NYSC bans unvaccinated corp members from camps

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) says prospective members will be required to show evidence of vaccination before they will be allowed into the camp for registration from the next orientation exercise in 2022.

NYSC Director-General, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim, announced this on Monday in his nationwide virtual address to the 2021 Batch “C” Stream Two corps members and camp officials adding that the new regulation would start from the next orientation camp, in a few weeks from now.

The DG said proof of Coronavirus (COVID-19), vaccination would now be required before prospective corp members are allowed to register, adding that the reason behind the new rule was the desire of the organisation to mitigate against the spread of the disease, especially with the discovery of the Omicron variant of COVID-19 in Nigeria.

The military head of NYSC also warned against making night and unauthorized journeys, urging corp members to pass the night at designated places anytime their journeys extend beyond 6:00 pm.

“We have NYSC Corps Lodges, Secretariats, and Army barracks, find out where they are and make sure you pass the night there for journeys that will take you beyond six to get to your destination,” Ibrahim said.

The DG urged the corps members to take advantage of the two weeks break after leaving the Orientation Camp to learn new skills that will make them self reliant, rather than embark on frivolous journeys.
