National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) orientation camps will be reopened after educational institutions in the country commence full activities.
Dr. Sani Aliyu, the National Coordinator of the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19, made this known during a briefing at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport.
In March, the Federal Government shut all orientation camps, nationwide during the 3-week orientation course of 2020 Batch A1 corps members, due to COVID-19 fears.
Commenting on a possible date for reopening, Aliyu said, “For the National Youth Service Corps, the NYSC is to consolidate on safety measures currently being put in place and start preparing for the reopening of orientation camps when educational institutions open.
“We are in the process of developing strict guidelines to ensure there is no outbreak of Covid-19 when this process starts.”
