2016 NYSC Batch B: Pre-Mobilization Workshop Holds September 6 & 7
The Director General of the National Youth Service Corps, Brigadier General Sule Zakari Kazaure has approved the 2016 Batch 'B' Pre-Mobilization Workshop for all stakeholders in the NYSC Mobilization Process.
In a letter sent to Registrar of institutions last week, NYSC informed that the workshop is scheduled for September 6 & 7 and it holds in Ibadan, Oyo State. The theme of the workshop is 'Overcoming the Challenges of NYSC Mobilization Process: The Role of Stakeholders'. According to NYSC, a session in the workshop will be used to take officers of institutions through the nitty-gritty of online Data Entry Programme being used for the collation of graduates' data for uploading.
Prior to this time, NYSC had requested institutions to furnish it with the figures of their graduates who will be mobilised for national service in the forth coming 2016 Batch 'B' service year. The deadline for institutions who will be presenting graduates to comply with this directive has now been pegged at September 7, the last day of the Pre-Mobilization Workshop in Ibadan.
In Obafemi Awolowo University, the Senate of the institution is expected to sit today, Wednesday to approve the results of the 2014/2015 graduating students who are expected to be part of the 2016 Batch 'B' mobilization. The checks conducted by OAU Peeps News Agency revealed that some departments have been able to finish up with the processing of the results and data of their graduating students, while many others are struggling to meet up with today's university deadline to present the results of their graduating students at the Senate.
For instance, some departments in the Biological Sciences already have their graduating Students' results ready - the students have seen all their final semester results and they have their CGPA and class of honour already shown on their e-Portal page - thus making them good to go.
In what seems to be a different clime, a graduating student from a department in the Faculty of Social Sciences who does not want his name mentioned told OAU Peeps that he is not sure his department will meet up, except another Senate meets before the NYSC deadline of September 7. According to him, apart Special Elective courses, he has seen only the result of just one of the courses he took in his final semester.
It is expected that the results that are approved by the Senate today will be published by the Division of Student Affairs (DSA). Also, the NYSC timetable for the 2016 Batch 'B' is expected to be released anytime from now.
