He also pointed out that only candidates, whose names were compiled after giving reasons for the incomplete registration process and had been contacted “are eligible.

“At the end of the period originally scheduled for the 2021/2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculations Examination and Direct Entry registration on May 15, the registration period was extended.

“Another two weeks that elapsed on May 29 was given to accommodate candidates who, largely due to issues related with newly introduced pre-requisite of National Identification Number, could not register.”

Meanwhile, former Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon (retd.) has insisted that National Youth Service Corps has remained one of the blessings that have happened to Nigeria.

The elder statesman stated these virtually during the public presentation of nine books written by the NYSC and a film, ‘Call to Service’, to commemorate its 48 years existence and contributions to the development and unity of Nigeria.

Gowon, who is the founding father of the NYSC, also called on the Federal Government to strengthen and ensure adequate funding of the scheme.
