NYSC bars pregnant women, PG students from service enlistment

The National Youth Service Corps has barred prospective corps members that are pregnant and nursing babies from participating in the national service across the country.
Also affected are students undergoing post-graduate studies in institutions of higher learning in the country.   
The Director-General of the NYSC, Brig-Gen. Johnson Olawumi, who said these in Kaduna, however, said those affected needed not bother to enlist for service “until they are free to participate effectively.”
This was contained in the resolution of the two-day retreat released to journalists on Thursday.
“It was further resolved that pregnant women, nursing mothers or students engaging in post-graduate studies should not bother to enlist for service until they are free to participate effectively,” the resolution read.
