The applicants of the popular N-power programme complains bitterly about N-power portal, they complained that the portal denies them access to write their quizzes that are ongoing.
Many of the applicants narrated that during the application, they were asked by the portal to use their Bank Verification Numbers (BVN), first name , Last name, middle name, date of birth etc (as on the BVN) to register which they did. After the registration closes the portal could no longer recognize them as applicants, instead, it displays “ Invalid BVN” on the screen.
The applicants expresses fairs that if nothing is done by the authorities concern, many potential beneficiaries from Yola and Adamawa will not benefit from the programme.
When contacted by phone, the authorities concerned (N-power) said that the case of “Invalid BVN” is simply a situation where applicant’s supplied data that does not exist in his/her BVN during the N-power application process. However, many of the applicants insisted that the data they used are as correct and accurate as the data on their BVNs.
