Reason why NYSC suspends Stream II of the 2014 Batch ‘B’ Orientation Course

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has debunked the trending news report that the orientation course for prospective corps members deployed to Bauchi, Gombe, Adamawa, Jigawa, Yobe and Borno states has been suspended due to the outbreak of Ebola Virus Disease.

It blamed security challenges and the fears of parents whose wards are to be mobilized for the initial change in timetable.

According to a statement from the NYSC headquarters; the report was misleading and capable of causing fears and panic among residents of the states mentioned.

The statement read: “For the purpose of putting the record straight, Management of the NYSC took a decision in July 2014 to shift the venues of orientation course for seven states; namely, Bauchi, Gombe, Jigawa, Borno, Yobe, Adamawa and Kano to other states due to security challenges and the fears of parents whose wards are to be mobilized.

“Therefore the orientation course in these seven states and that of Osun as well as additional corps members for Lagos State was planned to hold from 1st to 22nd September, 2014 under Stream II of the 2014 Batch ‘B’.

“However, due to the Federal Government’s pronouncement that all schools currently on vacation should remain closed to avert the spread of the Ebola Virus Disease, the orientation course for stream II has to be suspended.

“Meanwhile, arrangement has been put in place for this group of prospective corps members to be documented, registered and provided with the required logistics as bonafide corps members.

“Details of the arrangements put in place for the affected prospective corps members will be conveyed through the print and electronic media.”

The Director General of NYSC, Brig-Gen Johnson Olawumi announced the suspension of the course for the six states in Kubwa Orientation Camp in the Federal Capital Territory.

Olawumi however assured the prospective corps members that they would not suffer unduly as the NYSC would ensure that they were not cheated in any way by staying longer than necessary at home.
