The Director General of the National Youth Service Corps, Brig. Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim has warned prospective Corps Members not to endanger themselves with unauthorized journey under the guise of religion.
He urged them not to go outside their jurisdiction of posting for religious activities.
He stated this during an unscheduled visit to Kaduna State Orientation Camp while addressing the early arrivals among the 2019 Batch ‘B’ Stream Two prospective Corps Members.
He said, “Please don’t make yourself available to kidnappers and don’t endanger your safety. Be conscious of your religious activities with the laid down rules in NYSC.”
He urged them to uphold the ideals of teamwork, discipline, patriotism and loyality during and after their Orientation period.
The stern warning by the NYSC DG is not unconnected with the death of 3 corps members who were involved in a road accident on Sunday, while traveling from Katsina to Funtua to attend a wedding.
About 14 others were injured and being hospitalised.
