NYSC to begin online registration for prospective corps members


ABUJA – The Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC),  Brig-Gen. Johnson Olawumi, said on Monday that the scheme would soon commence online registration for prospective corps members.

Olawumi made this known when he visited the Managing Director of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Mr Ima Niboro, in Abuja.

“Very soon we are going to commence online registration for prospective corps members.

“What that means is that your children, if you have a son who schooled in Nasarawa or in Lagos and you live here, when is time to go to camp, he does not have to travel to Lagos to collect call-up letter.

“Such a boy or girl can just sit in his house and register online and print the call-up letter. There is a lot to it.

“We are doing this to bring efficiency and improvement into the activities of the scheme.
“Our plan is that before the end of the year we will commence the online registration for prospective corps member.

“We believe that among other things we will reduce the rate at which corps members get involved in accident just to go and collect letters.’’

The director-general said the online registration was part of the administrative efforts to add value to the system.

Olawumi pledged NYSC’s continual partnership with NAN adding that the partnership would facilitate in conveying the activities of the scheme to the public.

He, however, urged newsmen to endeavour to seek clarification of information before publishing.

Earlier, the Managing Director of NAN, represented by Mr Jones Afolabi, the Executive Director, Research and Planning of the agency, commended the activities of NYSC in empowering the youth.

Niboro assured the NYSC boss of the agency’s collaboration with the scheme adding that NAN had the highest number of newsmen working in all states of the federation and abroad. (NAN)[eap_ad_3]
