The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has decreed that from henceforth, participation in the national service and attendance of Law School at the same time “would not be acceptable”.

A statement by the spokesperson of the NYSC, Mrs. Abosede Aderibigbe, on Friday said this was part of the resolutions made at the 2016 annual management conference of the organisation, which took place in Asaba, Delta State.

Participants also agreed that the policy on posting of the corps members to places of primary assignment would be reviewed to meet contemporary needs.

Aderibigbe said the conference stated that the NYSC Act provided for uninterrupted service year, and “advised prospective corps members to choose which one to defer between national service and Law School attendance instead of attempting to combine both.”

She said:

Parents of prospective corps members have also been advised by the confab to allow their graduate children take decisions as adults and avoid discouraging them from accepting postings to any location in the country.
Management also noted the return of normalcy in some states whose orientation camps were closed due to insecurity, and expressed readiness to make phased reopening of the camps after due consultations with security agencies and governments of the affected states.

The conference also resolved to deepen engagements with key stakeholders, including the security and intelligence community and traditional rulers on matters of security and general well-being of corps members.
