NYSC suspends orientation course over coronavirus fears

 

The National Youth Service Corps has released an official statement which confirmed the suspension of on-going orientation course at orientation camps across the country due to the coronavirus pandemic.

 

Recall LIB reported earlier that the decision was taken barely 24 hours after the third coronavirus case was confirmed in Nigeria.

 

In a statement released on its official Facebook page, NYSC authorities stated that Corps Members shall be posted to commence their primary assignments forthwith, while they shall be invited back to the Orientation Camps when the situation improves just like it happened a few years ago when the nation was confronted by the Ebola virus threat.

 

The management also disclosed that no Corps Member or Camp Official has contracted the virus since its outbreak.

 

The statement reads in full;

 

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: SUSPENSION OF THE ON-GOING ORIENTATION COURSE

Sequel to the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic which led to the cancellation of the National Sports Festival, Management of the National Youth Service Corps Scheme wishes to announce the suspension of the on-going Orientation Course for the 2020 Batch “A” Stream 1 Corps Members.

Therefore, the Corps Members shall be posted to commence their primary assignments forthwith, while they shall be invited back to the Orientation Camps when the situation improves, just like it happened a few years ago when the Nation was confronted by the Ebola virus threat.
