Osun: NYSC charges corps members to obey COVID-19 protocols as orientation exercise begins


The Osun State Coordinator of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Ayodele Adegoke has expressed optimism that the start of another orientation exercise would afford the NYSC the opportunity to mentor and mould young people into becoming productive members of the society.

This is as he charged prospective corps members to be open-minded to learn and always cultivate the habit of asking questions in times of doubt.

Adegoke gave this charge while welcoming the first set of corps members for the 2021 Batch A, Stream II orientation course Tuesday at the NYSC Orientation Camp, Ede, Osun State.

The state coordinator said the directive to commence orientation for the prospective corps members was issued by the NYSC National Directorate Abuja.

As a safety precaution, the Osun State NYSC Coordinator also charged the prospective corps members deployed to the state to always obey the rules and regulations as it relates to the COVID-19 pandemic.

He stated that maintaining social distancing, washing of hands under running water, use of alcohol-based hand sanitisers and obeying the safety protocols as laid down by the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) was still the gold standard in keeping the deadly pandemic at bay.

To ensure that the camp was kept healthy in readiness for the orientation exercise, he revealed that the Federal Fire Service had decontaminated the orientation camp after which it was fumigated to get rid of reptiles, mosquitoes, flies and other harmful insects which may threaten the wellbeing of course participants.

The State Coordinator said the decontamination carried out earlier was to rid the camp of viruses to forestall the outbreak of the COVID-19.
