Inside NYSC camps reopening in a time of COVID-19 (photo story)

NYSC camps reopen nationwide for 66,000 graduates

It is Tuesday. Orientation camps have opened after seven months of lockdown against COVID-19.

Students who graduated since last year and two years ago have been stuck at home, unable to proceed for their mandatory one-year national service.

With lockdown lifted, the National Youth Service Corps has reopened orientation camps across the country, and mobilised 66,000 graduates for the yearlong service.

Photojournalist Benedict Uwalaka joined the corps members to their orientation camp in Lagos as they arrived on Tuesday.
