NYSC clears air on reported change of Corps members uniform

The National Service Corps, NYSC, has reacted to a trending social media video which depicts a change of Corps Members’ uniform to a new one.

The NYSC said all the items that Corps members receive on arrival during registration at the Orientation Camps remain the same.

The NYSC Director of Information and Public Relations, Eddy Megwa, in a statement said, “Members of the public, especially Prospective Corps members are hereby advised to disregard the misleading and highly embarrassing tiktok video in its entirety, as efforts are ongoing on the distribution of uniforms and other essential variables to all the 37 NYSC Orientation Camps across the country in preparation for the forthcoming 2024 Batch ‘B’ Stream One Orientation Course,”

“Recently, the Federal Government approved the improvement in the quality of the material used in sewing Corps Members’ uniforms.

“This is already done and Corps Members are already enjoying the improved quality.

“Social Media Influencers are strongly warned to desist forthwith, from using NYSC Corporate brand in any online medium that may attract negative publicity to the Scheme, while defaulters would be prosecuted according to legal provisions.’
