The National Youth Service Corps NYSC has suspended its weekly Community Development Service CDS activity for serving corps members nationwide until further notice.
In a statement signed by the NYSC Director of Human Resource Management, Abdulrazak Salawu, the weekly CDS activity was suspended because of the increasing cases of Covid-19.
The Local Government Inspectors LGI in various states across the country were also directed to immediately comply with the directive.
The statement reads: “Sequel to the pandemic of coronavirus globally and management’s concern for the wellbeing of corp members nationwide, I am directed to inform you to suspend all Community Development Service activities until further notice.
“This obvious course of action is directed by circumstances beyond our control.
“The sudden changes in many countries warranting social changes between persons and isolation of persons on account of COVID-19 present no other option but to stop CDS activities because of a large number of persons in close contact.
“With the abundance of caution, avoidance of errors is easily achievable.”
The NYSC had previously shut down its orientation camp nationwide as measures to contain the rising cases of the deadly coronavirus which records stood at 12 as at Thursday March 19; including imported and locally transmitted cases.
