“Shun Cultism, Drug Abuse”- NYSC DG, Yusha’u Ahmed, Warns Corpers

Brig-Gen. Yusha’u Ahmed, the National Youth Service Corps director-general, issued a warning to the 2023 Batch ‘B’ Stream One corps members on Friday to abstain from cultism and drug usage, especially in the orientation camp.

He emphasised that anyone found to have broken the rules and regulations of the plan will face commensurate punishment. In order to have a good service year, he also advised the corps members to get familiar with the regulations of the NYSC Act and the NYSC bylaws.

In a countrywide speech to the corps members on Friday, Ahmed issued the warning. The members had just started their orientation exercises around the nation. According to Yusha’u Ahmed, breaking the dress code of the programme will result in penalties under the terms of the NYSC Act.

He stated-

“You must adhere to all camp rules and be obedient to the course officials. Let me also warn you that vices such as cultism and drug abuse are strictly prohibited on camp.

“For the avoidance of doubt, any violation of the dress code will attract appropriate sanctions as spelt out in the NYSC Act. I enjoin you to adhere to the official dress code for corps members and not only must you dress well, but also ensure you adorn the right kits for every occasion.”

Yusha’u Ahmed also cautioned the corps members to make the most of the program’s four cardinal components, including orientation, primary assignment, community development service, and passing out/winding up activities, in order to fulfil their share of their responsibility for contributing to national development.

While this is going on, Dr Ahmed Aliyu, the governor of Sokoto State, has promised corps members sent to the state that they will have enough protection during their service year.

At the opening of the 2023 batch ‘B’ stream 1 on Friday at the Wamakko permanent orientation camp, he said-

“Let me reiterate the commitment of our administration to accord priority to the security of corps members posted to the state.”

He emphasised that his administration will keep using state resources to their fullest potential in order to assist NYSC initiatives. He admonished them to adopt an attitude of restraint and tolerance and take part in all camp activities.
