NPower 2017: Pre-selected candidates begin verification in Imo | IMO STATE GOVERNMENT

Candidates who applied for the 2017 N-Power programme and were pre-selected, have commenced physical verification in Imo State.
Physical verification is a critical component in onboarding selected beneficiaries who have been notified of their selection status into the N-Power programme. The essence is to ascertain candidates’ age, gender, current residential address and Local Government Area, academic qualification, NYSC discharge status, employment status and disability status.
The exercise was monitored in the state by a team led by the Deputy Director of National Orientation Agency, Mr Nazi Njoku. Other members of the team are Felix Obioha – NPower official from Abuja and the representative of the State Focal Person, Stanley Okehie.
In Owerri Municipal Council secretariat where the exercise is taking place for pre-selected applicants resident in the state, candidates were falling over themselves in an attempt to be verified first. It took the concerted efforts of officers of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) and N-Power officials monitoring the exercise to maintain orderliness.
The Community Mobilization Officer (COMO), Mrs Nkechi Ogazi while briefing the monitoring team members, expressed happiness over the large turnout of candidates and regretted her inability to control the surging crowd.
Verification officers comprising of four beneficiaries of the programme in 2016, were dutifully scrutinizing the documents of each pre-selected candidate, which they said, is the first step in the verification exercise.
In Owerri North Local Government Council, the story is not different as candidates gathered in a very rowdy session waiting for turns.
A pre-selected candidate in the area, simply identified as Victor, said he was hopeful of receiving his December stipend once he scaled through the physical verification stage.
Recall that a total of 60,283 candidates applied from Imo state out of which 9,497 were pre-selected.
