The NYSC Scheme had earlier concluded 28th May 2020 as the agreed date of POP for the 2019 Batch B stream 1 of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC). Unfortunately, this Batch is yet to experience the most boring POP since the History of the Nigeria’s National Youth Service Corps NYSC. This is as a result of of the on-going dreadful Pandemic COVID-19 which has claimed millions of lives across the globe.
According to the NYSC management board, rather than the usual process, the Certificate of National Service (CNS) will be issued to qualified Corps Members at the Local Government level and it is going to take place in aperiod of ten days.
The NYSC Scheme Used their official social media handle to announce to the passing out Corps members and to the general public how the event is going to take place and it reads
The NYSC Management Quoted
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT PASSING OUT/DISTRIBUTION OF CERTIFICATE OF NATIONAL SERVICE The passing-out for the 2019 Batch “B” Stream 1 Corps Members has been slated nationwide for Thursday, 28th May, 2020. The event shall be devoid of ceremonial parade as a result of the great threat and danger posed by Coronavirus which the entire globe has been battling. In keeping with COVID-19 protocol of social/physical distancing, Accordingly, 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. Management heartily congratulates the 2019 Batch “B” Stream 1 Corps Members for the successful completion of the service, which undeniably is a major milestone. Dear Corps Members, as you go for your CNS from Thursday, 28th May, remember to ensure the strictest observance of discipline; anchored on orderliness, adherence to instructions, added to the rules of social/physical distancing, use of facemask, hand sanitiser and proper washing of the hands with liquid soap for at least twenty seconds during the activity. It is imperative to state that Corps Members who at present are not in their States of service need not violate the ban on inter-state journeys which is still in force. However, as soon as the ban is lifted and it is safe to travel, they are expected to go to their respective States of service to collect their CNS.

Consequently, for the first time in history, there will not be normal ceremonial parades, no group pictures, no hanging around, no hugging, no shaking of hands, no pecks,….. You can imagine 😢 so sad…. E no go better for Corona Virus!
The Federal Government had in March ordered all corpers in the country to return home as part of measures to curb the spread of the virus. On this regard, the passing-out corps members who are currently not within their states of service, are adviced to wait till the ban on inter-state travels is lifted before travelling to collect their certificates so as not to violate the inter-state travel that is still on-going.
The out-going NYSC 2019 Batch B stream 1 Corps members are also enjoined to stringently stick to all the rules of social/physical distancing, use of facemask, hand sanitiser and proper washing of the hands with liquid soap for at least twenty seconds during the event.
The management also congratulated the 2019 Batch “B” Stream 1 Corps Members for the successful completion of the service year, which unarguably is a major milestone.
