“Management hereby restates its commitment to ensuring that no Corps Member is defrauded by these online advertisers.

“Similarly, efforts are ongoing with the security agencies to apprehend and prosecute the faceless individuals behind these ignominious acts.

“The Director General of NYSC, Brigadier General YD Ahmed wishes all the Prospective Corps Members and Camp Officials a safe trip to camp, and a successful 2024 Batch ‘A’ Orientation Course”.
