NYSC Changes Mobilisation Criteria For Medicine Graduates

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) will no longer mobilise graduates of medicine, who have not completed their housemanship and registered with appropriate authorities.
The NYSC Director of Press, Mrs Bose Aderibigbe, who made this announcement, said that the decision was taken at the end of the NYSC 2014 Pre-Mobilisation Workshop, held in Abuja.
She advised parent institutions to carry along affiliated institutions and ensure that names of graduates were not expunged from Senate/Academic Board Approved result lists submitted to the NYSC.
The director said decision was taken to ease the problem associated with exclusion of graduates of affiliated institutions from mobilisation for service.
“Relatedly, all matriculation numbers that were assigned to graduates, but found to be invalid should be brought to the attention of the registrar, JAMB for verification.
“To guard against the bottlenecks associated with the delivery of exemption certificates to corps producing institutions, the old system of delivering simultaneously the call-up letters and exemption certificates has been restored,’’ she said.
Aderibigbe acknowledged the lapses observed in the computerisation of the NYSC mobilisation and registration process.
“Unqualified prospective corps members swell the number of prospective corps members through illegal registration online.
“Therefore, NYSC portal would no longer be opened until senate/academic board approved result lists are up-loaded.’’
She advised student affairs officers of institutions to educate their students on the implication of registering online by proxy, stressing that anyone caught henceforth would not be registered in the camps. (NAN)
