Stop posting camp activities on social media, NYSC DG warns corps members

Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brig.- Gen. Yushau Ahmed, has warned corps members to stop posting camp activities on social media.

The D-G said posting happenings in camp on social media is a violation of the scheme’s standing rules and policies.

Ahmed, who spoke during a visit to the NYSC Orientation Camp in Ede, Osun, on Friday, advised corps members in camps across the country to maintain good character and discipline during the three weeks orientation exercise

He also tasked the corps members to be focused and take advantage of the skills acquisition programme in camp.

According to him, the knowledge and skills acquired would make them self independent and better individuals after their service year.

“The skill acquisition is targeted towards making you independent in order not to depend on white collar jobs .

“We are in collaboration with stakeholders that will give you grants. Please that this measure seriously,” the D-G said.

Ahmed assured the corps members of their safety and security, adding “the camp officials will never post you to anywhere that is not safe for you . You are important to us .

“Guide yourself against any danger and be vigilant. Also, take precautionary measures by ensuring you stay safe,” he said.

Ahmed further advised them to maintain the best hygiene while in camp in order not to be infected with any disease, especially cholera diseases.

He also urged corps members to be good ambassadors wherever they are posted to in the country.

The NYSC state coordinator in Osun, Mr Agbor Obim, thanked the D-G for his visit to the camp and the love he has for the corps members. .(NAN)
