Post Camp Pictures On Social Media, Get Expelled, NYSC Warns Corp Members

The Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Brigadier General Yushau Ahmed has warned corps members to desist from posting orientation camp activities on social media platforms.

Ahmed who issued the warning while addressing corps members deployed to Osun State for the Batch B Stream I national service at the NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp in Ede on Friday, stated that it was an offense to do so, adding that if caught, such corps members will be decamped.

“It is an offense to carry activities of the camp and post on social media. The penalty is that such corps members will be decamped,” he said.

He also urged the corps members to respect the culture and norms of the communities they are deployed to so as to enable them enjoy their stay in the area.

“Respect other people’s opinions and thoughts, cultures, values and norms of the communities where you are deployed to serve,” he said.

He also urged them to obtain permission before traveling, while calling on them to avoid frequent traveling.

“Obtain permission before you travel and don’t travel by night. Once it is 6pm, break your journey and continue the following day.

“Never joke with your personal security. Always abide by the advice of the camp officials. NYSC will never post you to unsafe places and don’t put yourselves in unnecessary danger.

“You must listen and guard yourself against danger because your parents have invested heavily in you.

“Stay safe and do everything to remain safe,” he said.

Ahmed advised the corps members to stay where they are deployed and create a path for themselves instead of redeploying.

He charged the corps members to guard against Cholera and remain clean at all times.

“You must remain clean. Ensure you wash your hands as much as possible,” he said.
