The National Youth Service Corps has postponed the commencement of the 2016 Batch A (Stream II) orientation course.
The Management of the NYSC cited ‘logistics reasons’ as what necessitated the postponement.
“We enjoin all Prospective Corps members to watch out for a new date to be announced later. All inconveniences are highly regretted”, the management said.
The orientation camp was initially scheduled to open on Saturday, May 21.
Brigadier General Sulyman Kazaure, the Director General of the NYSC, had on Monday, May 16, revealed that the NYSC was seeking funds to mobilise corp members.
“We are presently at a loss in NYSC now as there is no money for us to mobilise thousands of prospective corps members in the Batch A Stream 2 to camp this Friday.”
“This is in spite of efforts made by us to get things done in that direction several weeks ago.”
“The problem staring us in the face arose from the N13 billion shortfall we had in the 2016 budget estimate which the agency made strong request for its provision during budget defence.”
What now? Dear FG, the NYSC requires ‘funds’ to facilitate ‘logistics’.
