NYSC Batch A 2017 Stream II Begins Orientation On July 26

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has finally published its long-awaited date for the commencement of orientation for the prospective Batch A 2017 Stream II corps members nationwide. It has been verified that the exercise will start on the 26th July, 2017. 

This year's Batch A Stream II orientation course has been scheduled to take place from 26th July to 15th August, and prospective Batch A 2017 Stream II Corps Members are to print their call-up letters starting on the Friday, 21st July, 2017.

The NYSC spokesperson Bose Aderibigbe while briefing the press on Tuesday  stated that Streams 1 and 2 came into being when the scheme observed that corps members’ population was increasing.

“We have so many schools turning out prospective Corps members and once they register, we can't ask them to wait for the next batch because the camp facilities are inadequate,” she said.

She made it know to the media that about 150,000 prospective Corps members registered for Batch A 2017 streams.

“We had 77,000 corps members for Stream 1 and this time around, we will be having 72,000. So, if we say the whole 150,000 should go at once, we will overstretch our camp facilities”, she stated.

NYSC Batch A 2017 Stream II Orientation Camp Activities:

Highlights of the orientation course are as follows:

1. Registration and verification: Wednesday 26th July – Thursday, 27th July, 2017.

2. Registration Cut-off date: Midnight of 27th July, 2017.

3. Closing ceremony: Tuesday, 15th August, 2017. 

The NYSC has also urged prospective Batch A 2017 Stream II corps members to report promptly to the orientation camps in their states of deployment at the camp addresses indicated in their call-up letters.

The NYSC scheme was created in 1973 to reconstruct, reconcile and rebuild the country after the Nigerian Civil war.

The purpose of the scheme was primarily to inculcate in Nigerian youth the spirit of selfless service to the community, and to emphasise the spirit of oneness and brotherhood of all Nigerians, irrespective of cultural or social background.
