Will NYSC Orientation Camp Reopen in next two weeks? This appears to be the most frequently asked question by Corps members this week.
However, the Director-General of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim has said the orientation camp would reopen as soon as the federal government gives them a nod to resume.
In a live programme held yesterday at ‘Armed Forces Radio 107.7 FM Abuja’, the DG stated that 2020 batch ‘A’ Stream 1 would return to camp immediately the Federal Government give the scheme a green light to resume activities.
Meanwhile, on Sunday (9th August), ‘The Nation Newspaper’ reported that NYSC is preparing to reopen Katsina Orientation camp in next two weeks, quoting a source from NYSC Directorate.
Also, the Vanguard Newspaper on Monday (10th August) reported that another source from NYSC Abuja headquarters disclosed that the management of NYSC is on a move to reopen orientation camp this month.
Vanguard newspaper reports as follows;
“National Youth Service Corps, NYSC has commenced preparations for reopening of the suspended orientation camps this month.
“A source at the NYSC National Directorate confirmed this development to Vanguard yesterday (Sunday 9th) after reaching the decision to reopen camp during its management meeting in Abuja – To get the full details of this news, check Vanguard Newspaper published on 10th August – page 7.

Will NYSC Orientation Camp Reopen in next two weeks?
There is no direct answer to this question now, since the NYSC Social media handler keep digressing from the question. When the question was directed to the handler, they neither debunk nor confirm the news of camp reopening in next two weeks (or this month), rather they digressed.
A Corps member with user name, Mukhtar Yola asked “Pls National Youth Service Corps – NYSC, how true is the NYSC will open in d next 2weeks”
But NYSC response is: Mukhtar Yola, NYSC is interfacing with the NCDC and PTF with regards to the COVID-19 safety protocols to ensure that everything is put in place before camp reopens.
