With the sad memory of the drowned young men and women still fresh in the mind, Brig. Gen. Sule Kazaure, the Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, has warned corps members against the dangers of embarking on unnecessary journeys.

Mrs. Clara Anekwe, the Director Certification at the NYSC delivered Kazaure’s message while representing him at a visit to the orientation camp of Batch “B” 2018 corps members deployed to Abia.

Anekwe appealed to corps members to avoid such journeys if they were not important.

She noted that the scheme had lost a lot of corps members in the past to such incidents and would not allow such occurrence any longer.

“We have put a lot in training you. If that journey is unavoidable, please obtain permission before leaving. In these days of uncertainty, tell somebody where you are going,” she said.

She equally urged them to respect the culture and tradition of the people where they were being posted to serve.

She regretted the death of nine corps members who got drowned in a Taraba river while on a picnic at the weekend.

She told corps members to be careful about where they do their picnics or birthday parties.

“If possible don’t go close to the rivers. Please avoid those dangerous areas,” she said.
