applications on the 13th of June.

Applications received were 403% more than the Graduate
applications received in 2016. As at the time, the application process closed
in July 27th, 2017, 2,543,079 people had applied for the N-Power Graduate
Programmes. In 2017, N-Power is committed to improving on the lessons learnt in
2016. To avoid some payment issues that plague(d) the 2016 beneficiaries, the
BVN validation stage was introduced.
Here, applicants whose names didnt match their BVN were
precluded from proceeding to the Assessment Test phase stage. 2,258,266 people
scaled through the BVN validation stage.
They were consequently invited to proceed to the Assessment
Test Phase. 1,746, 454 people honoured that invitation. In selecting the
300,000, we took the following into consideration
  1. BVN Validation and Online Assessment
  2. Achieving equity
  3. Linking selection to population using Federal Constituencies
  4. Addressing Demand Distribution of Unemployed Graduates
  5. Taking into account, Deployment/Utilization issues from 2016
  6. Correcting Deployment/Utilization challenges among 2016
    N-Power beneficiaries

    Rural Areas especially N-Agro applicants

    pre-selected for the physical verification stage.
