The Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brig.-Gen. Nnamdi Okore-Affia, on Tuesday, said that the scheme has developed a software capable of preventing mobilisation mistakes.
“The ICT Department of NYSC, in collaboration with the Mobilisation Department, has developed new data entry software that will be used by all corps-producing institutions to collate data of prospective corps members,” he said.
“This is as a result of our realisation that most of the mistakes during mobilisation of prospective corps members are at the point of data entry. It is therefore, expected that this new software will assist in identifying mistakes at point of entry of any prospective corps members data.”
Okere-Affia, who made the disclosure during the NYSC 2013 Batch ‘C’ pre-mobilisation workshop, said the new software would not be put into use until the 2014 Batch ‘A’ mobilisation exercise to enable the corps-producing institutions to get acquainted with the new software.
The director-general said the ICT content of the mobilisation exercise had also been upgraded to dictate procedural non-compliance in the mobilisation programme to ensure better service delivery.
