NYSC Reviews Policy On Fitness Of Corps Members


BY NGOZI NWANKWO, ABUJA – Following demands required in some of the activities of the NYSC Orientation programme, the Scheme has introduced the presentation of Certificate of Fitness from recognised public health facilities by prospective Corps members as basic requirement for registration at Orientation Camps.

The management of the Scheme said the essence of the new policy was to enable Camp Officials manage those who are not fit to undertake certain activities in the Camp.

It explained that policy before it was reviewed was largely misunderstood thus, led to extortion of some prospective Corps members by fraudulent individuals in their bid to secure such documents some of which may not stand a test of integrity.

It further said that in order to avail the Scheme credible information on their health status and also protect them from exploitation by unscrupulous persons, prospective Corps members will henceforth undergo fitness test at the NYSC Clinic at the Orientation Camp with effect from the 2022 Batch ‘C’ Orientation Course.

The NYSC further said that its Orientation Camp Clinics across the nation are managed by the National Health Insurance Scheme with the supervision of Consultants from tertiary health institutions and therefore urged prospective Corps members to comply with the new policy.
