NYSC Members To Be Trained In Martial Arts

Corpers will be trained on self defence

The 2012 Batch “A” corps members of  the NYSC scheme will be trained in martial arts while at the orientation camp.
Announcing this at the NYSC orientation camp in Iseyin, Oyo State,  on Thursday,  the State Coordinator, Mrs  Sekinat Idowu, said  the training was for self-defence.
Idowu  spoke at  the swearing in and official opening of the orientation course for 3,010 corps members  posted to Oyo State.
She said  the new training schedule was part of  the Federal Government’s policies toward ensuring that the scheme became an enduring instrument in the transformation agenda of government.
Idowu also said  there would no longer  be posting of corps members to banks and other private organisations unless their  services  fell under the purview of certain critical sectors of the economy.
She listed the sectors as  agriculture, education, health and rural infrastructure.
The corps members,  made up of 1,512 males and 1,498 females,  were sworn in  by the state’s  Chief  Judge, Mrs Badejoko Adeniji.
