Boko Haram: NYSC Resumes Orientation in Maiduguri After 12-Year Closure

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has resumed orientation services in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, after the camp was shut down for 12 years due to the Boko Haram insurgency.

The camp was closed in 2012 due to security concerns, but has now reopened with the return of peace to the state.

A total of 1,125 prospective corps members have so far registered, and none have reported any form of security threat.

The state coordinator of NYSC, Comrade Mohammed Adamu, commended the military and other security agencies for ensuring the safety of the camp and its environs.

The chairman of the NYSC Governing Board, Alhaji Mohammed Bukar, urged the corps members not to relocate to other states for any reason.

The highpoint of the ceremony was the swearing in ceremony of corps members administered by the representative of the State Chief Judge, Justice Bukar Malgwi.
