NYSC Shut 3-Weeks Orientation Camp Over COVID-19

Following the continuing outbreak of Coronavirus, Nigeria’s National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) on Wednesday morning shut down all its camps and suspended ongoing orientation course for its corps members nationwide.

The NYSC mobilization starts with a three-week orientation course and it is compulsory for all Nigeria graduates mobilised for national service.

The service year comprises of four main segments in which every Corps Member must satisfactorily participate before he/she is qualified to be issued a certificate of National Service. They include Orientation Courses, Primary Assignment, Community Development Service and Winding – Up/Passing –out

The NYSC blamed the decision to shut all its orientation camps in the country on the outbreak of coronavirus which on Tuesday forced the Federal Government to cancel the National Sports Festival.

The decision was conveyed in a statement from the NYSC management which was posted on its Facebook page Wednesday morning.

The statement read: IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: SUSPENSION OF THE ON-GOING ORIENTATION COURSE

“Sequel to the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic which led to the cancellation of the National Sports Festival, Management of the National Youth Service Corps Scheme wishes to announce the suspension of the on-going Orientation Course for the 2020 Batch “A” Stream 1 Corps Members.

“Therefore, the Corps Members shall be posted to commence their primary assignments forthwith, while they shall be invited back to the Orientation Camps when the situation improves, just like it happened a few years ago when the Nation was confronted by the Ebola virus threat.”
