Director-General of National Youths Service Corps (NYSC), Brig.-Gen. Johnson Bamidele, has warned corps members across Nigeria to desist from unnecessary and all unauthorised journeys

Bamidele gave the warning when he addressed 2015 Batch B, stream 2 corps members at the NYSC permanent orientation camp in Wamakko on Friday.

The corps members are undergoing three-week orientation.

Bamidele, represented by Mr Yakubu Jok, Director of Special Duties, said some corps members lost their lives in auto crashes in recent times.

“This is a nationwide phenomenon which must urgently stop and corps members should only travel when it is necessary and approved.

“My visit to the camp in Sokoto is to see the conditions of the corps members, assess their comfort and security level.

“I am assuring the corps members across Nigeria that the Federal Government, management of the scheme and State Governments are fully committed to their welfare.”

Bamidele charged the corps members to continue to be disciplined and law abiding

He also admonished them to respect the religions and cultures of their host communities.

State Coordinator of the scheme, Mr Thomas Yamma commended the DG for the visit and extolled the level of discipline exhibited by the corps members.

Yamma implored the corps members to stay in Sokoto, especially those seeking relocation, saying, “Sokoto is a peaceful and hospitable state.” (NAN)
