The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) is to collaborate with the National Universities Commission (NUC), the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) and the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), to ensure that only eligible graduates who pass through duly accredited full time courses are being mobilized for participation in the national service.
In a release signed by the director general of the scheme, he stated that these regulatory bodies would cover respective Corps Producing Institutions (CPIs) of universities and degree awarding institutions, Mono/Polytechnics and the entry admission examination body.
The DG added that the data of all prospective corps members submitted for mobilisation by their respective institutions would be subjected to screening for conformity with the requirements of these bodies.
" In this regard, all prospective corps members whose admissions are not known to JAMB, will be deemed to be improperly admitted. The admission status of such students will require the affected CPIs to regularize same with JAMB."
He advised all Corps Producing Institutions (CPIs) to abide by the admission quota approved by the NUC and NBTE adding that graduates of courses not duly accredited by these regulatory bodies will not be mobilized for service.
