The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC)which is in charge of deploying Nigerian graduates on a year program to serve their nation seems to be resuming operation after they were disturbed by the pandemic – just like every other organization in Nigeria.
They are resuming activities even though the reported cases of the pandemic increase on a daily basis and the curve is yet to flatten.
Recall that the Vice President of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Oshibajo advised that the NYSC Camp be suspended for at least two years while some institutions have been so affected that they are not ready to deploy corp members.
According to Today.ng, The National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, has commenced its online registration for prospective corps members.
The registration is for the Batch A orientation course. A check on NYSC’s official portal by newsmen showed that the registration process will run till 29 June 2020.
However, the scheme also warned prospective corps members against changing their date of birth.
In a series of tweets, NYSC warned that corps members can’t change their date of birth after service.
The tweets titled “IMPORTANT INFORMATION TO ALL PROSPECTIVE CORPS MEMBERS,” reads: “There shall be no correction of Date of Birth on Certificate of National Service (CNS) after completion of National Service.
“Accordingly, you are strongly advised to utilize the link provided on your dashboard for Date of Birth correction during your Online Registration.
“Also, note that NYSC will not entertain any request for Date of Birth correction once you have been deployed and commenced your Service Year.
“Online Registration is ongoing.”
Do you think it is right for the commission to start operating now, considering the fact that schools across the nation are yet to resume and the health risk?
