Statement from the NYSC Management in Abuja on Saturday: Management wishes to inform prospective NYSC Corps members that, based on the assurance received from the Federal Government regarding release of funds, the 2016 Batch ‘A’ (Stream II) Orientation course will start soon.
Date of commencement will soon be announced and Prospective Corps members are, therefore, requested to watch out for specific date of the exercise, which will be made public as soon as all necessary logistics for effective conduct of the orientation course are in place.
NYSC Management empathizes with the affected prospective Corps members, and appeals for continued patience even as all efforts on the matter are fast expedited.
Also, contrary to report on certain online and social media platform on the scraping of NYSC by the Federal Government, there is no official source for such information. Usually, since NYSC was establish through a decree of the Government in 1973, it would have to be terminated through a constitutional amendment from the National Assembly. Members of the public are advised to not believe any information concerning scraping or termination of National Youth Service Corps(NYSC) scheme.
