Recently, we have received the information of the reopening of NYSC CAMPS across Nigeria, it's not surprising due to the fact that prospective corp members have been agitating on social media and some have even pledged to abide by the regulations of the NCDC.
For the fact that the protocols set by NCDC are usually abused by a large number of people especially youth of between 15 to 35 years old.
It's our responsibility to ensure we stay safe to stay alive.
We also agree that opening up the camp's is necessary but necessary precautions should be strictly enforced.
1. THAT NCDC SHOULD RECRUIT AD-HOC STAFF TO ENFORCE THE GUIDELINES.
2. THAT NYSC DRASTICALLY REDUCE THE NUMBERS OF YOUTH CORP MEMBERS IN CAMPS.
3. THAT ALL PARTICIPANTS SHOULD BE EXAMINE PRIOR TO CAMP RESUMPTION.
It's however, our prayers that safety measures shall be enforced for the safety of the intending Corp members.
