…no new date given
The National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, has suspended orientation camping exercise in Benue and Taraba states for 2017 BATCH “B” STREAM II scheduled to start on January 16, 2018.
The announcement for the suspension in the two states came from the organization’s twitter handle to prospective corp members, PCMs, posted to Benue and Taraba. It noted that a new date will be communicated soon.
“The NYSC management wishes to inform all PCMs deployed to Benue and Taraba states that the 2017 Batch B stream 2 orientation course scheduled to hold in Benue camp has been suspended. A new date will be communicated to you in due course,” said NYSC.
There was no reason given for the sudden cancellationor postpoment but, there is the belief that the latest position of the agency may have followed insecurity and killings in the two states over the Fulani headers feud with the indigenes.
The NYSC had previously fixed January 16 for the opening of orientation camps for prospective Batch B, Stream 2, corps members nationwide.
The management of the Scheme had said the 2017 Batch ‘B’ Stream II orientation course was scheduled to hold in 15 NYSC Orientation Camps which were Abia, Bauchi, Benue, Delta, Enugu, Sokoto, Jigawa, Kaduna, Katsina, Plateau, Lagos, Osun, Oyo, Rivers and the FCT.
With this development, orientation camp will commence on the 16th only in 13 states and Abuja.
