NYSC scheme tops Google trends | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

Google says a rising anxiety on the National Youth Service Corps scheme is popular on Google search this week.

Mr Taiwo Kola-Ogunlade, Google’s Communications and Public Affairs Manager for Anglophone West Africa made the announcement in Lagos on Thursday.

He said the search on NYSC was trending from Oct. 12 to Oct. 19.

“Google search for the NYSC hiked up when the agency announced its plans to mobilise only 35 per cent of eligible graduates for the next batch of the 2016 Batch B orientation.

“NYSC says some graduates will not be called ‘Otondo’ due to a lack of funds,’’ Kola-Ogunlade said.

‘Otondo’ is a slang used to refer to corps members, who are not able to keep up with daily physical exercises during the orientation period.

The Google spokesman said that the release of 21 Chibok girls to the safe arms of their parents was also trending in the week.
