The National Youth Service Corps on Monday said that the date of mobilisation for Batch ‘A’ corps members has been shifted from Tuesday, May 5, to Tuesday, May 26, 2015.
Aderibigbe said, “Part of the reasons is because of the forthcoming general elections. You know our corps members are participating in the elections. February 21 is when elections will be rounding off and Batch A, that is supposed to pass out, will still be in service to continue with the elections.”
The NYSC spokeswoman denied that the action was due to fears that there could be a repeat of the 2011 post-election violence.
She said, “No, which post-election violence? It is not because of that; we have three batches already in service and they are all participating in the elections. It is not because of fear of post-election violence.”
A earlier sent by the NYSC read, “The management of the NYSC wishes to inform the general public, especially prospective corps members, that due to some operational exigencies, corps members will be mobilised in only two batches this year: 2015 Batch ‘A’ and 2015 Batch ‘B’.
“Furthermore, the 2015 Batch ‘A’ Orientation Course has been scheduled to take place from Tuesday, May 5 to Tuesday, May, 26 2015, and not in the month of March as obtained in the previous years.
“All prospective corps members are advised to check the NYSC website: www.nysc.gov.ng for details of the 2015 Batch ‘A’ mobilisation time-table and be guided accordingly, please.”
