According to him, the essence of disclosure of true state of health by Prospective Corps Members was to help with decisions regarding their deployment, level of participation in camp activities and medical care.

He made the disclosure on Wednesday while addressing the 2022 Batch ‘A’ Stream One Corps Members at the Yakubu Gowon NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp, Fanisau, Jigawa State.

Ibrahim stressed that postings and relocation were done free of charge, and warned them against making payments to anyone for those purposes.

He called on Corps Members to be guided by the spirit and letters of the Oath of Allegiance they swore to both within and beyond the service period.
