The federal government on Monday debunked rumours that it had put an end to the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).

In a statement by Garba Shehu, Presidency spokesman, the President muhammadu Buhari administration said reports in the media about the scrapping of the programme were false, because “NYSC is a creation of the law. Only another law can repeal it.”

Also, concerning the Commencement of 2016 Batch ‘A’ (Stream II) orientation course, the NYSC management said at the weekend: “Management wishes to inform prospective NYSC Corps members that, based on the assurance received from the Federal Government regarding release of funds, the 2016 Batch ‘A’ (Stream II) orientation course will start soon.

“Date of commencement will soon be announced and prospective corps members are, therefore, requested to watch out for specific date of the exercise, which will be made public as soon as all necessary logistics for effective conduct of the orientation course are in place.

“NYSC Management empathises with the affected prospective corps members, and appeals for continued patience even as all efforts on the matter are fast expedited.”
