NYSC Gives Fresh Update as it Prepares to Reopen Orientation Camps Nationwide

The management of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), has said it will reopen orientation camps for prospective corps members as soon as the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on Covid-19 gives it the directive to do so.
The director-general of the NYSC, Brig Gen Shuaibu Ibrahim, made the statement during the inspection of some facilities destroyed by a wind storm in Gombe state, The Tribune reported.
The NYSC boss urged graduates who are waiting to be mobilised for the scheme not to be agitated. Ibrahim told the expectant graduates to be prepared because they may be called upon for camping at any time within a short notice.
The director-general disclosed that the NYSC management has inspected so many camps in the country in order to assess the level of preparedness for reopening.
He also stressed the importance of skills acquisition by youths. Ibrahim said the acquisition of skills would turn youths into employers of labour.
In a related development, A recent poll by Eyes.ng has shown that majority of Nigerian undergraduates feel safe going back to school when universities will be allowed to reopen by the federal Govt.
The federal Govt has been strengthening measures to contain the disease as Nigeria records hundreds of COVID-19 cases daily.
In spite of this Nigerian students have been mounting pressure on the govt to reopen the schools, adding that they want to resume.
It would be recalled that Nigerian students took to streets to protest the reopening of all tertiary institutions in the country as the 2week ultimatum issued to the federal govt by its leaders on reopening of schools elapsed.
The coalition of National Association of University Students (NAUS), National Association of Polytechnics Students (NAPS), National Association of College of Education Students (NACES) staged a peaceful protest on Wednesday, August 19, despite the heavy threat from police and DSS.
