The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has deployed 1,400 corps members to Gombe state for this year’s Batch B Stream II orientation course.
Its coordinator in the state, Mr David Markson, stated this in a press statement signed by the head of public relations, Margaret Dakama, on Friday in Gombe.
Markson said the orientation course at the NYSC temporary orientation camp, Science Technical College, Amada, would last for three weeks.
According to him, registration and documentation of the prospective corps members will commence at the camp on August 20 and will last till midnight of August 21.
“Prospective corps members are, therefore, expected to report to camp in time before the portal closes. The swearing in ceremony would be on 22 August 22, 2019, and closing ceremony is September 9, 2019.
“In the same vein, management of the scheme has observed the growing trend of defacement of the NYSC uniform and improper dressing by corps members. “Prospective corps members are advised not to deface the uniform either by slim-fitting, use of rubber band at the helm of the khaki trouser or cutting it to three-quarter.
“They must be ready to be properly dressed for all occasions and functions as leaders of tomorrow and role models to millions of youth in the country,” the statement read in part.
