N-power Physical Verification toughens as Sadiya ensures closure of all loopholes.

N-power Physical Verification

The Screening of the beneficiaries of the 2020/2021 Batch C N-power program is one of its kind since the inception of the Programme in 2016.

Initially, the Physical Verification of the N-power Beneficiaries was conducted collaboratively by Officials of the National Orientation Agency  (NOA) and the Officials of the State N-SIP Offices.

However, the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development headed by HM Sadiya Umar Farouk has on Saturday, in an official update, disclosed that it has appointed NYSC Local Government Inspectors  (Los) to undertake the screening of the 510,000 successful beneficiaries of the N-power Programme.

The argument which has rumbled in the minds of the N-power beneficiaries is whether any of the Beneficiaries can be delisted for failing the Physical Verification.

This question might have arisen because the Physical Verification should have been a part of other screenings before the final shortlisting of the successful N-power Beneficiaries, as it was done earlier before 2021.

So the question continued: Why the Physical Verification? Of what importance is the Physical Verification? Can a beneficiary be delisted for failing the Physical Verification? 

Starting with the latter, yes a beneficiary who fails the Physical Verification can lose the Programme completelyWith the present arrangement, the decision will be tougher than can be subdued through shady appeasement.

One can fail the Physical Verification by possessing forged documents, not possessing NYSC Discharge Certificate as a Graduate, being a currently serving Corps Member, or not possessing the valid documents required for each category.

Again, the persistence of the Ministry to conduct the Physical Verification shows that sighting of the beneficiaries documents is essential and it can be used to make decisions on whether a beneficiary is suited for the Programme or not, even though he/she has been enlisted among the successful N-power Beneficiaries.

This motivated the deactivation of the Posting Letter download, pending when the Physical Verification has been concluded.
