Obaseki donates equipment to tackle outbreak Delta State government has debunked rumours that a cadet of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) was diagnosed with Lassa fever in Asaba, thereby recording an isolated case of the dreaded disease in the state capital.
The Commissioner for Information, Charles Aniagwu, made the government’s position known during a press briefing in Asaba.
Aniagwu, at the end of the first State Executive Council (Exco) meeting on Wednesday, said information from Irrua Specialist Hospital in Edo State, where the patient was erroneously rushed, proved otherwise.
His words, “I want to seize this opportunity to debunk the story making the rounds that a case of Lassa fever has been recorded in Delta. As a government, we have followed the development and can authoritatively say that it is not true, because the patient, who was erroneously rushed to the hospital at Irrua on the recommendation of Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Asaba, is responding to treatment.”
Meanwhile, Edo State government has donated of 200 Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to Irrua Specialist Teaching Hospital, as part of efforts to curb the spread of the disease in the state.
The Godwin Obaseki government had over the years equipped the Institute of Lassa Fever Research and Control at the hospital with dialysis machines, ventilators, PEP and drugs, among others required for effective management and treatment of patients.
Presenting the items, the Commissioner for Health, Dr. Patrick Okundia, reassured the citizens of the Governor Obaseki-led administration’s commitment to combat the scourge, adding the donation was to arrest the spread of Lassa fever for the benefit of Edo people and to protect caregivers.
Commending the institute for its cooperation, the medical expert described the hospital as a centre of excellence in the management of Lassa fever in the country.
Earlier, the Chief Medical Director (CMD) of hospital, Prof. Sylvanus Okogbeni, who received the donation on behalf of the hospital management, expressed appreciation to Governor Obaseki for his immediate response and keen interest in fighting the scourge.
Two members of the 2019 National Youth Service Corps Batch C Stream currently undergoing the three-week orientation exercise in Ebonyi State have been sent home from camp for refusing to wear trousers.
A statement from the spokesperson of the NYSC in the state, Ngozi Ukwuoma, listed the corps members as Okafor Love Obianuju with registration number EB/19C/0523 and Odji Oritsetsolaye (EB/19C/0530).
According to the statement, they were spotted by the Camp Director, Isu Josephine, and her team during her routine morning inspection, wearing white T-shirts and skirts.
“When they were accosted and interrogated, they disclosed that they could not wear the white shorts and the trousers given to them by the NYSC since it was against their faith,” the statement read.
“Efforts were, however, made by the office of the Camp Director to make them see reason why they must obey the rules and regulations guiding the orientation and NYSC, but all efforts to do that proved futile”, the statement said
The spokesperson narrated that after efforts to make them change their minds were rebuffed, the matter was officially reported and the proceedings for de-kitting were initiated.
“The corps members were queried and subsequently made to face the camp court, where they were found guilty, having made it categorically clear that they were ready to bear the consequences of their actions”, she said.
Mrs Ukwuoma noted that the court recommendations were submitted to the camp Management and the Camp Director was directed to de-kit the Corps Members.
“They were de-kitted in the presence of security agents, who also escorted them to the gate as they left the camp”, the spokesperson added.
Can Corpers where hijab? Hijab has been in past not part of NYSC wear but with this article you will see the commission redress of this
The National Youth Service Corps has said that it will allow female corps members, who are Muslims, to use white, shoulder-length hijabs for religious purposes.
The NYSC added that only three types of dressing used for different occasions would be acceptable for corps members.
The corps stated this in a document exclusively obtained by our correspondent in Abuja.
The document reads, “The modes of dressing for corps members are classified into three categories, which are used for different occasions. One, within the camp during the orientation programme, their normal attire, except otherwise directed, consists of a pair of white shorts with a white vest and white canvas shoes and socks.
“Two, for ceremonial purposes, the proper dressing is crested vest on top of a pair of Khaki trousers with a pair of jungle boots and socks with the trouser folded inside the socks. The belt and the Fez cap are to match.
“Three, for Man O’War activities at the camp and Community Development Service programmes, they are expected to appear in a jacket and trousers with the plain white vest inside, the jungle boot and the Fez cap, as well as a customised belt to match.
