Suspend NYSC camps for two years says VP osinbajo
The Economic Sustainability Committee (ESC) chaired by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has advised the Federal government to suspend NYSC camp for two years.
As a result of the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic that is ravaging Nigeria, the federal government has been urged to consider suspending for two years the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) orientation camp exercise.
The Committee made the recommendation in a report presented to President Muhammadu Buhari last week, the committee recommended the consideration of suspension of NYSC camps for 24 months, as part of measures to contain the spread of the novel Coronavirus in the country. .
“The immediate focus in the Education sector is to address the disruptions caused by the pandemic and ensuing social distancing measures at all levels of education,” the report read.
Practical steps will be taken to minimise disruption to learning, utilising technology as appropriate. Specifically, virtual learning will be implemented (either online or through broadcast), virtual convocation ceremonies or issuance of certificates (with postponed ceremonies) should be implemented to continue educational progression.
In similar context, consideration will be given to suspending the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Orientation Camp Exercises for at least 24 months while allowing deployment to places of primary assignment. This will ensure that there is no backlog in the National Service placement pipeline.” the committee report states
