The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has dismissed reports which claim that it has fixed 24th June, 2017 as date for the commencement of the 2017 Batch ‘A’ (Stream II) Orientation Course.
According to a statement issued during the weekend by its Director of Public Relations, Bose Aderibigbe, NYSC said: “The attention of the NYSC Management has been drawn to an online statement, which claims that the 2017 Batch ‘A’ (Stream II) Orientation Course has been scheduled to commence on 24th June, 2017.
“We wish to state that the information is false and, to say the least, misleading.
“Management assures Prospective Corps Members and other stakeholders that the date of commencement of the 2017 Batch ‘A’ (Stream II) Orientation Course will be made public through our official channels in due course.”
It could be recalled that the NYSC had earlier said that the 2017 Batch A Orientation course for stream I, which commenced on Tuesday, 23rd May will end on Monday, 12th June, 2017 nationwide. It however remained silent on the date for the Orientation course for stream II.
