The statement read, ‘This is to clarify the misrepresentation of the NYSC Director- General’s recent interview with the media currently trending on the social media.

“The Director-General had stated that in line with the National Defence Policy, corps members are like soldiers on reserve, because their education, exposure, and sophistication, can make them easily adaptable to military training.

“He charged them to remain focused and patriotic; and for the spirit of NYSC to live in all Nigerians.
