For the orientation activities for the 2023 Batch A Stream 1, 1,570 members of the National Youth Service Corps have been deployed to Bauchi State.
Alhaji Namadi Abubakar, the NYSC Bauchi Coordinator, made this information public to the News Agency of Nigeria in Bauchi on Friday.
He claims that the orientation for the corps members will take place at the state’s permanent orientation camp in Wailo, in the Ganjuwa Local Government Area, from January 25 to February 15.
The prospective corps members wouldn’t be permitted into the camp, according to Abubakar, until they had a COVID-19-free certification from the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control.
He further explained that those that test positive for COVID-19 would be isolated at the NCDC centre outside the orientation camp for treatment, adding that registration would be conducted for just two days.
“Registration dates have been assigned to each prospective corps member and they are advised to adhere strictly to COVID-19 safety measures put in place by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 and the NCDC.
“Defaulters will be sanctioned in accordance with the NYSC by-laws,’’ the Coordinator said.
He advised the corps members to be punctual and diligent and to comply with the camp’s acceptable dress code.
“Negligence of the NYSC dressing code will not be tolerated,’’ the coordinator stressed.
Abubakar also added that a total of 1,205 prospective corps members posted to Borno State would have their orientation at the Government Girls Secondary School, Soro, also in Ganjuwa LGA
