Following the death of a Corps member, Miss. Amakor Lilian Nkechi in Taraba of Lassa fever in February this year, the State Coordinator of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Mrs. Altine Akyam on Friday said they have fumigated the Camp and the State Secretariat ahead of resumption of orientation course next Tuesday.
Akyam disclosed this while briefing journalists on the preparedness of the State Secretariat to welcome Corps members for the 2017 Batch “A” orientation course.
Akyam who said they were expecting 2,400 Corps members noted that they have put in place a good medical team to take care of the health of Corps members during orientation.
She noted that the Director General of NYSC has approved a course on Corps welfare which is currently going on in Abuja, all in a bid to enhance the welfare and well-being of Corps members.
The State Coordinator who appealed to Corps employers to take the welfare of Corps members seriously urged prospective Corps members to adhere to the instructions contained in their call up letters for a smooth orientation course.
“I want to appeal to the people of Taraba to accord the prospective Corps members a warm reception.
“Most of them would be coming to Taraba for the first time and I urge the people of the State especially road workers to treat Corps members with love as they arrive”, she appealed.
