NYSC Releases Mobilization Guidelines for 2023 Batch B – The management of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has released guidelines for the mobilization of graduates in the National Service Program for 2023 Batch B. NYSC is a scheme that was established by the Federal government of Nigeria on May 22nd, 1973, with the purpose of rebuilding and integrating the country after the civil war.
The scheme was created with the primary purpose of reconstructing, reconciling, and rebuilding the country after the Nigeria/Biafra Civil war. The damages caused by the civil war gave the Federal Government the impetus to establish the National Youth Service Corps.
Nigerian graduates who have obtained a Bachelor’s Degree or HND from an accredited university at the age of
30 years or below are qualified to take part in the NYSC program. You may like to check how NYSC calculate age limit for mobilization.
Guidelines for mobilization of graduates
Below is the statement released by the NYSC Director-General as regards to mobilization of graduates this year;
As part of efforts aimed at ensuring that only eligible graduates who pass through duly accredited full time courses are mobilized for participation in the National Youth Service Corps.
The NYSC Management is collaborating with relevant regulatory bodies of the respective Corps Producing Institutions (CPIs), the National Universities Commission (NUC) for Universities, Degree awarding institutions and the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) for Mono/Polytechnics, and as well as the entry admission examination body Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).
Accordingly, the data of all prospective corps members as submitted for mobilization by their respective
institutions, are subjected to screening for conformity with the requirements of these regulatory/examination 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 regularise same with JAMB.
Similarly, all Corps Producing Institutions (CPIs) have been advised to abide by the extant admission quota
approved by the NUC and NBTE respectively in making submission for mobilization.
Any submission in excess of quotas approved will not be accepted. Graduates of courses not duly accredited by these regulatory bodies will not be mobilized for service.
It should be stated, for emphasis, that the regularization of admissions with JAMB is the duty of the Corps Producing Institutions (CPIs).
Just as the confirmation of approved admission quota for each course and the determination of their accreditation status is the prerogative of the regulatory bodies (NUC and NBTE).
It is imperative to state that the NYSC will not act as a liaison office between the Corps Producing Institutions (CPIs) and these regulatory/examination bodies.
This much had earlier been brought to the notice of CPIs at the last Pre-Mobilization Workshop. Corps Producing Institutions which are unable to conclude the regularization exercise during the 2023 Batch ‘A’ service year could still be considered in subsequent Batches when the outstanding issues would have been resolved by the institution.
It has become expedient to bring this information to the attention of the general public for necessary guidance.
