The Osun National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has charged prospective corps members posted to the state for the scheme to declare their health status for better management.
This was said by the state Coordinator of NYSC, Emmanuel Attah in an interview with newsmen in Osogbo, on the corps’ preparedness to accommodate and camp a new set of youth Corp members for the NYSC scheme.
According to him, the Osun NYSC orientation camp, located at Ede, would be opened on Tuesday through to Wednesday for the graduates posted to the state to report and register.
He added that the camp would be closed for registration by Wednesday midnight for the 21 days’ orientation, while registered members would be sworn in as 2018 Batch B corps members on Thursday.
He, therefore, appealed to graduates coming for NYSC not to hide their health status and avoid coming to the camp with fake medical certificate of fitness to deceive NYSC officials.
Attah said, “knowing their health status would help us to assist them properly.
“Their health condition would not stop them from serving their fatherland, but concealing their health condition would make it difficult for us to attend to them properly.”
