Just as the federal government yesterday kicked off physical verification exercise at all the 774 Local Government Areas, the federal government has warned against either giving or taking bribe to disrupt due process.

The Physical Verification stage is the process of physically verifying the Age, Gender, Residential Address and LGA, Academic Qualification, and NYSC completion of applicants.

In a notice released on Monday, government said “At the Residential Local Government Area; Do not pay money for anything to anyone. The N-Power Physical Verification exercise is free; Do not give anyone your BVN slip even if they request for it. Please tell them N-Power says NO; Report anyone asking for money”.

Government also enjoined N-Power officials to also report any applicant giving money, saying “If you are certain you were pre-selected and don’t see your name at a particular LGA of residence, check other LGA’s you might have written down; Disregard anyone who approaches you that they can help you make it to the final selection, they are lying and will scam you”.

The notice also advised participants that “After you have concluded the Physical Verification Exercise, stay tuned to our N-Power social media channels for next steps”.
