NYSC Announces 2021 Batch ‘B’ Winding-Up/Passing-Out Date

NYSC - National Youth Service Corps

The Nigerian government created the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) to engage Nigerian graduates in nation-building. In Nigeria, there is no mandatory military service, but since 1973, graduates of universities and later polytechnics must participate in the National Youth Service Corps program for a year.

 It is referred to as the national service year. The NYSC's initial director-general, Ahmadu Ali, held the position until 1975. Brig. Gen. Muhammad Fadah now serves as Director-General.
