THE National Youth Service Corps NYSC has denied change in the passing-out date for the 2015 batch ‘B’ corps members.
Reacting against a supposed document being circulated online which was credited to the scheme, NYSC described such as fake.
In a statement issued by the Head of Press Unit, Mrs Abosede Aderibigbe in Abuja on Tuesday, it said:”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 September 16, 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: October 6, 2016, 2015 Batch ‘B’ Stream II: November 4, 2016.”
However, it said 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.
It advised serving and prospective Corps members and the general public 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:”Official website: www.nysc.gov.ng, Facebook page: www.facebook.com/officialnysc,Twitter handle: www.twitter.com/nysc_ng
“All are strongly advised to take note and be guided accordingly, please,” it warned.
