NYSC dismisses report of high food prices in camps


The National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, has debunked social media reports claiming high food prices in orientation camps, labeling them as unfounded and mischievous fabrications.

NYSC’s Director of Press and Public Relations, Eddy Megwa, said this in a statement on Saturday, stressing that the allegations were described as “laughable, absurd, and unfortunate.”

Megwa condemned the circulating narrative, which suggested that a state coordinator encouraged corps members to leave the orientation camp due to food shortages.

“The story is nothing but a tissue of lies, intended to cause mischief,” stated Megwa.

NYSC management insisted that such a claim is baseless, particularly considering the experience and rank of the state coordinators involved, who are seasoned officials, many with over 25 years of dedicated service.

Megwa outlined the operational framework of the orientation camps, emphasizing the system of checks and balances in place to ensure a smooth and well-regulated course of activities, including the feeding of corps members.

“A Resident Officer from the NYSC National Directorate Headquarters is always present to oversee the adherence to policies and rules,” he explained.
