The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) says the passing-out of the 2019 Batch “B” Stream 2 corps members has been fixed nationwide for July 16.
NYSC also said that qualified corps members are to collect their Certificates of National Service (CNS) at the Local Government level.
The NYSC disclosed this in a statement by its Director, Press and Public Relations, Mrs. Adenike Adeyemi, on Wednesday in Abuja.
”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 statement quoted the Director-General of the scheme, Brig.-Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim, as giving kudos to the outgoing members for their service to the nation, and in particular for standing out to be counted in this time of national emergency.
The director-general also enjoined 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.”
