NYSC DG sends strong warning to corps members


Brig. Gen. Sulaiman Kazaure, Director General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), on Thursday warned corps members against frequent trips during service year.

He spoke at the NYSC Permanent Orientation camp Afikpo, Ebonyi State.

Kazaure, represented by Mrs. Nnenna Ukonu, Director, NYSC Corps Mobilisation Department, lamented the number of deaths during travels in recent years.

“We have lost several corps members through unnecessary travelling as you should realise that your families are not running away and would be there for you after your service year,” she said.
