The Federal Government has ordered the immediate release of funds for the mobilization exercise of the 2016 Batch A of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).
The NYSC had earlier in the week complained about lack of funds to mobilize corps members to camp.
“We are presently at a loss in NYSC now as there is no money for us to mobilise thousands of prospective corps members in the Batch A Stream 2 to camp this Friday,” NYSC Director General Brig.-Gen. Sulyman Kazaure had told a Senate Committee on Monday.
Following Kazaure’s complain, the government intervened and released funds to accommodate the 2016 Batch A stream 11 orientation course.
The NYSC in a statement by its Director of Press and Public Relations, Mrs. Abosede Aderibigbe, commended the Federal Government for its prompt intervention.
“Management also wishes to use this medium to inform and assure prospective corps members, parents, guardians and the general public that the 2016 Batch A stream 11 orientation course holds as scheduled from Saturday 21st May to Monday, 6th June, 2016 while the swearing in ceremony of the 2016 Batch A stream 11 corps members holds on Monday, 23rd May, 2016,” the statement reads.
“Prospective corps members are by this notice directed to print their call up letters online and collect from their various institutions of graduation.”
