The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has said camps across the country will now open January 19, 2021, as against the earlier announced January 18, 2021.
NYSC Camp Safe Reopening Project Lead, Dr Oyeladun Okunromade, stated this on Friday during a sensitisation webinar for the 2020 Batch B Stream II corps members.
In attendance were the Director-General of the NYSC, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim, and the Director-General of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), Dr Chikwe Ihekweazu.
The NYSC DG said the Service won’t hesitate to decamp any corps member, who fails to adhere strictly to COVID-19 protocols on orientation camps.
Okunromade revealed that corps members would resume 200 in number daily and would be tested for COVID-19 upon getting to NYSC camps.
She warned that corps members who fail to resume at their allotted dates risk resuming with the next batch.
“There won’t be any form of religious gatherings in camp. We encourage virtual activities,” she said, adding that corps members are required to come on camp with their face masks and other personal protective materials as the NYSC would not provide those.
Okunromade added, “Maami market has been significantly reduced in line with the new normal. There won’t be any sitting down with friends to dine at the market but there will take-aways.”
