NYSC orientation camps across the country will reopen when it is very safe to do so due to the COVID19 pandemic.
The NYSC management made the corresponding statement on Thursday, June 25, in Abuja, according to the News Agency of Nigeria.
A spokesman for the scheme, Adenike Adeyemi, dismissed a recent media report claiming that the NYSC was going to reopen orientation camps.
Adeyemi failed to report for hinting that the scheme will soon resume the orientation program.
She urged waiting Corps members to get information about the scheme only from official sources.
Meanwhile, after a spike in COVID-19 cases across the country, the Federal government hinted at another block, saying it was inevitable as States continue to see a spike in the number of daily injections.
Speaking at a briefing on Thursday, June 25, boss Mustafa, who is the Chairman of the presidential task force on COVID-19, said the idea of blocking may not be popular, but the surge in Coronavirus cases made it necessary.
Confirmed cases of C0VID-19 in Nigeria soared to 22,614 on Thursday, when the Nigerian Center for disease control announced 594 new cases with overall recoveries and deaths at 7,822 and 549 respectively.
Mustafa said Nigerians have been “romanticizing” the pandemic too much since the easing of the lockdown allowed businesses to come back to life.
The government’s efforts to fight the pandemic are being sabotaged by Nigerians, he said, and this has led to mass transmission in communities.
Mustafa warned against the carefree attitude of Nigerians and called on everyone to take responsibility, following the guidelines contained in the second phase of the blockade. Today I saw a real romance with COVID-19. People act as if the [virus] case is over.
This is a very serious problem and I appeal to Nigerians who listen to me, so let’s take this thing [the virus], ” Mustafa said in another news report.
The founder and leader of Perez Chapel International, Bishop Charles Agin-Asare, said that the Coronavirus is a satanic movement to keep people away from the Church.
A respected Ghanaian pastor made this statement during a recent sermon that was cut into a snippet making waves on social media.
In the footage, Bishop Agin-Asare told how he recently spoke with Archbishop Duncan-Williams, and they both discussed the impact of COVID-19 on Church activities.
