Press Release

Our attention has been drawn to social media publications regarding the ongoing compulsory testing for COVID-19 of all potential National Youth Service Corps members in the state prior to camping.

We wish to state that the State Government is fully supporting the Corps with our epidemiology, surveillance and rapid response teams. So far, we have recorded only six positive cases of the disease among those tested and they have been managed and/or discharged as applicable.

Testing and surveillance processes continue throughout the camping period and beyond.

Thank you.

Chief John Okiyi Kalu
Honorable Commissioner for Information, Abia State
