Update: NPower Recruitment Shortlist, 200,000 Applicants Shortlisted: Check Your Name Here

The Federal government of Nigeria began the N-Power initiative with the aim of creating jobs and empowering the unemployed Nigerian Youths.

The N-Power initiative would provide employment for up to 500,000 Nigerian youths (Graduates/Non-Graduates). It was strategically designed by the Federal Government of Nigeria to drastically reduce youth unemployment and provide jobs through entrepreneurship and innovation

According to Mr. Akande, candidates will first of all take a program specific test/assessment before the final selection is done.

Under this phase of assessment, applicants are to log in and fill in their phone numbers and surnames as contained in their original application, using their personal profile (which has been opened for every applicant).

In addition, all candidates will be notified by SMS of their assessment the day before. All assessments will include some personal questions and other questions testing basic knowledge of English, General Knowledge and Quantitative Reasoning.

Applicants will also be tested on other programme-specific questions depending on the programme they applied for.

Applicants can take their tests on a smart-phone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer provided that the devices have internet connection.

At the end of the on-going assessment/test exercise, 500,000 job seekers would be picked for the two-year volunteer positions available in the Npower programme.

According to the statement released, N-Power applicants can only gain access to their profile for assessment on the N-Power portal as represented in the schedule which breaks down applicants in batches by the first letter in their surnames.

If you try to log in on a date that is not for the programme you applied for and your surname, you will not be able to take the Npower recruitment test.

      Hello Bunu,

      Regardless of whether you get an acknowledgement letter or not, if you receive an SMS from the N-Power Recruitment Team, proceed to take your test on the N-Power Recruitment Assessment Portal.

      But if you don’t get an SMS from the N-Power Recruitment Team, there is nothing you can do about it as you’re login attempt would not be successful.

      Have a nice day Bunu.

  1. Susan says:

    can’t log in for the test. it kept saying invalid, but I got a text message from npower stating my test for 21/9/16, but my surname Begins with O. please help, what do I do

    • Raphael says:

      Hello Susan,

      You registered for the N-Power Teach programme, right?

      Since you received an SMS i’m still wondering why you’re unable to login.

      Here are some things you have to check:

      – Make sure the phone number you’re using to log in is the same as the one you used in registering and enter the phone number in this format 07032710711 and not +2347032710711

      – Make sure the name you’re using to login is your SURNAME and is the same as you used while registering, also ensure you enter it using small letters and not capital letters.

      If you have checked all this and the problem still persists, call the N-Power Recruitment Team on 08104000042, 07013000448, 08180000832, 08155000502.

      Have a nice day Susan.

    • Raphael says:

      Hello Uduak,

      Did you get a confirmation message for the N-Power Creative?

      In whatever case, you’ll receive an SMS before the test date, only those that receive the SMS would be able to write the test.

      Have a nice day Uduak.

      Hope for the best.


    I got the N-Power message about the online test. I try to log in since morning but their website couldn’t give me access to write my own test.

    • Raphael says:

      Hello Friday,

      What exactly do you mean by their website couldn’t give me access to write my own test?

      Is it that the website didn’t open at your end or that you were not able to login?

      Hoping to get your response soon.

      Have a nice day Friday.

    • Raphael says:

      Hello Funmilayo,

    • Raphael says:

      Hello Comfort,

      You obviously did not read through the schedule, because if you did you would know that only those that have received an SMS are supposed to login and take the test and the date for the N-Power Teach Assessment for people whose surnames start with ‘S’ is 28th September.

      Have a nice day Comfort.

    • Raphael says:

      A msg was sent to me on Monday that my test is on Tuesday but I was unable to log in, but I log in today and I was able to the test, I want to know if I am disqualified because my surname start with letter o

      • Raphael says:

        Hello Tosin,

        I’m glad you were able to take the test. Indeed the test date for N-Power teach for people whose surnames start with ‘O’ is 24th September, so i do not see any reason why you should be disqualified.

        Have a nice day Tosin.


  8. Abel says:

    My test date is on the 24th because my surname starts with o, but I have not received any sms and it’s already 5:pm, what can I do? To make matters worse the dedicated numbers are not responding thanks.

    • Raphael says:

      Hello Abel,

      There’s little or nothing you can do about that as only those who received an SMS from the recruitment team would be able to login successfully.

      Have a nice day Abel.

  9. yemi says:

    A msg was sent to me dat I will be writing my test on Tuesday, but I was unable to log in stating invalid login, meanwhile my surname starts from o, unknowingly to me, npower has change my surname to letter y using my last name, but I was able to login today using letter y and I was able to do the tests successfully, am I disqualify?

    • Raphael says:

      Hello Yemi,

      N-Power would not change your surname. I guess you were not careful while registering and that’s where you must have mixed up the names.

      Well, i’m glad you were able to login and take the test.

      it is not in my place to tell whether or not you have been disqualified, keep hoping for the best.

      Have a nice day Yemi.

    • Raphael says:


      Are you now blaming it on the internet connection?

      Knowing how important this is/was to you, should should have used a more reliable internet connection.

      Anyways, i can;t tell your fate.

      Hope for the best.

      Have a nice day.

  13. Umar Mohammed says:

    • Raphael says:

      Hello Umar,

      You don’t know the actual programme where your name is or you don’t know the actual programme you registered for?

      Anyways, there’s no how you can take the test if you don’t receive an SMS from the recruitment team.

      Have a nice day Umar.

  14. Ologun Temitope Michael says:

    I received sms for the npower teaching test on 25th September, 2016 at exactly 10:54 pm and I try everything possible to log in and do my test immediately but I could not get access into the site. I later found out the test should have taken place on 24th September,2016 because my surname started with O but I received SMS alert on 25 instead of a day before my test. Pls what can I do?

    • Raphael says:

      Hello Michael,

      Sorry about your situation.

      The problem some candidates have is that they were careless in the registration process and filled their first names or middle names where their surname was supposed to be.

      This might not have been too different from your case Michael as letter ‘M’ had their test on the 25th.

      However, this might also not be the exact case. I advice that you keep trying as some people have been lucky enough to write the test even after their scheduled date.

      You can also call the N-Power hotlines on: 08104000042, 07013000448, 08180000832, 08155000502

      Have a nice day Michael.

  16. Nwaka says:

    My surname started with N d test was taken on 25th which was on a sunday bt I received text on 27th Sept. Even when I tried to login with my other name that began with c on that 27th it was stil invalid.

    • Raphael says:

      Hello Nwaka,

      N-Power would not send you an SMS on the wrong date, you must have mixed up your names in the registration process.

      I cannot tell why you were unable to login on the said date, have you tried to login again since after then?

      You can visit the N-Power portal and use the contact phone numbers and e-mail address to make your complaint known.

      Have a nice day Nwaka.
