The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has dismissed reports that its orientation Course will resume 27th October 2020 with Batch “A” Stream 2 and that the batch has been subdivided into Batches “A” and “B”.
9ja today understands that the organisation dismissed these speculations in a statment by the Director of Press and Public Relations at the NYSC, Mrs. Adenike Adeyemi in Abuja on Saturday. She described it as fake adding that there is no official date for the reopening of camps nationwide.
According to the statement, “It is imperative to state that the Scheme has ensured that all the COVID-19 safety protocols incidental to safe hosting of Orientation programmes are in place in all its 37 Orientation Camps.
“Note also that some precautionary safety measures already adopted by the Scheme had earned it the commendation of the PTF.
“While the NYSC sincerely appreciates the patience so far shown by the PCMs who have waited for over six months to be called-up for participation in the Scheme, it equally empathises with them over the unanticipated disruption of their programmes, resulting from COVID-19 pandemic”.
