The Federal Government has announced the re-opening of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) camps across the country.
The announcement was made on Thursday by the Minister of Youths and Sports, Sunday Dare on his verified Twitter handle.
“The Resumption of the NYSC Orientation Camp for prospective Youth Corpers has been approved and opens on November 10th, 2020. Full COVID-19 Protocols will be enforced.”
The Federal Government had on March 18 2020, ordered the immediate closure of ongoing National Youth Corps Service orientation camps nationwide over coronavirus concerns.
This directive comes amid ongoing protests in demand of immediate police reforms by Nigerian youths.
The protest which started as an online trend snowballed into a revolution to demand the proscription of the notorious Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
Even after the dissolution of SARS by the Inspector-General of Police, Mr Mohammed Adamu and the subsequent creation of a new Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team, the protesters have remained undaunted with their calls for an end to police brutality. They rejected the SWAT unit as they began an #EndSWAT.
