This is coming barely a day after the Director-General, of the Scheme, Brig.-Gen. Sulyman Kazaure, openly lamented to the Senate Committee on Sports in Abuja that the money required for the exercise was yet to be provided.

Kazaure had on Monday said, “We are presently at a loss in NYSC now as there is no money for us to mobilise thousands of prospective corps members in the Batch A Stream 2 to camp this Saturday.”

“This is in spite of efforts made by us to get things done in that direction several weeks ago.

“The problem staring us in the face arose from the N13 billion shortfall we had in the 2016 budget estimate which the agency made strong request for its provision during budget defence.”

However, in a statement issued on Tuesday, NYSC said the funds have now been released, adding that the programme scheduled for Saturday will go on as planned.

“As a reminder, all are to note that the Orientation Course will commence on Saturday, 21st May, 2016 and end on Monday, 6th June, 2016.

“Therefore, all prospective corps members are advised to print their call-up letters online or collect same from their respective institutions of graduation as applicable.

“They are to report to the orientation camps in their states of deployment whose addresses would be shown on their call-up letters.

“Management wishes all prospective Corps members a hitch-free and rewarding orientation course.”
