SIR: I decided to stay anonymous because the NYSC’s oath of allegiance does not allow corps members to grant interviews or make press statements. I believe NYSC officials are using that as a cover to extort corps members.

The 2015 Batch A is coming to an end soon as they are on the last three weeks terminal leave. NYSC Lagos State has instructed and placed all outgoing corps members under compulsion to pay a N1000 for NYSC magazine. As if that is not enough, corps members are also under compulsion to pay an extra N500 for NYSC Foundation. Now, all corps members in the Local Government Areas in Lagos have been told to pay the money or risk the seizure of their NYSC certificate.
