The President Muhammadu Buhari youth employment scheme known as N-Power has said that the assessment test for all applicants will begin tomorrow, July 1st, 2017.
This was made public few minutes ago on the scheme’s Twitter handle @npower_ng. Assessment Tests will begin on the 1st of July, 2017.This is even as the scheme in series of tweets earlier today explained that submission of an application does not conclude the process.
The N-Power portal reopened for registration on Tuesday June 13, 2017. The application, which has steps to be followed, ends on July 13th 2017.
The clarification might be in response to the perception of those who believe their entry for the programme guarantees a placement.
N-Power tweeted “To avoid some of the issues of the 2016 applications, 2017 applicants will have to go through the process listed below. (i.e aside application and BVN validation, applicants will go through Test, Pre-Selection, Physical Verification, Selection, Deployment)
“Only applicants whose BVN records match their applications will move to the assessment stage.
“It is very important that 2017 applicants stay tuned to our social media channels for updates.”
The N-Power Volunteer Corps is part of the Federal government’s Social Investment Programmes, under which it plans to hire 350,000 unemployed graduates.
