N-power Physical Verification toughens as Sadiya ensures closure of all loop-holes

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

Initially, the Physical Verification of the N-power Beneficiaries were 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  (LIs) to undertake the screenining 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 wether 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 beneficiaries be delisted for failing the Physical Verification? 

Starting with the later, yes a beneficiary who fails the Physical Verification can lose the Programme completely. With 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 wether 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.
