Pregnant women, Nursing mothers, PG students Excluded from NYSC service year
After the pre-mobilization workshop held in Kaduna regarding the 2015 NYSC Batch B mobilization, a communique was reached that pregnant women, nursing mothers and students engaged in their postgraduate studies will no longer be enlisted in the national service across the country, until they are free to participate effectively.
The Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps, Brig-Gen. Johnson Olawumi in a two-day pre-mobilisation workshop for the 2015 Batch “B” NYSC programme, held in Kaduna, stated that the exemption of pregnant women and nursing mothers, as well as post-graduate students from national service was because they would not be able to take active part in the four cardinal programmes of the NYSC which are mobilisation, orientation, primary assignment and winding-up/passing out parade.
Pregnant women, Nursing mothers, PG students Excluded from NYSC service year: The pre-mobilization workshop tagged “ICT and NYSC Mobilization Process: Towards Eliminating Identified Challenges,” also stressed the need to allow prospective corps members to choose the state they want to serve so as to achieve the aim of the programme at the end of the service year. This option of selecting by themselves excludes their socio-cultural and linguistic areas, using ICT solution.
This was to stop students paying money to request for a particular state for the National Service year.
