Stop posting camp activities on social media – NYSC DG warns corps members

The Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier General Yushau Ahmed, has issued a stern warning to corps members against sharing camp activities on social media.

During a visit to the NYSC Orientation Camp in Ede, Osun, on Friday, July 5, Ahmed emphasized that posting camp events on social media violates the scheme’s standing rules and policies.

He urged corps members to maintain good character and discipline throughout the three-week orientation exercise. He also encouraged them to stay focused and take full advantage of the skills acquisition program offered in the camp.

“The skills acquisition program is designed to make you self-reliant and not dependent on white-collar jobs,” Ahmed stated. “We are collaborating with stakeholders to provide grants, so please take this opportunity seriously.”

The Director-General assured corps members of their safety and security, stressing that camp officials would not assign them to unsafe locations. “Your safety is our priority. Be vigilant and take precautionary measures to stay safe,” he added.

Ahmed also advised the corps members to maintain high standards of hygiene to avoid contracting diseases, particularly cholera. He encouraged them to be exemplary ambassadors of the NYSC wherever they are posted.

“We want you to be good ambassadors wherever you are posted in the country,” Ahmed concluded.
