The Director General of National Youth Service Corps, Brigadier General YD Ahmed has warned Corps Members to avoid every form of misconduct that may lead them into trouble during their service year.
He added that violators of NYSC byelaws and other laws of the country would be sanctioned appropriately.
The Director General stated this in his address to Corps Members during his visit to NYSC Kano State Orientation Camp in Kusallah Dam Karaye and Katsina State Orientation Camp.
While congratulating them on the successful completion of their courses of study, he added that improper dressing in NYSC uniforms attracts sanctions.
“You must always dress well, especially while in NYSC uniforms. Wherever you are posted to, ensure that you respect the culture and traditions of the people you are going to serve.
“NYSC would not condone any form of indiscipline. Avoid hard drugs, hooliganism, cybercrimes and other social vices that may put you in trouble. Utilize the service year to develop yourselves”, the DG said.
