“Management of the scheme has observed the growing trend of defacement of the NYSC uniform and improper dressing by Corps members. In view of that, Prospective Corps Members are advised not to deface the uniform either by slim fitting, use of rubber band at the helm of the khaki trouser or cutting it to ‘three quarter’. They must be ready to be properly dressed for all occasions and function as leaders of tomorrow and role models to millions of youth in the country,” she said.

Speaking further, Imoni said: “You are to also come prepared to observe the COVID-19 safety measures of regular use of the face mask, washing of hands under running water, and use of alcohol-based sanitizers. With strict adherence to the COVID-19 safety measures, we can mitigate the risk of transmission of the virus on camp.”
