The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has said the passing out parade for Batch B stream 1 corps members slated for May 28 would not be marked with ceremonial parades due to the ravaging coronavirus pandemic.
NYSC made this known in a statement on Monday while announcing the passing out of 2019 Batch “B” Stream 1 corpers.
The Service said the Certificate of National Service would be issued to qualified corpers at the Local Government level.
“A full complement of NYSC Officers have been mobilised for the distribution and shall do so from ten service points in each of the Local Government Councils.
“As a precautionary measure, the distribution shall be staggered for a period of ten days in the first instance, in order to remove anxiety from the concerned corps members, in addition to making the activity seamless and less cumbersome,” the statement read in part.
The Service also urged the passing out members to observe strict discipline, orderliness, social distancing, use of facemask, hand sanitiser and proper washing of hands.
It advised members, who at present are not in their states of service, to wait till the ban on inter-state journeys is lifted before travelling to collect their certificates.
