The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has again maintained that there is no official date for reopening of camps
A statement signed in Abuja on Saturday by NYSC Director of Press and Public Relations, Adenike Adeyemi dismissed reports that the orientation course will resume on October 27, 2020 as fake.
According to the statement, “it is imperative to state that the scheme has ensured that all the Covid-19 safety protocols incidental to safe hosting of orientation programs are in place in all its 37 orientation camps”.
“Note also that some precautionary safety measures already adopted by the scheme has earned it the commendation of the Presidential Task Force (PTF),” it added.
The NYSC expressed hope the Federal Government will soon give approval for the full resumption of camping.
“While the NYSC sincerely appreciates the patience so far shown by the Potential Corps Members (PCMs) who have waited for over six months to be called-up for participation in the Scheme, it equally empathizes with them over the unanticipated disruption of their program, resulting from Covid-19 pandemic,” the statement concluded.
