The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has officially announced the dates for passing-out of the 2015 Batch ‘B’ Corps members.
The ‘official’ announcement became necessary following reports of a “fake document” purportedly bearing the passing out dates, which was published by some unscrupulous elements.
In a statement issued on its verified social media accounts on Monday, the NYSC stated that Stream I will pass out on October 6 while Stream II will conclude its service year on November 4.
The circular reads:
RE: 2015 BATCH ‘B’ WINDING UP/PASSING-OUT APPROVAL
The attention of the NYSC Management has been drawn to a fake document with the above heading being circulated online and purported to be from the NYSC National Directorate Headquarters in respect of the passing-out of the 2015 Batch ‘B’ Corps members.
The document, dated 16th September, 2016 and made with scanned official letterhead and other portions of an earlier circular of the Scheme, dismisses the dates set for the passing-out of the 2015 Batch ‘B’ Corps members as contained in that genuine circular in a bid to cause confusion.
Management wishes to inform the 2015 Batch ‘B’ Corps members and the rest of the public that the official passing-out dates are as follows:
2015 Batch ‘B’ Stream I: 6th October, 2016
2015 Batch ‘B’ Stream II: 4th November, 2016
Details of the winding-up/passing-out activities lined up in respect of the two streams have been communicated to all NYSC State Secretariats for implementation.
Furthermore, serving and prospective Corps members and the general public are hereby advised to note that any information from the NYSC National Directorate Headquarters meant for transmission online can only be so transmitted by the Scheme through the following platforms:
