Weetalknaija Daily Post reports that the Federal Government led by President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday asked the Management of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) to begin preparing for the resumption of Orientation tasks, with a hint that it may get the go-ahead in the next four weeks.

It also hinted that orientation may start after the completion of the newly approved eased lockdown, which lasts for another 4 weeks.
Coordinator of the Covid-19 Presidential Taskforce, Sani Aliyu, disclosed this during the press briefing on Thursday.

He said:

“We have advised the National Youth Service Corps to start planning ahead of resumption in future phases, but not within this current phase of the response.
“We will work closely with them to design policies that may allow this to happen in the future.”

This development is coming after NYSC has extended registration for 2020 Batch ‘A’ Stream II.

“This is to inform 2020 Batch ‘A’ Stream II Prospective Corps Members that Online Registration has been extended to Tuesday 11th August 2020,” NYSC stated.

Furthermore, Aliyu maintained that only existing classes (primary 6, JSS 3, and SS3), primary and nursery schools to remain closed and tertiary institutions should also remain closed.

“All daycare and primary schools are to remain closed till further evacuation, however, while primary schools must remain closed, the registered pupil may proceed to take the national common entrance as soon as it is feasible.

“For secondary and Tertiary Institutions, just to clarify, these remains closed; however, we have made arrangements for existing classes in their final years of schools to resume and partake in examination in line with guidelines,” he said.
