The National Youth Service Corps has mobilized 66,000 corps members across the country for the 2020 NYSC Batch “B” exercise scheduled to begin tomorrow (Tuesday).
The Director-General of the NYSC, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim, stated this during a media chat in Abuja on Monday.
He said, “As of last Thursday, a total of 66,000 eligible graduates had been mobilized for the 2020 Batch B service year resuming on Tuesday, November 10. They will participate in the Orientation exercise, which has been planned in three streams for ease of compliance with the COViD-19 protocols”
The DG further said the NYSC management had put essential measures in place to contain the pandemic and curtail community transmission in camps across the country.
Ibrahim also warned fake graduates seeking to infiltrate the orientation camps on Tuesday for the mandatory service year to stay away in their own best interest.
The DG said, “Let me warn unqualified persons who are contemplating appearance in our camps to have a rethink in their own interest as we are poised to apprehend and hand them over in the appropriate agencies for prosecution.
“This year, we secured the conviction of fake corps members in Taraba. We are currently prosecuting many others. If you know you’re not a qualified graduate do not show up. If you do, we’ll arrest you and hand you over to relevant agencies for prosecution.”
