DA variation of reactions have trailed the cries of National Youth Service Corps members who claimed to have paid the now-compulsory N4060 fee for prospective corps members on-line but have not gotten their call-up numbers via e-mail. The registration which approached its deadline yesterday, October 12, 2014, has kicked up a lot of dust.
While some could be seen celebrating, others wore long faces, as they cannot go to their orientation camps without their call-up numbers.
The N4,060 was reportedly meant to computerise the issuance of call-up letters to save prospective corps members the stress of traveling to their various schools to collect same. The idea was tagged “online registration of corps members”.
On that basis, the NYSC authorities revealed that the payment was not mandatory for all corps member but for those wishing to get their call-up online.
While congratulatory messages of “Successfully Mobilized for Deployment” with the call-up number were mailed to some, since October 5, 2014, others confessed that they have not gotten theirs yet, despite having fulfilled all the conditions for the pre-registration.
