The Federal Government has approved the reopening of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) orientation camps nationwide.
Recall that Orientation camps were shut in March as part of measures to curb the spread of COVID-19.
Now, the National Coordinator of the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19, Dr Sani Aliyu has announced that the federal government has approved its reopening.
Dr Sani Aliyu made this announcement on Thursday, during a briefing at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport.
According to him, the NYSC authorities should consolidate on the safety protocols, and reopen the camps when the tertiary institutions open.
In his word;
“For the National Youth Service Corps, the NYSC is to consolidate on safety measures currently being put in place and start preparing for the reopening of orientation camps when educational institutions open.
“We are in the process of developing strict guidelines to ensure there is no outbreak of Covid-19 when this process starts.”
