The National Youth Service Corps has released the passing out date for the 2019 Batch “B” Stream 1 corpers.
NYSC in a statement released on Monday, revealed that the passing out slated for May 28 would not be marked with ceremonial parades due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Scheme further stated that the certificate of the corpers would be issued at the Local Government level.
“A full complement of NYSC Officers have been mobilised for the distribution and shall do so from ten service points in each of the Local Government Councils.”
“As a precautionary measure, the distribution shall be staggered for a period of ten days in the first instance, in order to remove anxiety from the concerned corps members, in addition to making the activity seamless and less cumbersome.”
NYSC called on the passing out members to observe strict discipline, orderliness, social distancing, use of facemask, hand sanitiser and proper washing of hands.
It called on corpers who are not in their states of service, to wait till the ban on inter-state traveling is lifted.
The Federal Government had in March ordered all corpers in the country to return home as part of measures to curb the spread of the virus.
