Presidency: NYSC Has Not Been Scrapped
“NYSC is a creation of the law. Only another law can repeal it.”
Statement from Garba Shehu, Official Spokesperson to President Buhari (SSA, Media & Publicity), concerning the online reports of NYSC scraping.
Although, this does not affect the conduct of Post UTME(JAMB) into all Tertiary institutions in Nigeria which has been scraped as “being unnecessary, that the UTME only will suffice for purpose of Admission into all higher institutions in Nigeria.”
Also, concerning the Commencement of 2016 Batch ‘A’ (Stream II) Orientation course, NYSC Management issued the following Statement over the weekend:
Management wishes to inform prospective NYSC Corps members that, based on the assurance received from the Federal Government regarding release of funds, the 2016 Batch ‘A’ (Stream II) Orientation course will start soon.
Date of commencement will soon be announced and Prospective Corps members are, therefore, requested to watch out for specific date of the exercise, which will be made public as soon as all necessary logistics for effective conduct of the orientation course are in place.
NYSC Management empathizes with the affected prospective Corps members, and appeals for continued patience even as all efforts on the matter are fast expedited.
