– NYSC Declares General Holiday for Corps Members

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has declared general holiday for Corps members to travel homes for festive season.

According to a letter purportedly signed by NYSC Director General, Gen. S Ibrahim, the holiday will commence on 20th December, 2019 to 6th January, 2020.

The reason for the holiday is to enable Corps members travel to their various homes for Christmas and new year cerebration.

This information is also passed across all Places of Primary Assignment (PPA) that there would be a general holiday for Corps member.

However, Corps members are expected to resume work on 7th January, 2020. Failure to resume work on the 7th attracts severe punishment.
