Unauthorised traveling now attracts punishment - NYSC issues warning to Corp members

Corps members have been advised to always seek permission from the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, before traveling.

Brigadier General YD Ahmed, the Director General of the NYSC, emphasized the consequences of such behavior during his address to Corps members at the orientation camps in Oyo and Ogun states on Wednesday.

According to him, traveling without permission can lead to sanctions, and employers are not permitted to authorize NYSC Corps members to travel.

He advised the Corps members that all services in NYSC are provided at no cost, cautioning them to be cautious of online scammers who may try to charge them for posting and redeployment.

The DG emphasized the importance of adhering strictly to the NYSC dress code for Corps members, highlighting that not following the dress code while wearing the NYSC uniform can lead to sanctions.

“Don’t dress anyhow. Dress as good ambassadors of NYSC and always abide by all NYSC rules and regulations,

“Respect the culture and tradition of your host communities when you leave camp. Make good impact on the communities and in your place of primary assignments”, the DG said.

He stated that efforts are still on-going towards the signing of the NYSC Trust Fund bill into law.

General Ahmed encouraged the Corps Members to engage fully in all camp activities and to build strong friendships with each other during their time at the Orientation Camp.

The Director General urged them to steer clear of idleness and instead involve themselves in purposeful activities that will enhance their skills beyond just their certificates.

During the presentation of the Orientation Camp brief to the Director General, Mr. Odoba Abel Oche, the NYSC Oyo State Coordinator, praised the Corps members for their commendable behavior.

In the same vein, Mrs. Olayinka Nasamu, the NYSC Ogun State Coordinator, mentioned that a grand total of 2,350 Corps members have completed their registration. Ogun State has recorded 1,318 cases, while Lagos State has reported 1,032 cases.

“Ogun registered 496 male and 822 female while Lagos registered 414 male and 618 female”, Nasamu said.
