The Economic Sustainability Committee (ESC), led by the Vice president Yemi Osinbajo have advised the president to suspend the Orientation camping of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) for two years.
The committee in its report stated that “The immediate focus in the Educational sector is to address the disruption caused by the Corona virus pandemic and ensure social distancing measures at all levels of education.”
It stated that “Practical steps will be taken to minimize disruption to learning while appropriating the utilization of technology.”
Furthermore, it stated that “Consideration will be given to suspending the Orientation camp exercise of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) for at least 24months, while allowing deployment to places of primary assignment”.
“This will ensure that there is no backlog in National service placement in the country”.
The committee also recommended virtual convocation ceremonies.
