The statement noted that anyone posing as desk officers and charging recipients N200 and N500 each for signing or stamping their deployment letters will be arrested and handed over to the relevant authorities for prosecution.
The statement reads in part as follows: “This is to inform all recipients of N-Power Batch C, Stream II that there is NO charge or fee attached for signing and stamping Letters of deployment !
“N-Power Kogi State Office wishes to disassociate itself from ANYONE posing as office agents and charging recipients N200 and N500 each to sign or stamp their deployment letters.
“We have repeatedly warned that NPower registration, online testing, physical checks and deployments are completely free, so grantees are advised to report anyone asking for money or a fee to sign their letters under the guise of office workers or any identity as a member of staff.
