The ongoing orientation camp across the country has been suspended by the management of the National Youth Service Corps.

This is in a bid to curb the spread of the dreaded coronavirus.

In a statement released by the scheme on Wednesday, it said all corps members would proceed to their places of primary assignment.

It reads, “Sequel to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic which led to the cancellation of the national sports festival, management of the National Youth Service Corps Scheme wishes to announce the suspension of the on-going orientation course for the 2020 Batch “A” stream 1 corps members.”

“Therefore, the corps members shall be posted to commence their primary assignments forthwith, while they shall be invited back to the orientation camps when the situation improves, just like it happened a few years ago when the nation was confronted by the Ebola virus threat.

“Management wishes to state that no corps member or camp official has contracted the virus.”
