The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has assured that all eligible prospective corps members (PCMs) for the 2016 Batch ‘B’ service year will be mobilised.
This assurance was given by the Director-General of the NYSC, Brigadier General Sulaiman Kazaure, on Thursday, when he met with a delegation of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), at the NYSC headquarters, in Abuja.
Kazaure explained that proactive efforts were being made to ensure that all prospective Corps members, eligible for the 2016 Batch ‘B’ service year, were mobilised.
According to the DG, as part of measures to facilitate the mobilisation process, all Corps Producing Institutions, have been requested to upload full list of their Senate – approved prospective corps members to the NYSC portal.
He appealed to the students’ umbrella body to cooperate with the scheme in its genuine efforts to resolve all issues relating to hitch-free mobilisation of prospective corps members for the 2016 Batch ‘B’ service year.
This is coming on the back of rumours that only 86, 000 would be mobilised for the 2016 Batch B Orientation, from the massive backlog on queue for the national assignment.
The rumours had blamed the truncation to financial constraints occasioned by recession.
