Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim, Director General, NYSC, flagged-off the NYSC National Sanitation Exercise at the Palace of the Sa’Nyanyayi of Nyanya, Abuja, on Saturday, 24th July 2021.
In his address, the Director General pointed out that the need to enlighten the public on the health risks of poor hygiene was based on the report of the last Health Initiative for Rural Dwellers, HIRD, exercise which attributed most ailments diagnosed to poor sanitation habits.
The exercise according to the Director General was an avenue to empower the people with adequate information on personal and environmental hygiene with special focus on regular environmental sanitation and proper disposal of waste among others.
He commended the efforts of the NYSC Officers as well as corps members who put in their best in the humanitarian service to the community.
