The National Social Investment Management Systems (NASIMS) recently issued a crucial instruction to all beneficiaries of the Federal Government Npower Programme. The instruction, disseminated through NASIMS’ official Facebook handle, advises beneficiaries not to update any details in the new NASIMS Self Service Portal (ssp.nasims.gov.ng). This article will delve into the reasons behind this instruction and shed light on the migration process to the new portal, aiming to provide clarity and reassurance to Npower beneficiaries.
1. NASIMS’ Efforts to Streamline Management
NASIMS, the body responsible for managing the National Social Investment Programme (NSIP), has been working diligently to enhance the program’s efficiency and streamline management. As part of this endeavor, NASIMS developed a fully-fledged Self Service Portal with new and improved features. This portal aims to provide beneficiaries with easy access to essential services and facilitate streamlined management of the various facets of the NSIP.
2. The Migration Process to the New Portal
The migration to the new NASIMS Self Service Portal was an important step to improve the overall user experience and ensure seamless access to services. However, this process generated some tension among beneficiaries due to certain challenges faced during the transition.
3. Challenges Faced by Beneficiaries
During the migration process, some beneficiaries encountered difficulties accessing the new portal. Additionally, a few users reported encountering muddled data when they were able to log in. These issues caused concern among beneficiaries, who were eager to utilize the new portal for their Npower Programme activities.
4. NASIMS’ Instruction: Do Not Update Your Profile
To address the challenges faced during the migration process, NASIMS issued a specific instruction to all beneficiaries. They were advised not to update any details in their NASIMS Self Service Portal profile. The reason behind this instruction is that the technical team at NASIMS is currently in the process of uploading all the beneficiaries’ data from the Abuja database.
5. What to Expect: Data Migration and Profile Updates
NASIMS assured beneficiaries that once the migration process is complete, all their previous data will be accurately reflected in their NASIMS SSP profile page. This means that any changes made by beneficiaries during the migration process might not be captured correctly, leading to potential discrepancies in their profiles.
6. Exercise Patience: Making the Portal Fully Functional
Understanding the concerns of beneficiaries, NASIMS urged them to exercise patience during the technical team’s efforts to conclude the migration process successfully. This is essential to ensure that the new portal functions seamlessly and provides a smooth user experience to all Npower beneficiaries.
In conclusion, the migration to the new NASIMS Self Service Portal is a crucial step in improving the National Social Investment Programme’s management and service delivery. To avoid any discrepancies in profile data, beneficiaries are advised not to update their profiles during the migration process.
