Here we take out time to listed out 10 basic things, you need to know when NYSC Camp reopen for eventual corps members.
- Return of Batch ‘A’ Stream
The NYSC Director-General Ibrahim Shauibu has said in several occasions that Batch A Stream 1 Corps members will return to orientation camps to complete their training.
Therefore, if you are one of the Batch ‘A’ Stream 1 Corps members, get ready to return to orientation camp.
If you have been relocated to a new state, you will return to the Orientation camp in the new state.
2. Reduction in Number of Corps members
The NYSC Kastina and Imo have hinted that the normal number of Corps members per camp will reduce.
Meanwhile, we don’t know what NYSC is planning to do in regarding the number intake, but you don’t expect the normal number if COVID-19 protocols must be maintained.
3. Social Distancing
There will be strict social distancing order in the NYSC camp. For example, the hostel’s beds (BUNKS) will be adequately spaced; let’s say, not less than 6 feet unlike before that there used to be little or no space.
4. No fun and enjoyment
Do not expect fun like before, there is no fun in social distancing and wearing of the face mask. Soldiers and NYSC ofﬁcials will ensure that corps members maintain all the coridl9 protocols, which means no fun or enjoyment before.
5. Too many Streams and Batches
NYSC is likely to have multiple Streams and Batches since close to half of the normal number of Corps members will be admitted.
Therefore, there must be multiple Streams and Batches if NYSC must meet up to absorb large number of Nigerian graduates into National Service.
6. No Fake Graduate
The NYSC DG hates fake graduates. This time he will fight and prosecute fake graduates like never to ensure only genuine graduates are occupied the little space in camp.
7. No Posting and Redeployment Runs
Those of you that are planning to inﬂuence your posting to choice states with money will fail as Brig. Gen. Ibrahim Shauibu has zero tolerance to corruption. He will use red eye this time. Be warned!
8. Dryness in Mammy Market
The Mammy Market (camp market) which makes NYSC camp lively is likely to dry off as only few traders will be allocated entrance in camp.
9. Fear and speculation
There will be fear that COVID-19 may spread in orientation camp or things may not work as expected.
