NYSC Changes Mobilisation Norm For Medicine Graduates

National Youth Service Corp, NYSC reviewed its mobilisation crieteria for medicine graduates. Henceforth, Graduates of medicine who are yet to complete their housemanship and have not fully registered with the appropriate authorities will not be mobilised for service any more.


The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) will no longer mobilise graduates of medicine, who have not completed their housemanship and registered with appropriate authorities.

The NYSC Director of Press, Mrs Bose Aderibigbe, made the announcement in a statement on Monday in Abuja.

Aderibigbe said that the decision was taken at the end of the NYSC 2014 Pre-Mobilisation Workshop, held in Abuja.

“Graduates of medicine who are yet to complete their housemanship and have not fully registered with the Nigerian Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria will not be mobilised for service any more.

“Receipt of payment for registration would no longer be accepted in lieu of certificate of registration.’’

She advised parent institutions to carry along affiliated institutions and ensure that names of graduates were not expunged from Senate/Academic Board Approved result lists submitted to the NYSC.

The director said decision was taken to ease the problem associated with exclusion of graduates of affiliated institutions from mobilisation for service.

“Relatedly, all matriculation numbers that were assigned to graduates, but found to be invalid should be brought to the attention of the registrar, JAMB for verification.

“To guard against the bottlenecks associated with the delivery of exemption certificates to corps producing institutions, the old system of delivering simultaneously the call-up letters and exemption certificates has been restored,’’ she said.

Aderibigbe acknowledged the lapses observed in the computerisation of the NYSC mobilisation and registration process.

“Unqualified prospective corps members swell the number of prospective corps members through illegal registration online.

“Therefore, NYSC portal would no longer be opened until senate/academic board approved result lists are up-loaded.’’

She advised student affairs officers of institutions to educate their students on the implication of registering online by proxy, stressing that anyone caught henceforth would not be registered in the camps.

“As from 2015 Batch ‘A’ service year, mobilisation of prospective corps members would be effected on the basis of quota/carrying capacity of each institution as approved by the respective regulatory bodies,’’ Aderibigbe said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that the conference of NYSC stakeholders, comprising various associations and unions in the education sector recently supported a downward review of the new online registration fee. (NAN)
