The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), on Monday, warned corps members against attending the Law School during the one year mandatory National Service.
The decision was made by the NYSC management during the 2016 Annual Management Conference of the Scheme, in Asaba, the Delta State capital.
While noting that such an act “is illegal and unacceptable”, the conference said “the NYSC Act provides for uninterrupted service year”.
They however advised “prospective Corps members to choose which one to defer between National Service and Law School attendance instead of attempting to combine both.
“Parents of prospective Corps members have also been advised by the conference to allow their children take decisions as adults and avoid discouraging them from accepting postings to any locations in the country.
“Management also noted the return of normalcy in some states whose orientation camps were closed due to insecurity, and expressed readiness to make phased reopening of the camps after due consultations with security agencies and governments of the affected states.”
The conference further resolved to deepen engagements with key stakeholders, including the security and intelligence community and traditional rulers on matters of security and general well-being of Corps members.
