The University of Ibadan management has said steps have been taken to address the issues that its graduates are having registering for the National Youth Service Corps orientation camps.
Principal Assistant Registrar, Public Communications, UI, Joke Akinpelu, stated that graduates of the university are now being enrolled in camps, according to an interview she granted with the News Agency of Nigeria on Saturday in Ibadan.
“UI is already doing what the NYSC requires of it and the prospective corps members from the institution are now being accepted in camp,” Akinpelu said.
Some few days ago, graduates of some universities including UI and University of Nigeria, Nsukka, who reported to the NYSC orientation camps across the country were not registered by officials.
The prospective corps members were disallowed from registering in camp because their institutions; failed to comply with the NYSC format prescribed for their list to be sent to it, according to a report by The PUNCH.
Some prospective corps members, who had reported to camp as early as November 2, to begin the Batch C Orientation programme, recounted their harrowing experience including being denied food tickets to feed at the dinning halls in camp.
