The Director-General, National Youth Service Corps, Brig.-Gen. Yusha’u Ahmed, on Friday warned the 2023 Batch ‘B’ Stream One corps members to stay away from cultism and drug abuse, especially in the orientation camp.
He stressed that anyone who violates the scheme’s rules and regulations would be appropriately sanctioned. He also urged the corps members to familiarise themselves with the provisions of the NYSC Act and the NYSC bylaws in order to have a successful service year.
Ahmed gave the warning on Friday in a nationwide address to the corps members, who recently began their orientation exercise across the country. He said violation of the scheme’s dress code would attract sanctions as stated in the NYSC Act.
He added, “You must adhere to all camp rules and be obedient to the course officials. Let me also warn you that vices such as cultism and drug abuse are strictly prohibited on camp.
“For the avoidance of doubt, any violation of the dress code will attract appropriate sanctions as spelt out in the NYSC Act. I enjoin you to adhere to the official dress code for corps members and not only must you dress well, but also ensure you adorn the right kits for every occasion.”
