The workshop, with the theme ‘Optimizing the NYSC/ Corps Employers Partnership for National Development in the context of the New Normal’, harped on the intervention of the Scheme especially at the heat of the pandemic when corps members provided health services as well as the provision of other Non- pharmaceutical preventive items to curb the spread of the virus.

The Director General called on the corps employers to ensure the seamless operations of the Scheme in their domains. They were further urged to place premium on the welfare needs and security of corps members while urging them to shun the negative acts of rejection and aiding and abetting corps members to evade service.
