“No Corp member must die in camp again” – DG warns state coordinators


Registration for the first batch of the 2020 National Youth Service Scheme is already underway but the DG of the NYSC has given a stern warning before orientation begins.

Brigadier-General Ibrahim Shuaibu warned all state coordinators that no corps member must die during camp orientation programme while in camp again.

The NYSC boss stated that there would be consequences for such occurence.

He gave this warning yesterday in Abuja at the 2020 Batch A pre-orientation meeting of management with area coordinators, state coordinators, camp directors, camp commandants and collaborating agencies.

Recall that in the recent past there have been deaths reported in camp during orientation stemming from poor hygienic conditions and lack of adequate health care. This year’s camping is due to begin in mid-March.
