The Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development has described as “fake news”, a link claiming Nigerians can claim N-Power Trust Funds Grant.
The Ministry via its verified Twitter handle on Friday stated that the website, fmhds.gov.ng.claim-It.online is spurious.
The ministry of humanitarian affairs oversees the social investment programmes of Nigeria, including N-Power.
You might have come across this dishonest, but promising ad on the internet recently.
AllNews understands that the post about this purported N-Power Trust Funds Grant has been shared multiple times since publication.
It quickly went viral, particularly on WhatsApp. It links to a basic web page.
It then asks for the user’s name and phone number.
The “N-Power Trust Funds Grant” web page is suspicious for several reasons.
If the page is left open in a browser for a few minutes, it redirects to dodgy websites.
There is no record of such a grant scheme on relevant Nigerian government websites. AllNews went through the ministry websites for finance, humanitarian affairs, information and culture and more, and found nothing.
The so-called N-Power Trust Funds Grant is a scam, as is the website.
