You might want to ask a question. Are NIJ graduates mobilized for NYSC? The answer is YES!! NIJ Grads are usually mobilized for the NYSC. Like other graduates from many universities in Nigeria, upon the completion of the HND program, students who also fall within the required age for the NYSC and therefore meet all other criteria are always mobilized to serve in the National Youth Service Corps in the nation.
