The management of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) said no date has been fixed for registration for the 2017 Batch ‘A’ prospective corps members.
This was in reaction to viral reports online that the registration would commence on Monday, February 8.
The statement read: “The attention of the NYSC Management has been drawn to an online post stating, inter alia, that ‘the NYSC On-line registration portal will be opened from Monday 8th February to WEDNESDAY 15th February, 2017’.
“We wish to warn that the statement was not issued by the NYSC Scheme and should, therefore, be disregarded.
“For the avoidance of doubt, no date has yet been set for the commencement of online registration by 2017 Batch ‘A’ Prospective Corps Members.”
The NYSC management said it will unveil the 2017 batch ‘A’ mobilization timetable at the appropriate time through its official communication channels.
Less than two weeks ago, the NYSC management released the timetable for the 2016 Batch B stream II orientation course.
The orientation programme which commenced on January 24, will end on February 13, 2017.
