The source goes ahead to break down how over N1.8 trillion came to be: that over N720 billion was donated from Singapore while N794 billion was donated from the USA and N300 billion was donated from Australia.

What you should know About TELPECON – Scam or Real Grant?

  1. The Less Privileged Empowerment Coordinators Network (TELPECON) claims to be registered with CAC but a simple public search on the CAC website shows no company or business with that name. I’m pretty sure a check for the EFCC certificate will also come up empty.
  2. The supposed grant doesn’t even have a website, a google search of the company or business shows results of two Facebook pages “TELPECON GRANT DISBURSEMENT” & “TELPECON GRANT & DISBURSEMENT”. A look into both Facebook pages shows that they are both used to disseminate misinformation and disinformation (fake news).
  3. This so-called group of NGOs that formed The Less Privileged Empowerment Coordinators Network (TELPECON) claims to have 44 million members but there is nothing that suggests that this is true.
  4. A Nairaland thread on TELPECON shows that some people even paid to apply for this grant since 2020 but nothing has come of it and we’re now in 2022. Some bad actors even continue to raise people’s hope that the grant will be disbursed soon but by now you should know this is a big scam.

Does Telpecon give scholarships?

Telpecon does not give scholarships. But instead, they provide grants to deserving students who have the potential to become successful in life and contribute their quota to the development of Nigeria. There are different gifts, like total tuition fee grants, books and materials grants, living allowance grants, etc.
