The National Youth Service Corps, (NYSC), has advised prospective corps members deployed for the 2022 Batch ‘C’ Stream Two Orientation Course to be security conscious.
This is contained in a statement by the Director, Press and Public Relations of NYSC, Mr Eddy Megwa.
According to the statement, the Acting Director General of NYSC, Mrs. Christy Uba, gave the advice during her visit to NYSC FCT Orientation Camp in Kubwa, Abuja.
Mrs. Uba who was at the camp to monitor the registration exercise of the Prospective Corps Members deployed to the Federal Capital Territory for their one-year national service warned them not to embark on night journey to their Orientation Camps and avoid free rides from strangers.
She advised them to pass the night at NYSC State Secretariats, military barracks, police stations and other safe places, if their journey is going beyond 6pm in the evening and continue the following day instead of endangering their lives.
“All is set and we are ready for the orientation exercise. Prospective Corps Members must not travel at night. They should be security conscious and board vehicles at designated motorparks”, Uba said.
While interacting with camp officials, the Acting Director General charged them to support the NYSC-FCT Coordinator for the overall success of the Orientation course.
She added that all hands must be on deck to ensure that the aim of the Orientation course, which is to instill discipline in the Corps Members is achieved.
