This has forced the NYSC to issue a response dated 20th of September, 2017 as seen below:
“The attention of the NYSC Management in Abia State has been drawn tp the news going round in the social medua among corps memers that the State Coordinator has ordered all corps members serving in Abia state to leave the State on or before 1st of October, 2017.
