Only eligible graduates who pass through duly accredited full-time courses from higher institutions, would be mobilised for participation in the forthcoming 2013 Batch ‘A’ scheme, the National Youth Service Corps said on Wednesday. The camp is scheduled for between March 6 and 26.
According to the Director-General of the NYSC, Brig. General Nnamdi Okorie-Affia, the only criteria for mobilization henceforth is for the admission status of any prospective corps member be known to JAMB. He also said the NYSC has started collaborating with the National Universities Commission and other relevant regulatory organisations of corps producing institutions.
The NYSC Director further said all data of all prospective corps members submitted for mobilisation by their respective institutions would be screened thoroughly.
“In this regard, all prospective corps members whose admissions are not known to JAMB will be deemed to be improperly admitted. The admission status of such students will require the affected CPIs to regularise same with JAMB. Similarly, all CPIs have been advised to abide by the extant admission quota approved by the NUC and NBTE respectively in making submission for mobilisation.
“Any submission in excess of quotas approved will not be accepted. Graduates of courses not duly accredited by these regulatory bodies will not be mobilised for service.” He concluded.
