BREAKING: Global Pandemic, As NYSC Shuts Down All Orientation Camps Nationwide, Orders Corps Members To Leave

The National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, has abruptly ended its activities at Orientation Camps across the country.

The Batch A Orientation Camps for graduates started last week, March 10, and were supposed to last for 21 days.

Corps members in the Camps were however, shocked when they were told in the middle of the night, that the camps had closed, and all asked to leave to their places of primary assignment.

The Corps members stated that they were told that this was due to the coronavirus crisis.

“We started receiving letters to our Places of Primary Assignment, PPA, at about 1am, today”, a Corps member serving in Jos, Plateau State, said.
Another Corps member serving in Gombe State, revealed that they started receiving their PPA letters very early, on Wednesday.

The decision may have been influenced by yesterday’s resolution of the Presidential Task Force, that large public gatherings should be discouraged across the country.

The Task Force also banned Foreign Trips for Public Officials, but did not restrict travels to Nigeria from countries with high cases of coronavirus.

It only said that travellers from such countries, would be on self-quarantine for 14 days, during which they would be monitored.

The 11-member Task Force, headed by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Boss Mustapha, announced its resolutions on Tuesday night, after a meeting, in Abuja.

Nigeria has currently confirmed three cases of the coronavirus, and no deaths recorded so far.

The virus has killed over 7,000 people globally, mainly in China, Italy, Iran, and South Korea.
