications are now being received on the N-Power portal.

It also disowned claims about an unauthorized request for vital personal information of beneficiaries on web portals not known to the Presidency or any arm of the Federal Government.

The Senior Special Assistant to the Acting President on Media and Publicity, Mr Laolu Akande, stated this in a statement made available to journalists.

Akande said, “Nigerians, especially beneficiaries and potential beneficiaries of the N-Power Volunteer Corps should ignore such reports emanating from fake sources and outlets and only relate with bonafide Presidency and FG sources and web portals.

“For the avoidance of doubt, legitimate communication about the N-Power is done through selection at npower.gov.ng or the relevant Focal Persons appointed by each of the 36 States and the FCT.

“Any information that does not emanate from this identified sources or directly from the Presidency should be simply and out rightly dismissed.

“In due time, we shall announce information regarding the Buhari administration’s plan to ramp up the number of N-Power beneficiaries from the current 200,000 to 350,000 under the 2017 budget proposals now before the National Assembly.”
