The National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, has described as misleading and fake news a fake circular with the above caption, making the rounds on the social media, purported to have emanated from the Scheme.
Paragraph 2 of the fake and very misleading circular reads: “All potential Corps Members (PCMS) that had registered between 13th and 15th of November to kindly go to their State NYSC Office on Friday, 19th November, 2021 to verify their thumbprint and reappend their signature to avoid cancellation of documents in the camp.”
However, NYSC urged the public, particularly Prospective Corps Members (PCMs ) who the originators of the fake circular referred to as potential Corps Members are strongly advised to disregard the fake circular in all its entirety.
The management urged the public to strive to get authentic information on the Scheme only from NYSC official sources: social media platforms, print and electronic media.
