NYSC Dismisses Report of high Food Prices in Camps

NYSC Announces Date to Begin Batch A Stream II Orientation Course

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has vehemently refuted social media claims regarding soaring food prices in orientation camps, dismissing them as groundless and mischievous fabrications.

Eddy Megwa, NYSC’s Director of Press and Public Relations, issued a statement on Saturday, characterizing the allegations as “laughable, absurd, and unfortunate.”

Megwa strongly criticized the circulating narrative that implied a state coordinator urged corps members to abandon the orientation camp due to alleged food shortages, categorizing it as a “tissue of lies intended to cause mischief.”


The NYSC management emphasized the baselessness of such claims, underscoring the experience and seniority of the state coordinators involved, many boasting over 25 years of dedicated service.

Megwa elucidated the operational framework of the orientation camps, highlighting the robust system of checks and balances in place to ensure a seamless and well-regulated course of activities, including the provision of meals for corps members.
