Corps members certificate presentation to last for ten days

The National Youth Service Corps has said due to the social distancing policy of the Federal Government, this year’s presentation of certificates to Batch B corps members, who are expected to pass out on May 28, will last 10 days.

The NYSC stated on Monday that it had mobilised officers to 10 service points in each local government area in the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, to ease the distribution of certificates.

The scheme’s Director of Press and Public Relations, Mrs Adenike Adeyemi, said in a statement that the passing out of corps members on Thursday would be devoid of “ceremonial parade as a result of the great threat and danger posed by Coronavirus.”

The NYSC added that as soon as the ban was lifted, such corps members were expected to go to their respective states of service to collect their certificates.

“Kindly note that unclaimed certificates shall be returned to the NYSC National Directorate Headquarters, Abuja, two weeks after the lifting of inter-state travel ban,” the scheme added.

Meanwhile, the National Youth Service Corps has said that the passing-out ceremony for 2019 Batch B Stream 1 corps members slated for May 28 across the federation would be without fanfare in view of the raging COVID-19 pandemic.

Ekiti State NYSC Coordinator, Mrs Emmanuella Okpongete, said “corps members would be discharged and issued their Certificate of National Service without the usual fanfare at their various local government areas of service” across the country.

Okpongete, in a statement issued in Ado Ekiti on Monday by the State Head, Press and Public Relations Unit, Rose Onoja, urged employers of corps members to issue release letters to those who have completed the mandatory one-year service. Punch
