We do not post corps members to areas where insecurity is heightened – NYSC

By Damilola Adeyemo

ABUJA – The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has said are not posted to where there is no security.

In a statement, Mrs. Adenike Adeyemi, the Director, Press and Public Relations, NYSC, said “We are very sensitive about security and we ensure that we do not post corps members to areas where insecurity is heightened, and if we post them to anywhere that is tough or where the parents say no to because of insecurity, we will redeploy them. It appears that the public does not have the full information about this,” 

“We went into collaboration with the NCDC and before any staff is allowed into the camps, they are usually tested and if they test positive, they are immediately handed over to the NCDC. It is after we have all gone through the test that we now go in and then the prospective corps members also go through the process.

“We decided to have batches A, B, and C and streams one to two so as to reduce camp capacity due to the new normal. The streams may be removed when lifestyles go back to normal. These are just responses we put in place due to COVID-19 guidelines.”
