Mrs Tosin also noted that about 300 camp officials, comprised of NYSC, military, Police, NSCDC, Man ‘O’ war and Red Cross personnel are expected at the camp for the exercise, adding that the NYSC was prepared for the 21-day orientation slated to hold between Tuesday, June 18, and Monday, July 8, 2019.

On logistics and all other necessary arrangements, she said, “materials needed to execute a hitch-free orientation exercise in the state have been adequately put in place.
