Even though the senate two weeks ago approved National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) for graduates of National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), the scheme said yesterday that it would still not mobilize the graduates.
A concerned NOUN 2017 graduate on Twitter asked if his set was qualified for the service and the reply was a strong NO.
The NYSC however refused to state if it had plans to heed the senate’s approval at all.
NOUN had on its portal in the beginning of the year, congratulated its students and asked them to get ready for service.
It had told its students and graduates that “the NYSC official portal has listed Noun Lagos centre among it’s participating institution”.
It stated further: “The Nysc batch b passing programme can be checked, using the detailed guidelines provided below.
“First step is to visit the Nysc registration portal through the website below to check the NYSC senate approved list.
The Senate on July 6, passed an amendment to the law establishing of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN). The law now enables the graduates of the institution to go for NYSC and even attend the Nigerian Law School.
