The Director-General, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier-General Shuaibu Ibrahim has assured young Nigerians eagerly waiting to be mobilized for the National Service to exercise patience.
According to the DG, efforts are ongoing with the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 on safe Orientation Camp resumption, saying that NYSC is on the verge of reopening the camps.
Brigadier-General Ibrahim, in a statement on the official Facebook of the scheme, conveyed his deepest appreciation to all Prospective Corps Members (PCMs) who have been at home in the past six months, waiting to be mobilised to the NYSC Orientation Camps nationwide for the commencement of the national service.
The DG said, “It is very important to state that nobody anticipated the sad disruption of the operations of the Scheme, and other national programmes arising from COVID-19, a global challenge threatening over two hundred countries.
“The long period of waiting, no doubt has been quite challenging and frustrating as it seemingly constitutes a big drawback to all your planned actions for the year.
