Corps members in the country have been warned by Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier General Mohammed Fadah against using social media to spread fake news.
The directive was given on Tuesday June 21, while the 2022 Batch ‘B’ Stream I Orientation Course in Asaya camp, Kogi State, was declared open.
The DG who was represented by the Kogi State Coordinator of NYSC, Mrs Mofoluwasho Adebimpe Williams, urged corp members to promote national unity and development and not fuel hatred or other negative vices.
“One of the objectives of NYSC is the promotion of national unity and integration. Hence, your deployment away from your States of origin and your assemblage here from diverse ethnic, religious and socio-economic backgrounds.
“This policy will not only offer you the opportunity for a broader understanding of the country, but also entrench the culture of working together in an atmosphere filled with friendship, peace, harmony, and a shared vision of a great and prosperous Nigeria.”
