NYSC Denies Suspending 2014 Batch ‘B’ 2nd Stream Orientation

The board of NYSC has denied suspending 2014 Batch ‘B’ 2nd stream orientation for prospective corps members deployed to Bauchi, Gombe, Adamawa, Jigawa, Yobe and Borno States because of Ebola Virus spread. This is the update on the story.

UPDATE: NYSC batch B 2014 2nd stream (no camping, CHECK new timetable)

A news titled “NYSC Suspends Orientation In 6 States Due To Ebola” caught my attention on Pulse NG and I decided to dig dip into the matter. They claim that the suspension was in line with a bid to ensure that the Ebola disease does not spread further within the country. This news was also published on several blogs and broadcast on some Nigerian Television Stations.

Here is the update on the news as reported by Leadership NG:

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has stated as false reports aired on a national television station that the orientation course for prospective corps members deployed to Bauchi, Gombe, Adamawa, Jigawa, Yobe and Borno States has been suspended due to the outbreak of Ebola Virus Disease.

In a press release signed by its management yesterday, the scheme explained that the orientation course for Stream II was suspended due to the federal government’s pronouncement that all schools currently on vacation should remain closed to avert the spread of the Ebola Virus Disease.

It therefore stated that the report aired was misleading and capable of causing fear and panic among residents of the states mentioned.

‘’For the purpose of putting the record straight, management of the NYSC took a decision in July 2014 to shift the venues of orientation course for seven states; namely, Bauchi Gombe, Jigawa, Borno, Yobe Adamawa and Kano, to other states due to security challenges and the fears of parents whose wards are to be mobilised. Therefore the orientation course in these seven states and that of Osun as well as additional corps members for Lagos State was planned to hold from 1st to 22nd September, 2014 under Stream II of the 2014 Batch ‘B’,’’ it said.

Important Information for prospective corps members:

All the best in your service to the Nation!!!
