The National Youth Service Corps has slated, Thursday, 16th July, 2020 as Passing-out event for the 2019 Batch “B” Stream Two Corps Members nationwide.
The Director-General, National Youth Service Corps, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim salutes the out- going Corps Members for the service to the nation, and in particular for standing out to be counted in this time of national emergency, through the various interventions aimed at combating the spread of Coronavirus.
According to a press statement made available to LEADERSHIP by the Director, Press and Public Relations, Mrs Adenike Adeyemi which states that arising from the threat posed by COVID-19 pandemic, and as a precautionary measure, the event will be low-key, with qualified Corps Members collecting their Certificates of National Service (CNS) at the Local Government level.
Meanwhile, the distribution of the Certificate of National Service shall be staggered for a period of ten days in the first instance, in keeping with the safety measures established by Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
The DG charges the Corps Members to remain steadfast in rendering service to the nation and humanity, even after they have concluded their national assignment as that is the hallmark of the Corps.
The DG enjoins the 2019 Batch “B” Stream Two Corps Members to remain good ambassadors of the Scheme in their future endeavours.
“Finally, all Corps Members and NYSC stakeholders are advised to stay vigilant, in order to guard against the contraction of COVID-19. Therefore, all must ensure strict observance of the safety protocols, predicated on consistent use of face masks, proper washing of hands with soap for at least twenty seconds, use of alcohol-based sanitiser, and observing social/physical distancing.
” Together, we shall come out stronger in post COVID-19.”
