NYSC New Guidelines for Graduate Mobilization
The management of National Your Service Corps, just released a guideline that all graduate that are going to be mobilized for the national service must meet the following requirement as I outline them below.
- Before any graduate can be mobilized for national service, the course the graduate studied must be accredited by the National Universities Commission (NUC)
- For Monotechnics and Polytechnics graduates, their of studies must have been approved by National Board for Technical Education (NABTE).
- Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) must be aware of your admission, in other word, you must possess admission letter which is the only way JAMB can be said to be aware of your admission.
- The list of prospective corps member submitted by respective institution to NYSC will undergo screening before NYCS management can consider them
- All Corps Producing Institutions (CPIs) have been advised to abide by the extant admission quota approved by the NUC and NBTE respectively in making submission for mobilization. Any submission in excess of quotas approved will not be accepted. Graduates of courses not duly accredited by these regulatory bodies will not be mobilized for service.
- This new guideline will not affect Batch A 2013 but from batch B 2013
- What JAMB is telling us here is that, those that schooled outside the country will not be able to participate in the National Orientation Programme. These set of graduate do not go through JAMB and how can JAMB give them admission letter which is require now for the participation in NYSC programme according to the NYSC new guidelines for graduate mobilization.
- With the way schools are admitting student through various internal programme like pre-degree, foundation studies and the rest of them, this candidates don’t go through JAMB at the initial phase of their admission and in some programme, these students will go directly to second year (200L). How will JAMB recognize their admission?
- Not all who sat for JAMB got their admission letters after successfully admitted into various degree programme. How will these set of people be verified without the admission letter? I for instance never get any admission letter from JAMB even after making all effort to obtain it from Abuja with N5000 then; I never see the admission letter till I graduated.
This is just my opinion anyway, as I seem not to understand some conditions in the guideline released by National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Management which was signed by the Director General of NYSC
