Senate President, Ahmed Lawan has responded to rumors on social media that he has been allocated 500 slots in the Batch C N-Power recruitment being carried out by the Ministry of Humanitarian and Disaster Management.
Several reports had appeared online during the week alleging that the Senate President alongside some Senators have been allocated some amounts of slots for the N-Power Scheme.
Hon. Ahmed Lawan however refuted the rumors in a statement through his special adviser on Media and Publicity, Ola Awoniyi saying he has nothing to do with the recruitment process of the special investment programme.
“The attention of the Office of the Senate President has been drawn to a publication on the Sahara Reporters portal purporting that the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management allocated N-Power recruitment slots to the Senate President and other lawmakers,” the statement said.
“We hereby advise members of the public to totally disregard the fake and malicious publication in its entirety as regards the Senate President.
“It should be noted that the fairy tale only blandly and obliquely claimed that some lawmakers printed out application forms from the portal of the scheme but failed to provide any evidence that this was to fill its speculated allocated slots.
“We wish to stress that neither the Senate President nor this office has anything to do with the purported slots mischievously credited by the publication to the Senate President.”
