MESSAGE FROM THE NATIONAL YOUTH SERVICE CORPS TO ALL 2020 BATCH ‘A’ STREAM II PROSPECTIVE CORPS MEMBERS AS THEY PROCEED TO THE 37 NYSC ORIENTATION CAMPS NATIONWIDE
The Director-General, National Youth Service Corps, Brigadier General S Ibrahim DSS Ph.D. MTRCN heartily congratulates all prospective Corps Members of the 2020 Batch ‘A’ on their call-up to serve the Nation.
As you step on the threshold to commence service to the fatherland, starting with the Orientation course, it will be most appropriate to apprise you of the following travel guide which has been of immense benefit to your predecessors.
Every successful journey begins with adequate planning. Therefore, you should make adequate preparations for your journey.
Disregard information on the NYSC camping list from phantom sites purporting to be acting on behalf of the Scheme. The call-up letter should be your guide. Read the information contained on it critically, so as to be conversant with what and what not to take to the camp.
You must set out very early to the Orientation camps in order to get to your destinations on time, latest, 6 pm.
If the journey will take beyond 6 pm to arrive at your destination, kindly break the journey.
Ensure that you board a vehicle from the approved park. Doing otherwise may make you susceptible to robbery attacks, kidnapping, either for ransom or ritual, etc.
While on the journey, never receive edibles from strangers as the food may have been laced with a substance that will make you lose consciousness.
Be mindful of how you chat on the phone as you may unwittingly give out classified personal information to criminals posing as co-passengers, thereby putting yourself on harm’s way.
Avoid every form of discussion on politics, whether for or against any party. Such is capable of inflaming tempers.
Never get involved in discussion bordering on criminalities in the country: Boko Haram, robbery, kidnapping as you don’t know the people you are traveling with.
Keep your friends and family updated on your movement.
Keep your credentials secure. Preferably carry them on you.
Ensure that your traveling bags and luggage are locked and secured.
Never give your phone to a stranger to make calls. That person may be a kidnapper, robber or terrorist. Such a call can implicate you on what you know nothing about.
Write down emergency phone numbers.
Be aware of your clothing. Dress responsibly and in conformity with the culture/religion of the region, you have been deployed.
In the event of any untoward happening, don’t try to be a hero. Look for an escape route.
When you arrive at the Orientation camps, abide by all the rules and regulations guiding the NYSC camp.
May God protect you as you proceed to serve our dear country for twelve calendar months.
God bless you.
Funloaded Team wishes you journey mercies to your various Orientation Camps.
