The Federal Government has approved the reopening of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) orientation camps across the country.
This was made known by the National Coordinator of the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19, Dr. Sani Aliyu, during a briefing in Abuja, on Thursday.
He stated that the NYSC authorities should consolidate on the safety protocols and reopen orientation camps when the tertiary institutions reopen.
“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,” he said.
“We are in the process of developing strict guidelines to ensure there is no outbreak of Covid-19 when this process starts.”
Orientation camps were shut earlier in March as part of measures to curtail the spread of COVID-19 in the country.
