Meanwhile, the scheme has denied reports making going rounds on social media that it has mandated all prospective corps members to undergo a compulsory medical check-up amounting to N11,000 before going to their various camps.
The report had said that the management of the scheme had demanded that all PCMs are to compulsorily present a copy of their HIV, genotype, blood group, HBsAg, PCV, HCV, and Urinalysis.
The report also claimed that it is expected that the registration and phone number of the doctor in charge of the test appear on the certificate for verification.
The report further claimed that this information was passed to the prospective corps members during the questions and answers sections organized by various institutions for the grandaunts.
But an official of the NYSC who spoke to newsmen debunked the report.
