The director of Press and Public Relations of the NYSC, Mrs. Bose Aderibigbe, had stated that the N4,000 to be paid by prospective corps members for printing of call-up letters online and other services including infrastructure to be deployed for the services, might be reduced subsequently.
Aderibigbe disclosed this while briefing journalists on the outcome of the meeting held yesterday in Abuja between the director-general of the NYSC, Brig.- General Johnson Olawumi, and the special assistant to President Goodluck Jonathan on Youth Affairs, Mr. Jude Imagwe.
She stated that though the reduction of the fee cannot be done immediately, the review of the whole service would be made by the management of the scheme and the collaborating firm, Messrs SIDMACH Technologies Nigeria Limited adding that the money might be reduced in the future.
“Imagwe came to find out what is going on about the outcry against the payment of N4,000 online registration fee by prospective corps members.
The DG told him that the N4,000 being paid is not for call-up letters but just for the operation and provision of infrastructure in all NYSC camps and its 37 secretariats.
