The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has advised prospective Corps members to always give correct information on their states of health while registering for mobilization into the Scheme.

He explained that the essence of making provision for information on health status in the NYSC online registration process was to allow deployment of those with special health needs to their home states or locations of health facilities where they were receiving care.

Kazaure noted, however, that many prospective Corps members deliberately concealed their illnesses while registering on the platform.
