281 Fake Corps Members Sent Out Of Camp
Disclosing this on, August 26, at the close of the three weeks orientation exercise, at the camp, the National Youths Service Corps (NYSC) Coordinator in the State, Mr. Steven Ehoda-adi, said the fake corps members who had nothing to show that they were qualified for admission into the camp, were immediately sent away.
Mr Steven said some of the corps members claimed to have been attacked by armed robbers on their way to Minna and their call up letters taken away from them while some said they misplaced their call up letter.
He added that some others presented only photocopies of the call up letter which according to him is not accepted by NYSC authority.
He explained that 230 corps members who were pregnant and nursing mothers were disallowed from taking part in routine orientation exercise in the state.
Leadership reports that the NYSC state coordinator disclosed that 3,259 of the Batch B corps members, 2014, successfully, completed the exercise for their primary assignment in the state.
Brig Gen Johnson Olawumi, the Director General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), suspended the orientation programme of the 2014 Batch ‘B’ corps members in six states namely Adamawa, Bauchi, Jigawa, Borno, Gombe, and Yobe States, over Ebola outbreak.
The NYSC Scheme is for those who have graduated from tertiary institution and for you to partake, a call up letter will be sent to your school. The NYSC scheme has 3 stages, first is a 3 week orientation camp, the Community Development Services (done once a week), and The Place of Primary Assignments, (where each corp member is posted to after the orientation camp and where he is to serve for one year).
Currently, there are 3 batches of corps members every year. The Batch A usually starts from around February period. B people starts around June/July, and C October/November.
