NYSC DG Discloses Next Step On Man O’War Drills In Camp

It has now been clarified that the Corps would not ban or scrap the exercise owing to the fact that the exercises are optional and officials do not compel any corps members to participate in them. Furthermore, he enjoined corps members who are interested in partaking in the activities to ensure that they are fit for it and also make certain to have a Man O’War official around for proper guidance.

NYSC Says they Do Not Force Anyone To Do The Man O’War Drills, It Remains Optional

In the aftermath of the death of Corps member Helen Amadi at the Kwara State orientation Camp, the hierarchy of the National youth service Corps has moved to address the growing concerns over Man O’War drills during the orientation exercise.

It has now been clarified that the Corps would not ban or scrap the exercise owing to the fact that the exercises are optional and officials do not compel any corps members to participate in them.

This was revealed by the Director, Legal Unit of the NYSC, Ahmed Tijani Ibrahim when he represented the Director-General of the Corps, Brig. Gen. Suleman Kazaure on an official visit to the NYSC Orientation Camp in Okada, Ovia North East Local Government Area of Edo State.

Furthermore, he enjoined corps members who are interested in partaking in the activities to ensure that they are fit for it and also make certain to have a Man O’War official around for proper guidance.

Mr Ibrahim said: “The Man ‘O’ War activities cannot be scrapped because it is part of the things we use to build the corps members. And that case that happened in Kwara State is what we were really not happy about. We condoled with the family of the corp member.

“We do not even force anybody to do it. The idea of making it optional cannot even come it. NYSC do not even force any corps members to do it.

“And any corps members who want to do it should make sure that there is an official on the ground and the state coordinator always ensure that official of the Man ‘O’ War is on ground to make sure that he guides the corps members doing any activities there.”
