“We want to ensure that we adhere strictly to the non-pharmaceutical protocols of COVID-19.”
Ibrahim urged corps members to add value to themselves by acquiring skills that would make them business owners, instead of seeking for the scarcely available salaried jobs.
Corps members were also warned against embarking on the night and unauthorised journeys, but break any journey extending beyond 6:00 pm and pass the night in a safe place.
“We have NYSC Corps Lodges, Secretariats and Army barracks, find out where they are and make sure you pass the night there for journeys that will take you beyond six to get to your destination.”
