N-Power News: NASIMS Shortlist More Npower Batch C2 Beneficiaries
More Npower Batch C2 recipients are currently being enrolled by NASIMS.
Enrolling Npower Batch C2 Recipients
Selected candidates are receiving text messages from NASIMS for record verification and confirmation as it updates the database for Npower Batch C applicants. The SMS messages direct the candidates to verify their Npower records.
The text messages contain a link for validation and confirmation of preselection for the Npower Batch C2 program. To complete the validation process, candidates are required to enter their Npower ID, Bank Verification Number (BVN), National Identification Number (NIN), and bank account information provided during registration. It is crucial to ensure that all information provided is accurate, as edits or resubmissions are not possible.
Candidates are advised to verify the authenticity of the SMS messages and use the official NASIMS website or portal to authenticate them. In case the Npower ID is lost, it can be retrieved using the NASIMS Dashboard.
NASIMS is ready to provide guidance and support for any issues that may arise during the confirmation and validation process. This action by NASIMS contributes to the implementation of Nigeria’s social investment programs and benefits the Npower Batch C2 beneficiaries.
Npower Stipend Payment Progress
Despite recent administrative changes, NPower management remains committed to its beneficiaries. The previous administration has initiated the payment of unpaid stipends, and the current management is now responsible for processing and distributing the payments.
Beneficiaries of NPower Batch C are still owed stipends for October, November, and December of 2022. The management is actively working to eliminate these backlogs and ensure that recipients receive their rightful compensation.
Validation Link Updates: More Beneficiaries Receive Stipends
In addition to the 55,256 beneficiaries who have already been paid through the validation link, there are further testimonies of beneficiaries receiving their stipends. This progress is crucial in resolving payment concerns and demonstrates the commitment of NPower management to the program’s participants.
Government Transitions and the NPower Program
During times of government transitions, priorities and focus often shift. While the NPower program may not be in the spotlight at the moment, the new administration is taking proactive steps to improve the program. It is a period of transition and adaptation for NPower beneficiaries, but also a time of promise. Patience is key as program updates may not be immediate, but comprehensive updates will be provided in due course.
Update on Unpaid Stipends
Several outstanding stipends from January to May are still owed to beneficiaries. NPower management acknowledges these unpaid invoices and is diligently working to process and distribute them as soon as possible.
Batch C1 NPower participants will not receive the December stipend, as the Batch C1 program has concluded. However, the stipends for September, October, and November 2022 are still owed to Batch C1 beneficiaries.
For Batch C2 beneficiaries, the stipend payments for January through May have not yet begun. The payments will commence once the backlog payments from October, November, and December 2022 are completed.
It is important to note that the claim that the January to May stipends have already started being paid is false. The payment will initiate at the appropriate time, and beneficiaries are advised to stay informed through official channels.
Tracking Your Stipend Payment
Beneficiaries can now track their stipend payments through a new platform rather than relying solely on their NASIMS profile. It is recommended that beneficiaries regularly check their bank account balances to stay updated on the payments made and those still pending.
Current Status of Outstanding Stipend Payments
The process of clearing unpaid stipends is ongoing. Beneficiaries are encouraged to frequently monitor their bank accounts to stay informed about the status of their payments. NPower management is dedicated to ensuring that all beneficiaries receive their stipends in a timely manner.
Federal Government’s Funding for NPower Training and Programs
In related news, the federal government has approved N19.24 billion for various initiatives. This funding will be used for the training of 50,000 non-graduate NPower recipients and the installation of taxiway lighting systems at airports in Port Harcourt, Lagos, and Abuja.
Furthermore, the funding will support the development of the 10-story offices of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency in Victoria Island, Lagos state. It will also cover consulting services for the Dadin Kowa 40MW power plant.
These investments aim to enhance the implementation of the NPower scheme and other related programs. Updates on these developments and more can be found on arewafact.com.ng.
Tips for Ensuring Payment by NPower
To ensure a smooth payment experience as an NPower beneficiary, it is essential to understand the payment process and adhere to the program’s guidelines. Here are some tips to help you navigate the payment system successfully:
- Understanding the Payment Process: Familiarize yourself with how NPower processes and disburses payments. It is crucial to complete the assigned tasks to receive payment promptly.
- Empowering the Unemployed: NPower aims to provide jobless individuals with opportunities for skill development and financial security. By actively participating in the program, beneficiaries can enhance their employability and gain valuable experience.
- Qualification and Program Guidelines: Review and comply with the eligibility requirements, application procedures, and program updates provided by NPower. Following these guidelines increases your chances of success.
- Staying Informed: Stay updated on NPower’s regulations and developments. The program regularly shares important information and updates with beneficiaries. Being informed ensures compliance and helps avoid surprises or misunderstandings.
- Seeking Clarification: If you have any questions or concerns about the program, don’t hesitate to seek clarification from the NPower team. They are there to assist you and provide the necessary guidance for a hassle-free experience.
- Accurate Application Submission: Take your time when filling out the application to avoid errors. Rushing through the process increases the risk of mistakes, which could delay payment. Submitting multiple applications is strictly prohibited as each applicant is essential to the program.
- Importance of Bank Verification Number (BVN): Ensure that you provide your Bank Verification Number (BVN) accurately to NPower. Incorrect BVN information can hinder and complicate the payment process. It is crucial to provide the correct BVN to avoid any issues.

Working for Payment: NPower Stipend Payment
As an NPower beneficiary, it is essential to fully engage in the assigned tasks to receive remuneration. Participation in the program alone does not guarantee payment. Effort and commitment to the program’s rules are necessary to ensure timely payment.
These guidelines and tips will help you navigate the NPower payment process and maximize your chances of receiving your stipend on time. By understanding the program’s requirements, staying informed, and actively participating, you can make the most of your NPower experience.
