NYSC debunks reopening of orientation camp Oct 27

By Oluwaseun Sonde

The Management of National Youths Service Corp NYSC has debunked the news circulating on social media which stated that Orientation Course shall resume 27th October, 2020, also added that Batch “A” Stream 2, has further been subdivided into Batches “A” and “B”.

In a statement released by the Director, Press and Public Relation, Mrs Adenike Adeyemi on Saturday, the Management hereby conveyed that the news release is fake as Prospective Corps Members and the public are therefore enjoined to kindly disregard the news in its entirety.

The management further said that it has been working with the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 in order to ensure the reopening of NYSC Orientation Camps nationwide, which the PTF had earlier tied to the resumption of educational institutions in the country.

It is imperative to state that the Scheme has ensured that all the COVID-19 safety protocols incidental to safe hosting of Orientation programmes are in place in all its 37 Orientation Camps, while noted that some precautionary safety measures already adopted by the Scheme had earned commendation of the PTF.

NYSC appreciated the patience so far shown by the PCMs who have waited for over six months to be called-up for participation in the Scheme, also empathised with them over the unanticipated disruption of their programmes, resulting from COVID-19 pandemic.

“However, the Corps is highly optimistic that the Federal Government, through the PTF will soon give approval for the full resumption of camping. Meanwhile, continue to stay safe and stay tuned to NYSC’s Traditional and New media platforms for authentic information”, the statement said.
