The National Youth Service Scheme (NYSC) has informed all corps producing institutions of its inability to mobilize all graduates of the University for the 2016 Batch ‘B’ service year as a result of tight budgetary allocation of the scheme in 2016. This development affects all universities in Nigeria.
Nnamdi Azikiwe University (UNIZIK) has issues an internal memorandum requesting all heads of departments to come for balloting on behalf of PCMs of their department.
Unizik has been requested to mobilize only eight hundred and ninty-four (894) graduates out of two thousand, three hundred and fourteen (2,314) graduates eligible for the exercise.
This is applicable for every university as NYSC has mandated them to send only 1/4 of their eligible graduates.
Bowen University has been requested to mobilize only three hundred and sixty-seven (367) graduates out of the nine hundred and fifty six (956) graduates eligible for the exercise in 2016. The remaining graduates will be given priority in the next mobilization exercise scheduled for early 2017.
Our question is , why is Nigerian Government wasting useful life of Nigerian graduates?
