The Director-General, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brig.-Gen. Johnson Olawumi, has decreed that all graduates with first class degrees would, henceforth, be deployed to teach in universities and other tertiary institutions in the country.
All corps members who graduated with First Class honours Degrees and Diplomas will be posted to tertiary institutions for effective utilisation of their manpower.
The posting policy of the scheme is being vigorously implemented for the achievement of the desired impact.
I, therefore, appeal to the authorities of all tertiary institutions of learning to reciprocate this gesture by accepting and offering them permanent appointments after service.
The NYSC DG said.
He also disclosed that an online certificate verification procedure would be introduced to enable transparency in the scheme.
He said that the verification procedure was to promote smooth interface between the scheme and the public.
This is focused at further simplifying the procedures for certificate verification and enquiries as to whether some individuals participated in national service by making the process more transparent and less cumbersome.
