Published:23 Feb, 2016
The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has warned that online registration for the 2016 Batch `A` Orientation Course, for prospective corps members, will not be extended after the Feb. 28 deadline. It will be recalled that the online registration started on Feb. 8.
Mrs Bose Aderibigbe, the Director of Press Unit of the NYSC, gave the warning in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Lagos.
Aderibigbe said that the Stream I of the Batch `A’ orientation course would hold between March 30 and April 18 in various camps across the country.
She added that the Stream II of the same batch would start from April 27 to May 16 in designated states.
The director explained that after registering on the NYSC portal, the corps members would get their call-up numbers.
“Prospective corps members shall wait until they get a Short Message Service (SMS) or an e-mail, informing them to go and print their call-up letters.
“They will get the information before March 30.
“Usually, it takes one week or few days to get this information before the orientation course begins.
Asked if the online registration is for foreign graduates only, Aderibigbe told NAN that the scheme does not segregate its corps members.
“The registration is for both local and foreign trained Nigerian graduates,’’ she said.
