RE:COVID-19: NYSC IGNORES CALLS TO CLOSE ORIENTATION CAMPS BECAUSE CONTRACTORS WILL LOSE SOURCE
The attention of NYSC Management has been drawn to a story with the above caption making the rounds on the social media.
Management wishes to state that the story in its entirety is full of inconsistencies, lacking in facts and accuracy.
In November, 2020, the Scheme after putting in place necessary measures for safe reopening of camps, and guided by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) reopened its camps.
It is imperative to restate that everyone coming into the NYSC camps must undergo COVID-19 test, Corps Members and officials alike. Only those that test negative are admitted into the camps.
Accordingly, members of the general public are advised to disregard the unbalanced and cooked-up reportage designed to deliberately create fear and panic in the minds of unsuspecting Nigerians.