“On the use of the hijab, the NYSC does not issue the hijab as part of its uniform. However, the NYSC management allows corps members to use a white hijab that drops at shoulder level for religious purposes.”
The scheme in the document listed the complete dress kit issued to a corps member as: a set of Khaki trouser and jacket, one crested vest, a pair of jungle boot, two pairs of white shorts, two plain white vests, a pair of white canvas shoes, one Fez cap, two pairs of customised socks and a customised belt.
The Management of National Youth Service Corps wishes to notify all Foreign Trained Nigerian Graduates that the Scheme has devised a new strategy of verifying certificates and other documents submitted for mobilization by foreign graduates, with effect from 2019 Batch "B" Stream Two Service Year.
To ensure that the verification exercise is carried out seamlessly, Management has earmarked one centre in each of the six geo-political zones.
The centres are:
Lagos State - NYSC Secretariat, Old Census Office, Baba Animasahun Street, Surulere, Lagos.
Enugu State - NYSC Secretariat, 2, Abakaliki Road, GRA, Enugu.
Accordingly, all Foreign Trained Nigerian Graduates are hereby advised to physically present themselves along with original copies of their certificates, transcripts, travel documents and evaluation letters from Federal Ministry of Education and residence permit (where applicable) for sighting/verification.
The verification exercise will last for four days starting from Tuesday 6th to Saturday 10th August, 2019.
All persons who were exempted from service and those whose mode of study was part-time should also present themselves with their credentials for physical verification.
Please note that this exercise is mandatory.
All foreign trained graduates are at liberty to present themselves at any of the verification centres nearest or most convenient for them.
Today let us talk about NYSC certificate collection and if it is mistaken, stolen, missed or not seen by any mean. Let us be answering
Can I get a new NYSC certificate? How can I go about replacing NYSC certificate?
COLLECTION/REPLACEMENT OF CERTIFICATE OF NATIONAL SERVICE
Modalities for the collection of Certificate of National Service Certificate of National Service is issued to State Secretariats at the Directorate headquarters through the State Certification Officers thrice a year for delivery to deserving Corps members.
Only Corps members duly discharged from National Service and Certificated on presentation of letters of clearance from employers, CDS Inspectors and I.D card are issued with Certificates.
Those who benefited from WAP loan facility are issued theirs on full repayment of the loans.
Corps members with pending disciplinary case(s) are not certificated until he/she is cleared.
LOST CERTIFICATE OF NATIONAL SERVICE In the case of loss of Certificate of Exemption, the following steps are to be taken.
Letter of Introduction from where the Ex-Corps member is discharged i.e. State of Service
Where available, a copy of the lost Certificate
It is the policy of the Scheme not to reprint lost or burnt Certificates. Letters of Confirmation are issued instead.
ERROR IN CERTIFICATE
Upon noticing any error on your Certificate, return it immediately to the State Certification Officer for possible correction where the error is traceable to NYSC. Certificates are produced based on what the Ex-Corps member penned on the format during the orientation exercise.
In case you are to proceed to NYSC NDHQ for collection of corrected Certificate, the following are required of you:
Letter of Introduction from the NYSC State Secretariat addressed to the Director-General.
Valid I.D Card
NOTE: Certificate of National Service is not issued by proxy.
Today we will be answering two major questions which is
When is next NYSC 2020 batch or stream going? And what is the official plans of NYSC during this POP?
We start by releasing an argument why we believe and know that NYSC will never have increased the period for Batch B 2019. .
And NYSC have finally proof that they can't allow extend month. And have finally released his official memo on the state of how the POP will be taken place. Has we have been expecting NYSC to talk officially on this for a while and many have crafted out their plans of how they think how it might go.
Therefore for reminders sake we are started with questions 2;
And here is a quote from the DG of NYSC
"It is imperative to state that Corps Members who at present are not in their States of service need not violate the ban on inter-state journeys which is still in force.
However, as soon as the ban is lifted and it is safe to travel, they are expected to go to their respective States of service to collect their CNS."
