The Director General of the National Youth Service Corps, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim has assured there would be strict compliance with all COVID-19 safety guidelines in all Orientation Camps across the country.
The NYSC DG said this in Jos at the 2020 Batch ‘B’ Pre-Orientation Workshop with the theme: ‘Evolving a dynamic operational strategy in the management of camps in the Context of COVID-19.’
He said management would continue to evaluate the conduct of Orientation Course as well as re-strategise towards enhancing its success due to its critical role as a launchpad for the service year.
“Management is committed to ensuring that no camp records outbreak of the virus. The 2020 Batch ‘A’ Stream One Orientation Course was suspended abruptly on the 18th of March, 2020 to avoid the outbreak of COVID – 19 in the Orientation Camps.
“In line with the current realities, our approach to the conduct of the forthcoming Orientation Course will focus on proper induction of corps members on core ideals of the Scheme, with equal attention paid to the approved safety protocols,” he stated.
NYSC said that since the outbreak of the coronavirus in the country, it had not recorded any case among corps members and staff.
