Reports from ThisDay says – The DG of NYSC, Gen Johnson Olawumi exposes the fake intending corpers via the new online enrolling system.
Olawumi expressed further that the system would wipe out fraud, avoidable deaths in the encountered in the mobilization processes. Therefore, he advises NYSC to embrace the modern ICT (Information Communication Technology) system. See excerpts below:
“It becomes antithetical for the NYSC to have retained the antiquated and traditional manual mobilization processes with the attendant shortcomings and associated problems, rather than embracing a global phenomenon that eliminates errors and saves time,” he said.
“The prospective corps members have equally faced the treachery of fraudsters who extort money from them in the name of NYSC without remorse, frustration in collection of call-up letters, cloning of lost call-up letters for the purpose of fake camps and stealing of call-up letters from schools.”He added
“During the last Batch ‘C’ Mobilisation and Orientation exercise, we tested the project and it was a huge departure from the past as prospective corps members went online to register, while Corps Producing Institutions simply sent the Senate approved results which were uploaded. Those who qualified for mobilisation and chose the option of accessing the infrastructure, were promptly notified by e-mail and immediately received Call-up numbers online instead of travelling to their schools,” he stated.
