THE national youth service corps (NYSC) has announced preparations for the 2017 Batch “B” have begun, yesterday the service held The 2017 Batch ‘B’ Pre-Mobilization Workshop which commenced with a training session for Data Processing Officers of Corps Producing Institutions.
This is coming ahead of the main interactive session later today during which stakeholders will map out strategies for a hitch-free administration of the 2017 Batch ‘B’ Mobilization exercise.
This brings us to the one question students of National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) has been asking; will NOUN students be mobilized for 2017 Batch ‘B’ program? Well let’s look at the facts as it stands now; NOUN students has never been mobilized for service in the past and the institution and the Nigerian senate has passed enabling laws to allow NOUN students serve.
In trying to find out the fate of NOUN students for 2017 Batch ‘B’, it is highly likely that NOUN students will indeed be mobilized. This is because the current senate list of tertiary institutions on NYSC portal includes National Open University of Nigeria.
When the time come for participating students to verify their names in 2017 Batch ‘B’ senate list, NOUN students can also be listed.
