The Director General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier General YD Ahmed, has advised Corps Members to abide by the rules and regulations of the scheme and serve their fatherland with good conduct.

News About Nigeria reports that this was contained in a statement released by Eddy Megwa, director of Press and Public Relations.

Speaking to the 2024 Batch ‘B’ Stream One Corps Members in Edo and Delta States Orientation Camps, the Director General warned them against engaging in social vices such as hard drug consumption, fraud, cybercrimes, and hooliganism, which can jeopardise their future.

He encouraged the Corps Members to participate in all camp activities designed to make them better citizens and to be security conscious of their environments.

He also emphasised the importance of maintaining a clean and hygienic environment within and outside the Orientation Camp to stay healthy.

In her briefing to the Director General, the Edo State Coordinator, Mrs Ben-Ushie Frances, reported that 1,478 Corps Members have been making meaningful contributions to the success of the Orientation Course.

Similarly, the NYSC Delta State Coordinator, Mr Olusegun Alao, informed the Director General that 1,933 Corps Members have been registered, with a high level of discipline and cordial relationship among all camp officials.

The Director General’s visit to the Orientation Camps is aimed at familiariding himself with the Corps Members and encouraging them to embrace the values of the NYSC scheme.

In another development, the National Youths Service Corps (NYSC) disclaimed reports that the federal government has increased remuneration for corps members.

Nigerians who completed bachelor’s degrees or its equivalent under the age of 30 are mandated by law to participate in the one-year NYSC scheme. They are currently being paid N33,000 monthly allowance.
