FG Releases Funds For Mobilization Of 2016 Batch A, Stream II Corps Members
ABUJA—The Federal Government, yesterday, ordered the immediate release of funds for the mobilization exercise of the 2016 Batch A, stream 11 service year.
This followed the outcry by the Director General of the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, Brigadier General Sule Kazaure that lack of funds might stall the exercise if nothing was urgently done.
On Monday, Kazaure, while appearing before the Senate Committee on Youth and Sports, said all the affected corps members were to remain in their various homes due to non-availability of fund arising from N13 billion shortfall in the agency’s 2016 budget.
Consequently, the government intervened, approved and released funds to accommodate the 2016 Batch A stream 11 orientation course.
Reacting to the development, the NYSC in a statement by its Director of Press and Public Relations, Mrs. Abosede Aderibigbe, commended the Federal Government for its prompt intervention to accommodate the corps members.
The statement reads: “Management also wishes to use this medium to inform and assure prospective corps members, parents, guardians and the general public that the 2016 Batch A stream 11 orientation course holds as scheduled from Saturday 21st May to Monday, 6th June, 2016 while the swearing in ceremony of the 2016 Batch A stream 11 corps members holds on Monday, 23rd May, 2016.
“Prospective corps members are by this notice directed to print their call up letters online and collect from their various institutions of graduation.”