As expected the parade was cancelled and the collection of certificates extended for 10 days.
But an essential question passing out members ask is
How do we get to our families and home state
But that have been simply answered by the post, NYSC like we said before is shutdowns and like in previous content of the Director-General. They will approach things like other agencies.
And will not be giving out Travel Pass has some have supposed. At this point I say this also indirectly answer the first question. As just as stated NYSC will not do anything especially mobilization and camping until this is fully down.

This post is a response to increase interest on our Telegram ex Corp members community,
Let us start with design
Essence of design Good design convey experience and can represent the core tenets of an organization and what that organization does. Professional logo designers will perform industry and client research, brainstorm ideas, and create sketches with their client while following principles of good logo design.
The aim of a Designer When a designer first takes on a new logo project, he spends a lot of time trying to understand both the organization and its audience. We'll get to the process of learning what a logo needs to "say" later, but first, let's talk about what makes a great logo in the first place. A great designer is able to capture an organization's mission and personality into a single, simple image, especially when they aren't a part of the organization themselves? Read on to find out.
Steps of making a great design We will highlight 9 steps every PCM, Corps Members and Ex Corp members need to follow to start making great design. Let us note our focus here is on Logo design
Step 1 Start With Your Story Step 2 Brainstorm Words That Describe Your Brand Step 3 Sketch Ideas Based on These Words Step 4 Test Your Top Sketches With Your Buyer Persona Step 5 Refine Your Chosen Sketch Step 6 Develop Your Logo's Layout on a Design Platform Step 7 Pick Versatile Color Options Step 8 Choose a Font Step 9 Ensure Scalability
Making a memorable Logo design
Even though logos is often just small images, logos carry a whole lot of meaning -- and designing one comes with a whole lot of responsibility, too. Logos are usually the most recognizable representation of a company or organization. And with more information available to the average consumer today, logos also have to quickly and effectively communicate on behalf of their brand.
To tackle such a complex challenge, many brands choose to hire outside help. But for those of us who are brand new to the logo design process, working with freelancers to design a logo can be a challenge in itself.
This skills can help PCM with extra cash on campus, help CM with logo design for their CDS, and ex Corp members can be a professional in which they can be a freelancer or a chief design architect for an organisation
Principles of a great Logo design This a principle you can start using to make your first Logo and design work. Most logo designers follow some iteration of these 5(five) principles of great logo design:
Simplicity: Is the design simple and clean enough to be flexible and easily recognizable? Is it not too busy, distracting, or confusing?
Memorability: Is it quickly recognizable? Will people only have to spend a second or two thinking about it to get it?
Timelessness: Will it still be a great logo in 10, 20, or even 50 years?
Versatility: Does it scale to different sizes without losing quality? Will it work across various media and within different contexts?
Appropriateness: Does it resonate with the desired audience?
Professional Graphic Designer believes these five principles are great for keeping designers from going too crazy when designing a new logo.
You have the tendency to be afraid or. excited about the prospect of designing stuff that looks cool and uses cool, new styles, But when you're designing a logo, you're ultimately solving for a problem. You're trying to convey something simply that gets across the core tenets of an organization and what that organization does. Keeping these five things in mind prevents you from getting carried away with the flash of what you're doing. It keeps you honest.
Casestudy of great Logo We will only take a look at one to make this course short, there are several great iconic Logos out there you can look at, but let us talk a look at;
Evernote Casestudy Evernote's logo is a great example of a logo that follows all five of these principles. It's an elephant, which is a reference to the well-known saying, "An elephant never forgets." The elephant's folded ear cleverly resembles the popular document icon.
Not only is the logo simple, memorable, and appropriate for its audience, its physical and digital attributes work perfectly across different media variations and usages. "There is not one application I have seen where the logo fails to fit perfectly, all the way from the 16px favicon, the browser extension icons in both colour and mono, the iOS icons, Macintosh dock icon, and so on," writes Graham Smith, a freelance designer of logos and brand identities. Plus, elephants will never go out of style.
But it took six weeks of concepting to come up with the simple elephant logo. Here are other initial ideas that were produced before the elephant was chosen.

