He made this known at Kaima Community in Kolokuma/Opokuma local government area of Bayelsa State during a brief opening/swearing-in ceremony of 2021 Batch C, Stream 1 corps members deployed to the State for their one-year national service.

The state coordinator, Mrs Ojugo Elizabeth Iyowuna, represented the NYSC boss, who advised the 1450 corps members stationed in Bayelsa to continue to follow the COVID-19 preventive guidelines.


The federal government has announced intentions to make the presenting of evidence of COVID-19 vaccination by civil servants a pre-requisite for allowing entrance to public posts beginning December 1, 2021, according to the NYSC chief.
