The National Youth Service Corps; NYSC, has denied what it describes as fake and misleading information trending online where it was alleged to have deployed the 2024 Batch ‘A’ Stream Two Prospective Corps members from the Eastern, Southern and Western parts of the country to the North-West.

The scheme said that a purported letter circulating on social media did not emanate from its office.

The NYSC said it is backed by the constitution in its statutory and unbiased deployment policy without tribal, religious and other sentiments.

“This we have successfully done in the past fifty (50) years of its existence,” it said.

The Scheme called on parents, guardians, prospective corps members and other members of the public to disregard the malicious information.

According to the statement signed by Eddy Megwa, its Director, Press and Public Relations, the news lacked merit, was the imagination of the writer and was meant to raise apprehension among the corps members for the next orientation exercise slated for April 2024.

“The Scheme will continue to sustain the existing deployment policy of Prospective Corps Members for the benefit of all members of the service corps and also aid national unity and development without prejudice.”

It said the purveyors of fake news on NYSC programmes are strongly warned and advised to desist henceforth, from peddling fake news.
