Plateau NYSC orientation camp has been relocated by the officials of the scheme. This is in a bid to protect the lives of Nigerian youth, as a result of recent killings reported in the state. A recent attack in Mangu Local Government Area in the state claimed many lives. To avert any further danger to human lives, this significant change has become necessary, in fact a must-do.
Therefore, the NYSC 2023 Batch B Stream One members will use Waye Foundation as an interim camp location. The interim Plateau NYSC orientation camp is in Buken Academy Doi-Du, in Jos South LGA of Plateau State. Interestingly, this is within the state capital. Eddy Megwa, NYSC’s Director of Press and Public Relations, issued a statement on Monday. Mr. Megwa informed the general public, especially potential corps members, about the new location.
As the statement explained, the orientation course for prospective corps members will not hold there until further notice. This is due to the recent attacks in Mangu Local Government Area where the permanent orientation camp is located.
Eddy Megwa further highlighted that “All prospective corps members are by this information expected to report at the new orientation camp (Waye Foundation by Buken Academy) on the dates specified in their call-up letters.
“The decision to change the venue of the orientation camp effectively demonstrates the authorities’ commitment to the safety and well-being of corps members.
“By relocating to a more secure area, the NYSC aims to lessen potential risks and establish a conducive environment for the corps members to undergo their orientation training.
“The NYSC remains unwavering in its dedication to the safety and well-being of corps members.”
Since 1973, polytechnic and university graduates mandatorily participate in the one-year National Youth Service Corps program. The Nigerian government started the NYSC program in the military era. The aim of the program is to include Nigerian graduates in nation-building and the advancement of the country.
