NYSC Suspends Orientation Programmes in Six States Over Ebola

LAGOS AUGUST 15TH (URHOBOTODAY)-The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) on Thursday announced the suspension of scheduled stream two orientation programmes of the 2014 Batch ‘B’ Orientation Course in six states of the federation billed to start on Monday September 1 as a result of the dreaded Ebola virus disease in the country.
The director general of the NYSC, Brig Gen Johnson Olawumi who announced this in Kubwa Orientation Camp in the Federal Capital Territory said the corps members deployed to Adamawa, Bauchi, Jigawa, Borno, Gombe, and Yobe States will be affected with this directive.

Olawumi however assured the prospective corps members that they would not suffer unduly as the NYSC would ensure that they were not cheated in any way by staying longer than necessary at home.
It would be recalled that the Stream Two exercise, meant for the affected northern states, is scheduled for Monday, September 1, to Monday, September 22.
Corps members posted to Adamawa State will have their orientation programme in Niger; Bauchi corps members are expected to resume in Plateau State orientation camp, while those posted to Borno State are to proceed to the Nasarawa State camp.
Other affected states are Gombe, where corps members are expected to serve in Benue, with Jigawa State corps members expected to have their orientation programme in Kaduna.
Corps members posted to Yobe State are expected to resume at the Federal Capital Territory Orientation camp.
