The National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, has yesterday urged the top echelons of the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC to reduce the N4000 it charges prospective corps members as online registration fee to N3000.
Daily Post reported that the national students union warned that on no account should any group either the NYSC Directorate, school management or the operators of the online system exploit the intending NYSC members under the present arrangement.
Speaking to reporters after meeting with management of the NYSC in Abuja, the NANS President, Comrade Tijani Usman promised that NANS would monitor the online policy to guarantee that it remains functional, effective and exploitation-free.
NANS who further showed their vote of support to the policy disclosed that “there is no need retaining the old Manual Call-Up system, since it is costly and risky. Consequently, the online system should be mandatory, but very effective.”
It would be recalled that the 2014 Batch A corps members carried out their Passing Out Parade (POP), successfully yesterday, Feb. 19.
