Prospective corps members who graduated with first class degree from universities and those who graduated with distinction from the polytechnics would henceforth have tertiary institutions as their place of primary assignment.
This was disclosed by the Director-General of the National Youths Service, NYSC, in Kaduna on Wednesday during the opening ceremony of 2015 Batch ‘B’ Pre-Mobilization Workshop.
While enumerating his reform programmes aimed at improving service delivery and efficiency in the NYSC, Olawunmi assured that when his reforms get fully implemented, the NYSC programme would become a seamless process that would add value to young Nigerian graduates.
He used the workshop to announce that Nigerian universities had been banned from offering post-graduate admission to serving corps members.
On his part, the Director of Corps Mobilization, Mr. Anthony Ani explained that the workshop would critically “look at the data entry used for the exercise for the Senate approved list, the list of approved corps producing institutions and the list of accredited courses”.
