Consequent upon the increasing rate of Coronavirus (COVID-19) disease cases in Nigeria, the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has suspended the ongoing orientation course for the 2020 Batch “A” Stream 1 corps members across the country.

Mr. Adenike Adeyemi, Director, Press and Public Relations, NYSC, in a statement Wednesday morning said: “Sequel to the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic, which led to the cancellation of the National Sports Festival, Management of the National Youth Service Corps scheme wishes to announce the suspension of the ongoing Orientation course for the 2020 Batch ‘A’ Stream 1 Corps members.

“Therefore, the Corps members shall be posted to commence their primary assignments forthwith, while they shall be invited back to the orientation camps when the situation improves.”

The statement also likened the current situation to what happened a few years ago when the nation was confronted by the Ebola virus threat.

“The Management wishes to state that no Corps member or camp official has contracted the virus,” said Mr. Adeyemi in the statement.
