On Sunday, June 28, reports had emerged on the internet stating that the portal (npower.fmhds.gov.ng) of the N-Power, a youth empowerment initiative sponsored by the Federal Government of Nigeria, has been hacked and applicants Bank Verification Number (BVN) exposed.
However, the N-Power has denied this report via its Twitter handle while responding to an applicant inquiry.
The applicant asked: “Is it true that the site has been hacked ??? And our bvn exposed ???”
N-Power responded saying: “No sir. It is false information.”
No sir. It is false information. https://t.co/E0GYxDFZ8X
