Shuaibu Ibrahim, the director general of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), on Monday, May 27, threatened to blacklist institutions who fraudulently mobilise unqualified graduates.
Ibrahim said that the move by the NYSC will hopefully deter tertiary institutions in the country. He said unqualified graduates should not be enrolled in the forthcoming Batch B mobilisation in June, 2019, The Cable reports.
The NYSC boss said: “Corps-producing institutions are warned not to enrol unqualified graduates into the mobilisation process of the scheme. I advise all of you, participants, not to fall into the temptation of unscrupulous elements that may want to truncate the mobilisation process.
“The NYSC will blacklist any corps-producing institution that is involved in fraudulent mobilisation of unqualified graduates in order to serve as a deterrent to others. As leaders, do the right thing. Let us maintain good integrity and check your data correctly.”
He revealed that online registration for the Batch ‘B’ prospective corps members is scheduled to begin on Saturday, June 1, and end on Wednesday, June 12.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the allowance of members of the NYSC has been increased to N30,000 by the federal government.
The disclosure was made by the minister of finance, Zainab Ahmed, who however, noted that the federal government is still working out modalities before the implementation of the new allowance for corps member.
Legit.ng gathered that the minister made the disclosure in Abuja on Thursday, May 16, during a press conference where she added that the total sum of N649.434 billion was verified by the ministry as the outstanding balance to be refunded to the state governments.
