NYSC Should Be Overhauled -Senators Cry Out

Senators also declared orientation camps across the country unfit for human habitation, in a motion by its Chief Whip, Olusola Adeyeye.
Senate subsequently resolved and called on the Federal Government “to improve on medical facilities in all our NYSC orientation camps across Nigeria” and “to deploy to these medical centers, experienced medical personnel.”
Senate also mandated its Committee on Sports and Youth Development to conduct a thorough and comprehensive investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of the three corps members in order to guide against future occurrence.
