RE: STREAM 2 TAKE NOTE
The attention of NYSC Management has been drawn to a news release circulating on the social media, bearing the above caption.
The said release states that arising from a purported meeting, Orientation Course shall resume 27th October, 2020, with Batch “A” Stream 2, which it adds has further been subdivided into Batches “A” and “B”.
Management hereby conveys that the news release is fake. Prospective Corps Members and the public are therefore enjoined to kindly disregard the news in its entirety. See also: NYSC Data Subject Consent Statement – Agree or Disagree
Management has been working with the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 in order to ensure the reopening of NYSC Orientation Camps nationwide, which the PTF had earlier tied to the resumption of educational institutions in the country.
It is imperative to state that the Scheme has ensured that all the COVID-19 safety protocols incidental to safe hosting of Orientation programmes are in place in all its 37 Orientation Camps.
Note also that some precautionary safety measures already adopted by the Scheme had earned it the commendation of the PTF.
While the NYSC sincerely appreciates the patience so far shown by the PCMs who have waited for over six months to be called-up for participation in the Scheme, it equally empathises with them over the unanticipated disruption of their programmes, resulting from COVID-19 pandemic
However, the Corps is highly optimistic that the Federal Government, through the PTF will soon give approval for the full resumption of camping.
Meanwhile, continue to stay safe and stay tuned to NYSC’s Traditional and New Media platforms for authentic information.
The viral news is fake. So please disregard it and stay connected here for legit updates. Once you belong here, you will never miss out of anything important.
