No entry without COVID-19 vaccine card: NYSC warns prospective corps members



THE National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has warned that only fully vaccinated Prospective Corps Members (PCMs) will be allowed to register and partake in the scheme.

  The Scheme’s Coordinator in Bauchi, Namadi Abubakar, said this on Tuesday in Bauchi adding that 1,700 Corps members were deployed to Bauchi State for the 2022 Batch ‘A’ Stream 1 Orientation Course.

  Abubakar said the orientation exercise would hold from Feb. 23 to March 15, at the NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp, Wailo in Ganjuwa Local Government Area of the state.

  He said that prospective Corps members would only be allowed into the camp after being certified COVID-19 negative by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

  The Coordinator said that any Corps member who tested positive for COVID-19 would be referred to the NCDC isolation centre outside the camp for treatment.

  “Only 200 persons would be registered per day, while registration dates have been assigned to each prospective Corps member to avoid overcrowding.

  “Participants are advised to adhere strictly to the COVID-19 safety measures put in place by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 and the NCDC.

  “All the corps members need to be punctual, diligent, and should comply with the camp’s acceptable dress code,” he said.

  Abubakar, however, warned that defaulters would be sanctioned in accordance with the NYSC bylaws.

  He added that the negligence of the dressing code would not be tolerated.
