The Federal government is considering suspending the National Youth Service Corps orientation camp exercise for two years.
The committee asked the federal government to halt the camp exercise as part of measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
The report as quoted by TheCable reads, “The immediate focus in the Education sector is to address the disruptions caused by the pandemic and ensuing social distancing measures at all levels of education.
“Practical steps will be taken to minimise disruption to learning, utilising technology as appropriate. Specifically, virtual learning will be implemented (either online or through broadcast), virtual convocation ceremonies or issuance of certificates (with postponed ceremonies) should be implemented to continue educational progression.
“In similar context, consideration will be given to suspending the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Orientation Camp Exercises for at least 24 months while allowing deployment to places of primary assignment.
“This will ensure that there is no backlog in the National Service placement pipeline.”
The Federal Government had on March 18 shut down all orientation camps in the country to curb the spread of coronavirus.
