NYSC 2016 Batch B to have a 'Stream 2'


 The 2016 Prospective Corp Members from different Nigerian and international institutions of higher learning look forward to their call-up letters today, 21st November, if the NYSC Batch B timetable is something to go by. However, the question of whether or not the Batch B will have a Stream 2 was answered last week by the Director General of the NYSC, Brig. Gen. Sulaiman Kazaure who had a media chat at Abuja on the policies of the NYSC.

The DG said on Wednesday that the NYSC was determined to mobilize all the PCMs who are eligible and registered for service this year but due to insufficient orientation camps capacity not all PCMs will have to be mobilized this year but will be mobileized for camping in January 2017 in the NYSC 2016 Batch B Stream 2.

Kazaure who said what was left of the provision made for mobilization of Corps members in the 2016 budget could only accommodate eighty-six thousand prospective Corps members however, added that following the federal government's intervention, all the one hundred and seventy thousand prospective Corps members that successfully registered online are now being processed for 2016 Batch 'B'.

"So far, we have received green light from the relevant government agencies to prepare for the mobilization of all qualified prospective Corps members.

"However, the limited cumulative capacity of the Orientation camps nationwide necessitates a second stream Orientation course for the 2016 Batch 'B' which is being planned for January 2017," he said.


According to NYSC facebook page post, Kazaure lamented the failure of some states and local governments to discharge their statutory obligations to the Scheme pointing out that their attitude resulted in the limited capacity and quality of facilities in most Orientation camps across the country.

The Director-General stressed that the provision of Orientation camp facilities and post-camp accommodation and transport of Corps members were among the responsibilities of states and local governments as spelt out in the NYSC Act.

Others he enumerated include logistics support for inspection of Corps locations, material support for community development service and security of Corps members.

He, therefore, appealed to states and local governments that are not discharging their statutory obligations to reconsider their stance and give their support towards the success of the Scheme's operations.
