    Challenges Foreign Trained Graduates face during Registration

    These days a lot of Nigerians choose to study abroad for many reasons but the main reason is the poor quality of education in the country, especially in our universities which are facing various setbacks such as incessant strike actions, issue of poor facilities and an un-conducive learning environment.

    These are a few reasons why we Nigerian seek education abroad, I published an article on how Nigeria looses billions to foreign education, I advice you read up on that to know how it affects the educational sector.   After obtaining their certificates majority of Nigerians come back to participate in National Youth Service Corps.

    NYSC Platoon Orientation, Training & other Events

    The process is now less stressful for foreign graduates as they no longer have to visit NYSC headquarters in Abuja for verification, all that can now be done in camp after mobilizations. Although graduates from Benin Republic, Ghana and other universities who’s accreditation is in doubt, have to obtain a letter of evaluation in other to be mobilized. The letter can be gotten from the federal ministry of education Nigeria.
