The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has disclosed that it will not allow unvaccinated corps members entry into its nationwide camps.
This was made known on Monday by the Director-General of the scheme, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim.
He noted that the measure will take effect from the next orientation camp, which is a few weeks from now.
While addressing the 2021 Batch “C” Stream Two corps members and camp officials, he said prospective corps members will now need to show evidence of vaccination from coronavirus before they would be allowed to register.
Shuaibu said the scheme was trying to enact effective measures to prevent the spread of the disease owing to the detection of the Omicron COVID variant in the country.
He also warned corps members not to engage in any might journey.
“We have NYSC Corps Lodges, Secretariats and Army barracks, find out where they are and make sure you pass the night there for journeys that will take you beyond six to get to your destination,”
