NYSC DG Urges Corps Members To Remain Security Conscious

(Last Updated On: 2021-09-22)


The Director-General, Brig.-Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim has advised corps members to remain security conscious throughout the service year, stating that the scheme was constantly working with security agencies to ensure their safety.

Ibrahim said this at the closing ceremony of the 2021 Batch ‘B’ Stream II Orientation Course which was held at the NYSC orientation camp, Kubwa, FCT.

“Let me stress that you must be security conscious at all times.

“In particular, I advise you to avoid risky engagements such as staying out late at night, attending late-night parties, visiting dangerous places, and accepting car rides from strangers.

“I implore you to shun drug abuse and trafficking, cybercrime, advanced-fee-fraud, and other vices. Do also remember that engagement in the local politics of your host communities is a no-go-area for you.

“Statistics by relevant agencies have shown that night travel is a major risk factor for a road traffic accident and such accidents occurring at night, renders rescue efforts fruitless.”

1,344 corps members registered for the 2021 Batch ‘B’ stream II service year and participated in the orientation course.

The corps members are expected to receive their letters of posting after the orientation and commence the primary assignments immediately.
