NYSC Makes NIN Mandatory For Registration


The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has made the registration of the National Identification Number (NIN) mandatory for its national service.

The scheme said the NIN would be used to mobilise corps members for this year’s service.

It insisted that prospective corps members without the number would not be mobilised for national service.

In a statement by its Director of Press and Public Relations, Eddy Megwa, the NYSC said: “Starting from 2024 mobilisation, all the eligible prospective corps members are expected to register for mobilisation with their National Identification Numbers (NIN).

“This was part of the deliberations during the meeting of NYSC Management led by the Director General, Brig.-Gen. Y. D. Ahmed, with the Management of National Identification Management Commission, led by its Director General, Abisoye Coker-Odusote in Abuja today (Thursday).

“Brig.-Gen. Ahmed said the collaboration with NIMC on corps mobilisation would strengthen the online registration process for the scheme.

“He added that the NYSC integrated system that was introduced in 2014 has tremendously assisted the scheme in its mobilisation process, but there is need for improvement.”

Coker-Odusote promised the readiness of the commission for the collaboration between both agencies.

She lauded the NYSC mobilisation protocols and the scheme’s efforts towards molding corps members for leadership responsibilities for over fifty years of its operations.
