NYSC Deploys 1,689 Corps Members to Bauchi for 2023 Batch ‘C’ Stream II Orientation Exercise

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has deployed 1,689 corps members to Bauchi State for the 2023 Batch ‘C’ stream II orientation exercise.

Mrs. Rifkatu Yakubu, coordinator of the scheme in the state, said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Bauchi.

The deployment of corps members to various states across Nigeria is a tradition embedded in the ethos of the NYSC. It represents a unique opportunity for young graduates to engage in national service, fostering a sense of patriotism and understanding of the diverse cultures that make up the nation. Bauchi, a state rich in cultural heritage and historical significance, stands as an ideal location for such an orientation exercise.

In her interview with NAN, Mrs. Rifkatu Yakubu, the coordinator of the NYSC in Bauchi State, highlighted the importance of the deployment. She emphasized that the orientation exercise goes beyond its immediate objective of preparing corps members for the challenges of the service year; it also serves as a platform for cultural exchange and community integration.

Logistics play a pivotal role in the successful execution of any NYSC orientation exercise. Mrs. Yakubu shed light on the meticulous planning involved in accommodating and catering to the needs of the incoming corps members. From accommodation facilities to healthcare services and security arrangements, every aspect is carefully orchestrated to ensure a smooth and enriching experience for the participants.

According to her, the orientation for the corps members will begin on Nov. 24 and end on Dec. 14 at the NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp, Wailo, in Ganjuwa Local Government Area of the state.

She explained that each of the prospective corps members would be allowed into the camp only after being certified.

The NYSC Coordinator said this was part of the security measures to ensure that there was no intrusion or impersonation of any corps members.

“Registration dates have been assigned to prospective corps members, and they are advised to adhere strictly to all camp’s rules and regulations.

“Defaulters will be sanctioned in accordance with the NYSC by-laws,” Yakubu said.

She also reiterated that the scheme frowned at late-night journeys, thereby urging prospective corps members to avoid it.

She advised them to be punctual and diligent and to comply with the camp’s acceptable dress code, adding that negligence of the NYSC dressing code would not be tolerated.