Once the elephant was chosen, it went through another series of iterations before the final design was chosen. The whole process took six weeks, and it's become one of the most compelling logos today.
The folks at both Evernote were able to come up with logos that keep the cornerstones of logo design top-of-mind. Now, let's delve a little more into the design process itself.
Process of making a great Logo IF you diligently go through this course you will be able to make good quality design and especially logos like a Pro
The process might varies from designer to designer, some professional agrees to this process. Here's how them does it.
Step 1: Research the field/industry. Before a designer like Tyler even thinks about putting pen to paper, he has to do his research. "Researching the field or industry helps designers get a sense of the environment the logo's going to live in," said Tyler. This is especially true for designers who haven't done prior work in that field or industry. "You need to know the trends and what's appropriate."
The appropriate look and feel of a real estate logo, for example, is going to be different than those of a restaurant or band logo. "You've got to see what's out there," he says. "Which conventions are worth keeping? From there, you can start thinking about how to differentiate the new logo will from the tons of pre-existing ones."
How different the new logo will be from the others depends on the context. In some cases, the logo shouldn't be radically different because you don't want to put people off. For example, in the health services industry, customers are looking for a certain level of comfort and familiarity; but in the concert industry, you might want to go with something more innovative and crazy. It varies wildly from field to field.
Step 2: Get to know the client. Once the designer has a solid, objective understanding of the field or industry, it's time to get the best possible understand of what the client does and who their target audience is.
There are two parts of this step, says Tyler. First, there's the information you're trying to glean from them: what they do, what they think about themselves, and who they sell to. Then, there's the translation process. "If your client is a construction company but they talk a lot about how they're really family-based, the challenge is translating that ephemeral idea into something concrete. How do you capture the essence of that company?"
When this part of the process is done right, it involves a lot of back and forth, asking questions, and pushing the client to articulate and deeply explain their value proposition. For newer companies, these discussions can actually be really eye opening. "A lot of companies aren't aware of how they're different -- especially smaller companies. These logo design discussions can even help them think more about what differentiates themselves from their competitors."
Step 3: Sketch, present, and iterate on initial ideas. "I usually try to present the client with between two and three possibilities," says Tyler. "Any more than that and you might find yourself doing revisions on all of your ideas, which sets you up with a lot more work and them up with a much higher bill."
For example, when Tyler designed the logo for Inbound Marketing Week 2015, here are the initial ideas and explorations he presented:
Step 4: Revise. Sometimes, this step is only one little tweak. Other times, it's a series of longer revisions. Tyler says he usually specifies in the original contract how many revisions he's willing to do, which forces the client to be more thoughtful about each revision request. "Sometimes, clients ask you to start over from scratch," he says. "You can avoid this by doing your due diligence when creating the original contract."
Here is the final revision for Inbound Marketing Week's logo, along with secondary versions used on the website, lanyards, signs, and other various paraphernalia.
Step 5: Organize the final deliverable. Once the logo's finished, Tyler will sort out with his client which file formats and other iterations they need that the logo might live on. For example a restaurant might need menus, signage, and t-shirts designed.
Designing a logo from scratch is a difficult creative process that takes a lot of research, knowledge of a business and its audience, and a deep consideration for the principles of logo design. But if you partner with the right designers and have a solid process in place, you should end up with something your company loves (and people can understand).
I hope this answers address the questions of how to design a logo, if u still find any difficulty, you can share on the life after NYSC platform https://t.me/afternysc

Permit me to start by saying this post is a response to the questions a group member asked on NYSC Telegram group
Commy "Are we going back to our original camp or relocated camp after d covid19 for dose that applied for relocation?"
The answer to this is quite simple, but we will explain the pretext of this
Let us first answer is NYSC still going to report to camp.
