“A new date will be communicated to you in due course. All inconveniences are highly regrettable,” the scheme said.

Earlier, the NYSC had issued a statement that the 2017 Batch ‘B’ Stream II orientation course would hold in only 15 camps nationwide.

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) is an organization set up by the Nigerian government to involve the country’s graduates in the development of the country.

There is no military conscription in Nigeria, but since 1973 graduates of universities and later polytechnics have been required to take part in the National Youth Service Corps program for one year.

This is known as national service year. Ahmadu Ali served as the first Director-General of the NYSC until 1975.

The incumbent Director-General is Brig. Gen. Sule Zakari Kazaure.
