Traveling without permission now attracts punishment – NYSC warns Corps members

Director General of the National Youth Service Corps, Brigadier General YD Ahmed has warned corps members against traveling without obtaining permission from the NYSC.

He issued the warning on Wednesday while addressing NYSC members during their 3- weeks orientation course in Oyo and Ogun states camp.

The DG said such act attracts punishment and sanctions, adding that no employer is allowed to grant permission to Corpers to travel.

Ahmed informed the Corps members that all services in NYSC are free and he warned that they should beware of online advertisers and fraudsters that may offer posting and redeployment to them for a fee.

The DG also implored the Corps members to adhere strictly to the NYSC dress code, adding that improper dressing in NYSC uniform attracts sanctions.

“Don’t dress anyhow. Dress as good ambassadors of NYSC and always abide by all NYSC rules and regulations.

“Respect the culture and tradition of your host communities when you leave camp. Make good impact on the communities and in your place of primary assignments”, he said.

The Director-General of the scheme further stated that efforts are still on-going towards the signing of the NYSC Trust Fund bill into law.

Ahmed urged the corps members to participate actively in all the camp activities and also ensure that they establish long lasting friendship among themselves before leaving the Orientation Camp.
