The Minister of Youth and Sports, Sunday Dare, has announced the reopening of National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, orientation camps from November 10.
“Orientation Camp of the NYSC Orientation Camp for prospective Youth Corpers has been approved and opens on November 10th, 2020. Full COVID-19 Protocols will be enforced,” Mr Dare wrote on his Twitter handle on Thursday.
Recall that on Monday, the Presidential Task Force, PTF, on COVID-19, had given the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, the go-ahead to reopen orientation camps across the country.
Speaking at their daily media briefing in Abuja on Monday, the PTF National Coordinator, Dr Sani Aliyu, however, said that announcing the date for the reopening remains the responsibility of the NYSC.
“We have had further conversations with the NYSC; we have actually given them a date but the announcement of that date remains the responsibility of the NYSC,” he had said.
