The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) said it will no longer entertain the requests for changes in the date of graduation and courses of study on certificates.
This was contained in a statement issued by the NYSC Director, Corps Mobilization, Mrs Ango V. on behalf of the Director-General of the scheme, Brigadier Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim.
Mrs Ango said that the course of study and date of graduation will henceforth be included on the NYSC Certificate of National Service and Certificate of Exemption.
She said the decision was in line with the management’s resolve to standardize records and it will kickstart with the 2021 Batch ‘A’ service year.
“I am directed to remind you that, management has approved the inclusion of Course of Study and Date of Graduation on NYSC Certificate of National Service, and Certificate of Exemption.
“This decision is in line with earlier resolve to standardize records and will take effect from the 2021 Batch “A” Service Year which commenced in March 2021.
“You are to note that, in order to avoid deviation from Senate/Academic Board Approved uploads, request for changes in the date of graduation and Courses of study would no longer be entertained.
“Kindly give this circular the widest publicity it deserves. Please, accept the assurances of the Director-General’s warm regard”, the statement added.
