The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has declared it a crime for corps members to trash the scheme and the country on social media, and has issued a warning.

The announcement was made by Brig.-Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim, NYSC Director-General, during the concluding ceremony of the orientation course for the 2021 Batch C, Stream 1 on Tuesday at NYSC Temporary Orientation Camp, Iyana-Ipaja, Lagos.

Ibrahim was represented during the passing-out of the 2,015 Corp members by Mr Eddy Megwa, Coordinator, NYSC Lagos Office, according to the Nigerian News Agency (NAN).

“It is not in your place to go into the social media to paint the scheme which you are part and parcel bad, but you are rather expected to use the platform to your credit and NYSC.

“It is, therefore, an offence to have any corps member to go into the social media space to paint the scheme or nation at large in a bad note,” he said.

“Avoid travelling as much as you can, and in case you are on transit and is getting late after 6:00 pm, please endeavour to pass the night there and save your life.

“Be reminded that it is no longer what you do as usual, the society of today is very very strong, don’t walk alone, I therefore call on you to be more security conscious,” he said.

“We expect you as you move to the larger society to showcase that you have been well trained and equipped to deliver your mandate in the service of your fatherland,” he said.

Ibrahim also entrusted the corps members with doing their tasks honestly and behaving well in their primary assignments.

Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Governor of Lagos State, was praised by the DG for his unwavering support and efforts to make the orientation camp a memorable experience for corps members.

He did, however, remind the governor of the ongoing permanent site in Agbowa, Ikorodu, as well as the fact that the temporary Iyana-Ipaja camp was rapidly becoming insufficient for corps personnel sent to the state.

Ibrahim, who praised Sanwo-Olu for his initiative, expressed optimism that the governor will speed up the process and have the permanent location ready soon.

He asked Lagos people to welcome corps members with open arms, and he urged landlords to reduce their lease rates to meet the corps members’ affordability during their one-year required duty.

During the three-week orientation camp, certain camp administrators were recognized for exceptional performance in the fulfillment of their responsibilities and administration of training to corps members, according to NAN.

The officials’ identities were given by Joyce Madaki, NYSC Lagos Office Assistant Director and Public Relations, as Capt. Auwal Buba (Camp Commandant), Warrant Officer Dimas Adeh, and others.
