Corps members posted to Borno are usually camped in Katsina for their three-week orientation course since due the Boko Haram crisis in the state.
Mr Adamu-Jiya said the corps members should not panic as peace has returned to Borno.
The coordinator said because of the improvement of security, the NYSC camp in Borno will soon be reopened.
He cautioned the corps members against involvement in cultism, drug abuse, cyber crime and other negative tendencies during the service year.
“There is the need for the corps members to use social media wisely and desist from drug abuse and other crimes for a successful service year.
“I also urge you to desist from taking laws into your hands, and should report any issue to the appropriate authorities for further action.”
Mr Adamu-Jiya also appealed to them to exhibit maturity in their dealings and be good ambassadors of their families, communities, institutions and the NYSC.
The coordinator assured the corps members of necessary security and welfare throughout their stay at the camp and during the service year.
He commended Borno and Katsina Governments for their relentless support to the NYSC scheme.
The corps members were administered the Oath of Allegiance by Justice Abbas Bawale.
