The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has warned corps members against embarking on frivolous journeys especially in the festive period.
The NYSC Coordinator in Enugu State, Mr. Stephen Dewan gave the warning on Wednesday during the closing ceremony of 2019 Batch ‘C’ Stream Two NYSC Orientation Course in the state.
He expressed sadness that the state NYSC office recently lost a corps member to a ghastly motor accident.
He warned corps members to avoid embarking on frivolous journeys, especially during this festive period.
“If there is a need for you to travel outside the state, permission must be obtained from the state coordinator using the proper channel,” he also added.
Dewan disclosed that the corps recently launched a fresh campaign against road traffic accident with a view to ensuring the safety of corps members, NAN reports.
The state coordinator said that the launch was done in collaboration with the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) road transport unions nationwide.
He also said that the measure became necessary following road mishaps involving youth corps members across the country.
