NYSC Threatens To Report Institutions Producing Half-baked Graduates

The Management of the National Youth Service Corps(NYSC) has threatened to report the schools with highly deficient graduates to the regulatory bodies for sanctions following poor quality graduates being registered by some schools for the scheme.

The NYSC Director-General, Brig Gen Nnamdi Okorie-Affia, said this during the 2013 Batch ‘A’ pre-mobilisation workshop entitled ‘Generating Credible Data for a Perfect Mobilisation Process in Ilorin, Kwara State on Thursday.

Okorie-Affia, who regretted that many organisations had rejected corps members after they found them to be academically deficient, said the scheme had also discovered that some higher institutions had been presenting overage students and products of internally introduced unaccredited courses for mobilisation.

He said there were corps members who could hardly communicate in English Language, saying the development had wrongly earned the NYSC a bad name

The army chief said, “You will agree with me that it is extremely difficult to re-orient a corps member who cannot read. To underscore the seriousness of this challenge, we now have a situation whereby principals of schools and other employers reject corps members because they cannot fit into their work schedule.”

He said getting accurate and credible data from corps producing institutions for mobilising eligible graduates had been difficult.

According to the DG, the data for mobilisation by corps producing institutions in 2012 showed that many exceeded the admission quota approved by their respective regulatory bodies by as much as 500 per cent.

Okorie-Affa said, “The direct consequences of this on the scheme is massive corps population explosion, sometimes exceeding even the safe bound of acceptable standards of geometric progression. This has made planning in the NYSC rather difficult and is fast drawing the ire of both government and the general public.

“I instituted an inquiry on illegal fees being charged corps members by some Corps Producing Institutions before mobilising them for national service.”
