NYSC speaks on Islamization of Benue State orientation camp

The National Youth Service Corp, NYSC, have reacted to an allegation that its Director General, Brigadier General Ibrahim Shuaibu is planning to Islamize the Benue State orientation camp.

This was after it was reported that the DG expressed anger that the camp had no mosque and ordered for the immediate construction of one.

However, a statement by NYSC Director of Press and Public Relations, Adenike Adeyemi, revealed that the DG’s directive was only towards Corp member’s welfare.

The statement reads: “When we visited the camp, the DG observed the three associations worshipping in the open space, he, therefore, instructed the state coordinator to provide spaces for them, as those worshipping should have a structure under which they should worship.

“The instruction was, therefore, targeted toward the welfare of the corps members.

“In fact, it wasn’t only Muslim Corpers Association of Nigeria (MCAN) that he saw that day. He was only concern about the welfare of the corps members without prejudice as the scheme does not favour any religion against another.”
