The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) expresses sorry for the mix-up in the reporting date for the 2015 Batch ‘A’ Orientation Course in respect of the corps members deployed to Benue State.
Apparently, Benue state’s orientation camp, like in some other states has been planned to take place in two streams with the Stream I scheduled to take place from 5th to 25th May 2015 and Stream II to hold from 2nd to 22nd June 2015.
However, Corpers posted for the Stream II exercise reported at the Camp between 5th and 6th May 2015 as against their scheduled date of 2nd June due to error on their call-up letters.
In a statement signed by the NYSC, Director of Press, Mrs. Bosede Aderibigbe in Abuja, she said the scheme had paid financial expenses the mix-up might have caused to the affected prospective corps members to enable them travel back to their homes and return to camp on 2 June.
The statement reads in part; “Consequently, all the affected prospective Corps members originally scheduled to participate in the Stream II of the on-going Orientation course in Benue State have been paid their transport fare to and fro the orientation camp in line with their entitlements in the present circumstance.
The NYSC management further urged corps members not to worry about the camp arrangement, as it would not affect their passing-out date.
