NYSC inaugurates COVID-19 compliance, sanitation team to monitor corps members on protocols

The Anambra State Coordinator of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Mr Kehinde Aremu, on Monday, inaugurated the COVID-19 Compliance/Sanitation Vanguards at the state Orientation Camp, Umuawulu/Mbaukwu, to monitor corps members on safety protocols in line with the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC) directives.

In his inaugural speech, Mr Aremu charged the Vanguard team with the dual responsibility of educating the camp community on the dangers of the dreaded disease as well as enforcing compliance of the COVID 19 safety protocols.

He said that they are being backed by enormous powers to bring to book, any of their colleagues who would run foul of the laws governing the compliance of the COVID-19 safety protocols, such as wearing of face masks, regular washing of hands and the proper use of the wash hand basins and soap provided at strategic points at the camp.

Speaking further, the Coordinator emphasised that the camp management has zero-tolerance for the indiscriminate trashing of waste.

He, therefore, empowered them as the most powerful group aside from the camp officials, while mandating them to use the powers conferred on them to deliver on the assignment given to them.

Earlier, the Coordinator had an interactive session with the body who are drawn from the ten platoons on the camp.
