Avoid FAKE NEWS:
Please STOP believing FAKE NEWS. We have mentioned to you over and over again that news that don’t originate from our verified channels and blog like this one should NOT be believed.
Also, stop inputting your details on everything you see on the internet. It is dangerous.
We advised Nigerians, particularly beneficiaries of the N-Power Programme, to discountenance the ongoing fake social media messages about the scheme.
Mr Justice Bibiye, the Communications Officer, NSIO, in a statement to NAN on Thursday in Abuja, urged the beneficiaries to be circumspect
According to him, those fraudulent messages were put out to deceive unsuspecting individuals into applying for a fresh batch of N-Power volunteers or N-Power devices via fabricated links on social media.
The statement added that “Such messages are the handiwork of fraudsters who would stop at nothing in trying to rip innocent people of their hard-earned resources.
“We wish to state categorically that the Federal Government has yet to commence the distribution of devices to Batch B, N-Power beneficiaries.
According to him, “Indeed, the process has commenced and all beneficiaries would be duly informed via the N-Power website or other verified social media contacts of the NSIO like www.classicnewsngr.com and www.infonet247.com
