2020 Batch ‘A’ will return to camp after lockdown – NYSC

The National Youth Service Corps has said 2020 Batch A corps members would complete their orientation course after the coronavirus lockdown.

The NYSC made this known in a statement by its Director, Press and Public Relations of NYSC, Mrs Adenike Adeyemi, on Wednesday.

The PUNCH reports that the corps members were asked to vacate camps nationwide after increasing cases of COVID-19 in the country.

The statement quoted the Director-General of the scheme, Brg.-Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim, as speaking during a courtesy visit to the Director-General of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, Dr Chikwe Ihekweazu, in Abuja.

Ibrahim informed the NCDC boss that NYSC suspended the 2020 Batch ‘A’ Stream One Orientation Course just one week into the exercise as a proactive measure to avert the spread of COVID-19 to any of the orientation camps.

He noted that a proposal to reopen orientation camp has been submitted to the NCDC.

Ibrahim said, “The suspended 2020 Batch ‘A’ Stream One Orientation Course will be completed when the NYSC receives the green light from the Presidential Task Force. Conscious of the possibility of the further or complete lifting of lockdown, the strategies mapped out by the NYSC management had taken care of various scenarios, and would be presented to the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 through the NCDC for guidance.”

Responding, Ihekweazu praised the contributions of the scheme to the unity and development of the country, stressing that it deserved every form of support to enable it to succeed.
