Nigeria on Sunday assured that N-Power portal is intact and not hacked, thereby debunking earlier reports that hackers had access to its files and other documents, including account and BVN numbers of beneficiaries.
This was clarified on Sunday night by the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, through a statement by the Deputy Director Information, Rhoda Iliya.
She said, -“Over 1,000,000 applications have been received from across the Federation in less than 48 hours after the Honourable Minister, Sadiya Umar Farouq declared open the new N-Power Portal on the Ministry’s website.”
It called 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 which it said, “would be very focused on agriculture.”
“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.”
