Nigerians react as Osinbajo extends N-Power registration by 2 weeks.

- Nigerians have reacted strongly to the extension of N-Power registration

- While some applauded the extension, others condemned it 

- Some urged the FG to give consideration to those disqualified as a result of BVN related i      issues in their applications 

The recent 2 weeks extension given by acting President Yemi Osinbajo to the registration window of the N-Power social intervention programme of the federal government has attracted mixed reactions from Nigerians and candidates alike. While some welcome the development, others criticized the extension, claiming that the federal government ought to have increased the numbers of candidates to be employed since the FG only planned to employ 300,000 out of the over 2 million candidates who had already registered.

Many are also of the opinion that the federal government should have made provision for those who were summarily disqualified as a result of the arrangement of BVN names against that of their N-Power registrations. 

N-Power had earlier given information that those whose BVN names does not exactly match that of their registration in terms of arrangement even if the name combinations are same will be asked to end their application through sms.

Consequently, candidates who faulted the 'gestapo' style of the N-Power in disqualifying them even though the celebrated government scheme failed to provide an avenue for correction of candidates' information on their portal want a second chance for them in the new registration window of grace or better, a chance to make the necessary corrections in their applications.

Osinbajo also extended the registration for the scheme by two extra weeks to allow more Nigerians come in. With this, the application portal will now close on July 27. The scheme was initiated by the government of President Muhammadu Buhari to reduce the number of unemployed Nigerians in the country.

It started in the early  hours of the day, around 7:36am when the previous day birthday celebrant (Ganiyu  Olamide) picture  on the group page was changed.  Lovers of the celebrants reacted and the whole  shenanigans  started on the last day of the semester. According  to a class member, he was expecting  to see messages  like farewell, journey mercy, love you, missing you already, my kiss kiss, my uncrushable candy and crush able strawberry but felt so sad reading messages  full of curses and abuses.  After so many appalling messages, one of the administrator removed everyone on the class page and shut it down.  What is the reaction of the class Governor, Deputy Governor, Class monitor, and other Elder statemen?????

Writing One Paper Is Not The Board Standard, so students should prepare for two papers per day -Pelumi Oyelami

Mr Oyelami when meeting with  the members of the  Press club, advised the students  to go and read for their examinations  and stop  being  lazy.

Students are here to read irrespective  of the arrangement  of the timetable, they should  go and read,  come to  the examination  centre and pass.

Writing two papers per day is a form  of training, writing  one paper is not the standard  with the board,so students should prepare  for two.

When the board releases their timetable, the school does not complain,  and the students  read their books, face the exam and they pass so why will they be forming  lazy in the school.  We will  maintain  the appropriate  standard  in this school.

Notwithstanding  steps has been  taking on the correction  of the examination  timetable of 200level students. It is with the Head of school to decide,i have done my part as the Academic  affair  Officer.
