NYSC Clarification on April Clearance Status Showing COVID-19.
It is no longer news that some Corps Members are seeing “COVID-19” as their April Clearance Status.
The reason for this is because the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) is finding the best way to effectively manage its programme during this perilous time.
In a clear term, NYSC is likely to place on hold some Corps members’ service year, especially those in Batch ‘A’ 2020 Stream 1 and non medical corps members.
It is worthy to note that contrary to everyone’s expectation, COVID-19 is getting worse in Nigeria on a daily basis. More new cases are reported, and it is just increasing geometrically.
Since no one knows when COVID-19 will end in Nigeria, NYSC might place IRS program on hold. If not, 2020 Batch A Stream 1 corps members will spend their entire service year at home and get paid as well.
Note: NYSC will stop paying Corps members allowance if its program is place on hold until COVID-19 is over and everything starts normally.
Meanwhile, the NYSC management has not released any official statement regarding this. We will keep updating you from time to time.
