Following the shut down of orientation camps nationwide, the National Youth Service Corps has suspended its weekly Community Development Service activities indefinitely.
The suspension was contained in a press statement signed by NYSC Director of Human Resource Management, Abdulrazak Salawu.
Salawu said CDS suspension was due to the increasing cases of Covid-19 in the country.
It also ordered all local government inspectors to immediately comply with the directive.
The statement reads in part, ”I am directed to inform you to suspend all Community Development Service activities until further notice.
“This obvious course of action is directed by circumstances beyond our control. The sudden changes in many countries warranting social changes between persons and isolation of persons on account of COVID-19 present no other option, but to stop CDS activities because of large number of persons in close contact.
“With the abundance of caution, avoidance of errors is easily achievable.”
Meanwhile, Nigeria on Thursday recorded new cases in Lagos State, bringing the total number of coronavirus patients in Nigeria to twelve (12).
