Director-General Shuaibu Says No NYSC Mobilisation Soon

Ibrahim Shuaibu of the Nigerian Youth Service Corps, says there are no plans to mobilise recent graduates in the country for the compulsory scheme as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak.

In an interview with Economic Confidential, Shuaibu said only Batch A, Stream 1, who were initially asked to leave camp as a result of COVID-19 would be asked to complete orientation.

He said, “We don’t know when we are going to start mobilising our corps members. You know our training is also structured like that of the military and paramilitary. You can see that the Nigerian Navy recently suspended its training for its freshly recruited cadets.

“So, the moment the coast is clear, we are going to key into the way others will conduct their exercise, so that our corps members can be called back soonest.”
