The Chairman of the Conference of Nigerian Political Parties (CNPP) in Bayelsa State, Lucky Akpeli, has called on students to protest against the new fee meant for the collection of NYSC call-up letters.


According to Sahara Reporters, Mr Akepli made it known today that the N4,000 charged prospective corps members by the authorities of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) to obtain call-up letters is “outright extortion.

Mr Akpeli who wants a reversal on the fee said the collection of money from hapless Nigerian graduates to serve their father land was uncalled for. He called on the National Youth Service Corps Scheme saying: “Any Federal Government agency that collects N4,000 from Nigerian youth to serve their father land is unpatriotic; The Federal Government should as a matter of fact reverse the decision.”

He expressed his concerns over the issue saying that Federal Government agencies, NYSC inclusive, should take advantage of citizens. “It is likely that Nigerian students will resist it,”he furthered. In fact, I am calling on Nigerian students to stand up against this kind of decision”.

It would be recalled that in a bid to curb the spread of Ebola Virus in Nigeria, the directorate of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) recently announced that the 2014 Batch B orientation program will last for about 1 to 2 days instead of the usual 21-day program.
