Software to Tackle Posting Errors have been Developed by NYSC

The Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brig.-Gen. Nnamdi Okore-Affia, said on Tuesday that the Corps had developed a software, capable of preventing mobilisation mistakes.

Okere-Affia said that the innovation would identify mistakes at the point of entry of all corps members’ data to tackle difficulties experienced in the mobilisation exercise.

He made the disclosure during the NYSC 2013 Batch ‘C’ pre-mobilisation workshop with theme: “Appraising NYSC Mobilisation Strategies for a Better Service Delivery” in Minna.

“The ICT Department of NYSC in collaboration with the Mobilisation Department has developed new data entry software that will be used by all corps producing institutions to collate data of prospective corps members.

“This is as a result of our realisation that most of the mistakes during mobilisation of prospective corps members are at the point of data entry.

“It is therefore, expected that this new software will assist in identifying mistakes at point of entry of any prospective corps members data.”

Okorie-Affia said the new software would not be put into use until the 2014 Batch ‘A’ mobilisation exercise to enable the corps producing institutions to get acquainted with the new software.

The director-general said the ICT content of the mobilisation exercise had also been upgraded to dictate procedural non-compliance in the mobilisation programme to ensure better service delivery.

The Niger Governor, Dr Babangida Aliyu, who was represented by the state’s Commissioner for Youth, Mr Kabiru Wushishi, pledged to sustain the support given by the State Government to the corps to promote national unity. (NAN)
