Corps members assigned to Borno should have no concern because the state’s security situation has considerably improved, according to NYSC.
Muhammad Adamu-Jiya, the state’s NYSC Coordinator, announced this during the induction of 1,341 Batch ‘A’, Stream II corps members on Friday in Katsina.
Corps recruits sent to Borno are typically stationed in Katsina for their three-week orientation course due to the state’s Boko Haram conflict.
Mr Adamu-Jiya stated that the corps members should not be alarmed because peace has returned to Borno.
The coordinator stated that the NYSC camp in Borno will shortly reopen due to improved security.
During the service year, he warned the corps members to avoid cultism, drug abuse, cybercrime, and other negative tendencies.
“For a successful service year, corps members must use social media wisely and refrain from drug abuse and other crimes.”
“I also urge you to refrain from enforcing laws and to report any issues to the appropriate authorities for further action.”
Mr Adamu-Jiya also urged them to be mature in their interactions and good ambassadors for their families, communities, institutions, and the NYSC.
The coordinator ensured the corps members’ safety and well-being throughout their stay at the camp and the service year.
He praised the governments of Borno and Katsina for their unwavering support for the NYSC scheme.
Justice Abbas Bawale gave the Oath of Allegiance to the corps members.
