The 2022 Batch C stream I orientation course has been slated to commence on November 2. The call-up letter is a document from the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) to all Prospective Corps Members showing their State of Deployment, Date of Reporting to the Camp for the orientation exercise, Officer-In-Charge, and Address of Orientation Camp.
This is to inform all the 2022 Batch ‘C’ prospective corps members that the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has opened the portal to print call-up letters.
Before we proceed let’s take a look at the meaning of this NYSC we are talking about.
What is NYSC?
This abbreviation “NYSC” simply means National Youth Service Corps. This is a program set up by the Nigerian government to involve Nigerian graduates in nation-building and the development of the country. There is no military conscription in Nigeria, but since 1973 graduates of universities and later polytechnics have been required to take part in the National Youth Service Corps program for one year. This is known as the national service year.
Prospective Corps members are expected to log on to the NYSC Portal to commence printing their Call-up letters.
Prospective Corps Members that did not make payment during online registration are to collect their Call-up Letters from their respective institutions of graduation.
