The National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, on Wednesday announced the passing-out date of the 2019 Batch “B” Stream 2 corps members.
The scheme in a statement released through its Director, Press and Public Relations, Mrs Adenike Adeyemi, on Wednesday in Abuja, announced July 16 as the passing-out date.
NYSC also said that qualified corps members are to collect their Certificates of National Service (CNS) at the Local Government level.
“Arising from the threat posed by COVID-19 pandemic, and as a precautionary measure, the event will be low-key.”
“Accordingly, the distribution of the certificate of national service shall be staggered for a period of 10 days in the first instance, in keeping with the safety measures established by Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC),” the statement read in part.
The Director-General of the scheme, Brig-Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim, in the statement, commended the outgoing corps members for their service to the nation.
Ibrahim also called on them to remain good ambassadors of the scheme in their future endeavours.
“All corps members and NYSC stakeholders are advised to stay vigilant, in order to guard against the contraction of COVID-19.”
