The Director-General of National Youths Service Corps (NYSC), Brig. Gen Suleiman Kazaure has advised corps members to desist from unnecessary and unauthorized travelling.
Kazaure gave the advice on Tuesday during a facility tour at the Temporary orientation Camp, kaiama, Kolokuma/Opokuma Local Government Area of Bayelsa.
He said the visit and inspection of the camp was part of his 2017 camp tour to assess corps members’ comfort and security.
Recall that 2017 Batch ‘B’ Stream 1 corps members are currently undergoing their three weeks orientation.
The director-general addressing the corps members, said many members had died in auto crash in the journey which they embark on withoutout permit during their service year.
He, therefore, insisted that proper permission and documentation should be done before undertaking any journey while in camp or their place of primary assignment.
“Before embarking on any journey while in camp or places of your primary assignment, NYSC members should obtain permission because there are sanctions for not doing so.
“Members only travel when it is necessary and approved; my visit to the camp here in Bayelsa is to see the condition of corps members.
“I am assuring corps members, not only in bayelsa but across the country that the management of the scheme and state governments are fully committed to their welfare.”
