Following the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, closing orientation ceremony for 2021, Batch C, Stream 1, the NYSC Director-General, Shuaib Ibrahim has reportedly stated that it is an offence for corp members to paint the scheme and nation bad on social media.
This was reportedly disclosed by Eddy Megwa, the Lagos State NYSC coordinator, who represented the DG at the passing-out of the 2,015 corps members.
According to him, “It is not in your place to go into the social media to paint the scheme which you are part and parcel bad, but you are rather expected to use the platform to your credit and NYSC. It is, therefore, an offence to have any corps member to go into the social media space to paint the scheme or nation at large in a bad note.”
He further warned that “Avoid travelling as much as you can, and in case you are on transit and is getting late after 6:00 p.m, please endeavour to pass the night there and save your life.”
