Corps members’ death: NYSC says some deliberately conceal illnesses while registering for Service


Following the death of three members of the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, the scheme has called on corps members to always give correct information regarding their health status while registering for mobilization into the Scheme.

Recall that Ifedolapo Oladepo, who died at the NYSC orientation camp in Kano State on Tuesday was laid to rest on Thursday. 

The Scheme’s orientation camp in Kaiama, Kolokuma-Opokuma Local Government Area of Bayelsa state witnessed the death of another female member, Miss Elechi Chinyerem, aged 27.  while Udeme Monday died in Zamfara State. 

NYSC had expressed regret over the deaths and condoled the families of the three corps members who died during the on-gong 2016 Batch ‘B’ (Stream I) Orientation Course.

ddressing the 2016 Batch ‘B’ (Stream I) Corps members at the Orientation camps in Anambra and Delta States at the weekend, the NYSC Director-General, Brigadier General Sulaiman Kazaure explained that the essence of making provision for information on health status in the NYSC online registration process was to allow deployment of those with special health needs to their home states or locations of health facilities where they were receiving care.

The Director-General noted, however, that some prospective corps members deliberately conceal their illnesses while registering on the platform.
