Batch ‘A’ Stream 1 Corps Members will not return to Camp. Batch ‘A’ Stream 2 are automatically turned to Batch ‘B’, and they will go to Camp on 10th November.
The Federal Government has announced November 10th as the official resumption date of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) orientation camps. Now, the question that many people are asking is “Who are those going to camp on 10th November; 2020 Batch ‘A’ Stream 1 or Stream 2?
The NYSC Director-General, Shauibu Ibrahim, had repeatedly said that Batch ‘A’ Stream 1 would return to orientation camps to complete their orientation course which was disrupted due to Covid19 pandemic.
However, there is a leaked information from the NYSC management meeting suggesting that Batch ‘A’ Stream 1 will no longer return to the orientation camps due to logistic reasons.
Recall that the NYSC DG once hinted that a Camp will receive total number of Corps Members ranging from 600 – 700, against the normal range of 2000 – 3000.
Why Batch A Stream 1 will not return to camp
If Batch ‘A’ Stream 1 are to return to Camp, it’s clear that all of them will not return at once. It will be done group by group, and they will re-print their Call up letters. The left-overs, will they continue working from their Place of Primary Assignment (PPA) or stay at home while waiting for a turn to enter camp?
So, it is practically not possible, or will create more confusing, and we do not know how NYSC will handle that. For this reason, NYSC cancelled the idea of Batch ‘A’ Stream 1 returning to camp.
The official information at hand is that Batch A Stream 2 will automatically be turned to Batch B, and they will camp on 10th November. Batch ‘A’ Stream 1 will not return to camp. They will continue their service from their respective PPA.
