Students of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) Ile-Ife, lamented over missing the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Stream 1, Batch A of 2021.
The students, who lamented over the delay in separate interviews with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), on Tuesday, in Ile-Ife, attributed their grievance on missing the Stream 1, Batch A service to the school management for not uploading their names in the NYSC portal.
One of the affected students, Ibrahim Yusuf, who studied electrical electronic engineering, said missing it was painful because the students had stayed at home for almost a year because of COVID-19.
However, the Dean, Students Affairs, OAU, Prof. Isiaka Aransi said that the department wanted to upload the first stream on March 5, but unfortunately, NYSC closed its E- Portal for Stream 1 on March 3.
