The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has deployed 1,691 prospective corps members in Bauchi State for the 2023 Batch ‘C’, Stream 1 orientation exercise.
Rifkatu Yakubu, coordinator of the scheme in Bauchi State, told the News Agency of Nigeria on Sunday in Bauchi that the exercise would begin on November 1 and end on November 21.
It would hold at the NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp at Wailo in Ganjuwa Local Government Area of the state, she said.
Ms Yakubu added that prospective corps members would be allowed into the camp only after certification to ensure that there was no intrusion or impersonation of any corps member and to ensure security.
“Registration dates have been assigned to each prospective corps member and they are advised to adhere strictly to all the camp rules and regulations.
“Defaulters will be sanctioned in accordance with the NYSC by-laws,” she said.
Ms Yakubu reiterated that the scheme frowned at late night journeys and urged prospective corps members to comply.
She also advised corps members to be punctual, diligent and to comply with the camp’s acceptable dress code, adding that violation of the dress code would not be tolerated.
