Breaking: Not All Students On The Approved Senate List Will Be Mobilized For NYSC Batch B

Strong indications have emerged that not all students, whose names appeared on the lists of recently approved results by the University Senate will be mobilized for the NYSC Batch ‘B’ proposed to begin next month.


Late yesterday, Wednesday, OAU Peeps News Agency gathered that the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has sent memos to the Division of Student Affairs (DSA) of various institutions mandating them to shed the list of their graduating students presented for the coming batch.

For instance, at the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, the number of graduating students that are due to go with Batch ‘B’ was 2,314. However, NYSC has mandated the institution to reduce the number to 894, indicating over 60 percent reduction. Our correspondents were also able to gather that it is the same situation in schools that are presenting prospective corps members (PCMs).

The latest development was borne out of the complaint of lack of sufficient fund by the NYSC. Obviously, the cash crunch cum recession period tells the obvious and it has now weighed its unpleasant effects on prospective corps members.

As at the time of filing this report, we have not been able to confirm yet neither the level of reduction in the number of PCMs to be presented by Obafemi Awolowo University nor the method that will be adopted to prune down the already pasted list of prospective corps members.

However, non-official sources at the DSA told us that OAU is also affected by the development. About 4,000 PCMs are expected to be mobilized for the Batch ‘B’ by OAU, but going by the rate of reduction given to other institutions, OAU may end up mobilizing just 1,600 graduating students.

In the mean time, online registration for prospective corps members on NYSC website would begin on October 17.
