The Nigerian government reacted to reports making the round that the N-Power website portal had been hacked, saying there is not truth in the reports.
According to the government, the portal was not only secured but also that it had not been compromised in any way.
“The Ministry will like to assure Nigerians that the N-Power portal is secured and no data has been compromised,” it said, adding: “The portal is open for Nigerians who meet the application criteria.”
Meanwhile, over one million applications were received from intending N-Power enrollees across the country in less than 48 hours, according to the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development.
The government calls on all young Nigerians between the ages of 18 and 35 with or without formal education to apply for a slot in the new programme.
