He Said;

“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.
