The Management of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), on Tuesday, said the Federal Government has approved and released funds to enable the scheme accommodate the 2016 Batch ‘A’ stream 2 orientation course.
Mrs Bose Aderibigbe, the NYSC Director of Press in Abuja assured prospective corps members, parents, guardians and the general public that the 2016 Batch ‘A’ stream II orientation course would hold as scheduled.
The statement said the orientation course would hold from Saturday, May 21 to Monday, June 6, 2016 while the swearing-in ceremony would hold on Monday, May 23.
It directed prospective corps members to print their call up letters online or collect from their various institutions of graduation as it may apply to them.
It expressed profound gratitude to the federal government for its prompt intervention, approval and release of funds.
The NYSC had expressed fears on Monday that the programme could be cancelled because the Federal Government had failed to release the N13billion needed to mobilise the corps members.
