Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim, has urged corps members to be conscious of their health, practice good hygiene and ensure that their hands are thoroughly washed and apply sanitisers regularly.

He said the NYSC scheme was interested in their wellbeing and would not undermine their welfare and security.

He stated this yesterday in his address to the 2020 Batch ‘A’ Stream One corps members at Orientation Camp in Kaduna State.

General Ibrahim, who was earlier subjected to medical screening alongside other members of his entourage on arrival at the camp, also appealed to the corps members to take cognizance of their security.

He warned against unauthorised journeys, adding that anyone caught would be sanctioned in accordance with NYSC laws, adding, “Don’t endanger your safety, avoid late night movements and don’t make yourselves available for kidnappers. Don’t cut corners, but respect your dignity at all times.”

He also advised the corps members to use their national service to promote unity, integration and national cohesion among Nigerians, irrespective of ethnic nationality, religious creed or political leanings.
