FG threatens to shut down NYSC camps over COVID-19
The Federal Government on Monday threatened to shut down any National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Orientation Camp where the state government does not comply with all the COVID-19 protocols.
The Minister of Youths and Sports, Sunday Dare, gave the warning at the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 briefing in Abuja.
He said over 700 corps members out of 22,000 youths tested for COVID-19 had tested positive for the virus.
The minister urged the corps members to comply with the COVID-19 protocols in order to check the spread of the virus in camps.
Dare said: “Any orientation camp that is not obeying the protocol will simply be closed as the NYSC cannot afford to risk the lives and health of corps members.”
