During Physical verification, the authenticity of Documents such as Means of Identification, Residential LGA/Address, Academic Certificates, NYSC Discharge Certificate are sighted and verified. 

You will be required to provide Originals of the above for "sighting" and submit Photocopies in an Office file with 2 Passports Photographs attached to the Officers.

It will be conducted by accredited Officers from the State NSIP Offices and National Orientation Agency.

How Deployment is done

The successful 500,000 stream 1 N-power Beneficiaries will be deployed to their PPA (Place of Primary Assignment) specifically in their States and Local Goverments of Residence.

Those in N-Teach will be deployed to Government Primary and Secondary Schools within their Local Governments of Residence and will be under the State Ministry of Education and their bodies.

Those in N-Health will be deployed to Government Health Facilities/Centers in their Local Governments of Residence, under the State Ministry of Health.

NSIP Offices will dispatch to all concerned State Ministries. The Ministries will mandate all the Heads of PPAs (Head Masters, Principals, OICs, HODs/Zonal Cordinators) to accept each N-power Beneficiary deployed to their Schools, Facilities or Agricultural Zones.
