My brother and i were only discussing this last night,suggesting the NSYC should suspend activities for a while till the Ebola crisis dies down.If you have ever been to an NYSC camp,you wuill know it is one of the easiest places to contract any infections or diseases.They are dreadful! Hygiene is 0,Zero,Nil,Jack!
Absolutely disgusting,i fear an outbreak could come from those camps,all it takes is one case and our youths and leaders of tomorrow are in trouble!
So with this in mind,it was pleasing to hear that The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has announced the suspension of scheduled stream two orientation programme of the 2014 Batch ‘B’ Orientation in six states billed to start on Monday, September 1st due to the dreaded Ebola disease in the country.
Brig Gen Johnson Olawumi, the Director General of the NYSC, who announced the decision in Kubwa Orientation Camp in the Federal Capital Territory, said the corps members deployed to Adamawa, Bauchi, Jigawa, Borno, Gombe, and Yobe States will be affected by the directive.
Corps members posted to Adamawa State will have their orientation programme in Niger; Bauchi corps members are expected to resume in Plateau State, while those posted to Borno State are to go to Nasarawa State camp.
Other affected states are Gombe, where corps members are expected to serve in Benue, with Jigawa State corps members expected to have their orientation programme in Kaduna, while corps members posted to Yobe State are expected to resume at the Federal Capital Territory Orientation camp.