I will not just answer this, but will quote the words of NYSC DIRECTOR-GENERAL, BRIG GEN SHUAIBU IBRAHIM DSS PhD MTRCN " Therefore, the Corps Members shall be posted to commence their primary assignments forthwith, while they shall be invited back to the Orientation Camps when the situation improves,
" This he said in his message to announce the suspension of camp, which is one of the four cardinal programmes of NYSC
How we can build a pretext on this, if we can establish that NYSC will still go back and complete the 21 days, which is compulsory as several training has been scheduled for those period in which 2020 Batch A Corp member could not finish
What now is the fate of relocated/redeployed corpers
One thing to note in this is that what makes a prospective corp members to be make a corper is the swearing in and registration.
With swearing in it can be done anywhere, but the registration especially in the book popularly known in NYSC as the book of life, it make such corp members a full brown member of the youth service in the receiving state.
Therefore it is not a matter of if the corp member is returning to his initial state but he/she is already by the virtue of completing the redeployment process for those who have completed and even those who have report. Especially fill the Book of Life in the receiving state a corper of that new state.
His/Her payment and allowance are made by the new state, especially after 3 months of stay, the ID card reflects the state, new state code issued and even such Corp member pass out and get his certificate and passing out parade from such state.
Let us look at some arguments against this above propositions
What if the state camp cannot occupy us all now.
This is a valid point but we also know that each state already has a capacity they can accommodate and relocation will not make them over populate there state with corp member.
This is part of why many redeploy to Lagos and will be given Osun or other Western state. Because it is full sometimes.
To also invalidate this argument, what about in a case of passing out parade, even though every corp member are usually not present. But they will be preparing for them, therefore that should not be an excuse.
But the state don't start paying until after 3 months
This also looks valid but in most cases, it is not just the former state paying. State not even pay allowance it is the federal government that pays corpers allowance through the central bank. So this will not really be the case.
In conclusion to simply answer Commy's questions I strongly think you will not need to go back to your former state of you are relocated.
Thanks, if you are yet to join our biggest and let us together be better informed. Thanks
In this post will be seeing the right outfit corpers should be found wearing in time like this. We already highlighted why corp members should be properly dress you can find that .
This times we are full of several risk, and as an educated and young population of the society we don't need to be all exposed, NYSC management as consistently talk about this kind of dressing
so if you want to be tying your jacket like a rope maybe you should reconsider, like we mentioned in the article reference above. Your NYSC attire or better said Uniform is for identity.
But can also greatly help at this time with the cap, the thickness and longness of the jacket. This is not to say you can't get a more protective wear than or not wearing facemask but we are only particular about corp member and things related here.
NYSC WEARS WITH FULL ITEM IMAGE
There are 7 major kit of NYSC this wears are sometimes optional depending on the occasion and often time choice;
Therefore when you are on the last 4 items, it can be refer to 4/7 also you can be on any number over 7 but to be identified as a corper the last four is important;
Crested Vest which can be substituted with White Round Neck
Jungle Book which can also be substituted with White Canvas
It is also good to add that hijab have been added to the list of kit optional for muslim corpers and have to be short. Therefore it is now 8 (eight)
8 over 8 8/8 corpers kit
Photo of NYSC new complete kit which is 8 over 8 NYSC kits
if you are yet to create your stories, or share your thought on the platform simply click here
Starting from the suspension of camp, on Wednesday, this is very understandable. But the suitation was on ground before the camping activities of a week.
There even declaim that the Covid 19 will not affect the camping activities.
Still this might be justify will the increase of cases of the virus in the country, which they should have forsee worst case scenario before bringing PCM down for just registration.
The week still continues, the joke and drama did not end there
Why should only female be able to register for NYSC 2020A stream 2?
PCM trying to register for NYSC batch A stream 2 have been experiencing gender biased segregation.
With female having a full list of four available slot of state to choose from while guys can only hope and look up to for all four slot empty.
At the end I think we should all be equal, with equal rights and privilege, obvious not so, some can be married and pregnant and nursing mother which are Corp member but we can't have nursing fathers privileges.
With drama still continues with little response and validation of alot of things, we want to believe that thumbprint and CDS have been cancelled.
I hope this is not an opportunity for many to neglect their duty post.
At the end the week is yet to end let us wait and see
If you are yet to be in the community of corp members it is much more important than before especially for new Corper
