The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has been asked to start making preparations to reopen its orientation camps nationwide.

Orientation camps across the country had been shut in March as part of measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus disease.

The National Coordinator of the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19, Dr Sani Aliyu, who spoke during a briefing at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja, on Thursday said the task force was in the process of developing “strict guidelines” to forestall the outbreak of infections when NYSC camps reopen.

“For the National Youth Service Corps, the NYSC is to consolidate on safety measures currently being put in place and start preparing for the reopening of orientation camps when educational institutions open.

“We are in the process of developing strict guidelines to ensure there is no outbreak of Covid-19 when this process starts.”

The NYSC Director-General, Brig. General Shuaibu Ibrahim was recently quoted as having said that the scheme had embarked on measures to enable safe and efficient conduct of its operations as soon as FG approved the reopening of its camps.

“Conscious of the possibility of the further or complete lifting of lockdown, the strategies mapped out by the NYSC management had taken care of various scenarios and would be presented to the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 through the Nigeria Centre for Disease Centre for guidance,” Ibrahim had said.
