Metro N4,000 Call-Up Fee: Service is Optional, Says NYSC


Social Member
In the wake of the introduction of the N4,000 fee to be paid by prospective corps members for the printing of their call-up letters online, the NYSC has declared that the service is optional and not compulsory for prospective corps members.

This was the content of yesterday's press briefing. Anthony Ani, director of corps mobilization said that the service, which included the receipt of call-up numbers via email or SMS, printing/reprinting of call-up letters online (in case of loss) was for people who opted in. He stated that prospective corps members who choose to collect their call-up letters from their institutions need not pay this fee.

He also mentioned that the new service was designed to help eliminate the irregularities which have plague the scheme, which includes the mobilization of the unqualified, missing records of the mobilized, tedious camp registration processes and the problem of corps members evading service.
