NYSC: Avoid Unnecessary Journey – DG To Corps Members

​Corps Members have been advised not to embark on any journey that may lead them into trouble or unpleasant experiences during the service year.

NYSC Director-General, Brigadier General Sulaiman Kazaure, stated this today while addressing 2017 Batch ‘B’ Stream One Corps Members at Enugu and Abia State Orientation Camps respectively.

He, however urged them to follow the laid down procedures in the NYSC Scheme if there are genuine reasons to travel.

The Director-General added that NYSC Management would not undermine the safety and welfare of any Corps Member.

Kazaure also advised them to serve as good ambassadors of their families and the NYSC in their places of primary assignments and host communities.

Speaking further, the DG admonished the Corps Members to participate actively in all camp activities adding that the Orientation Programme is the bedrock for a successful service year.

“Avoid unnecessary journey, seek permission and follow due process from your employer up to the NYSC”.

‘If you want to organise night party, let it take place within your lodge and remember that you are not above the law as Corps Members,” Kazaure said.

While briefing the Director-General on Camp situation, Enugu State Coordinator, Alhaji Ikaka Ahmed, said hoodlums recently attacked the camp while some equipments were carted away.

He added that the Camp depends on power generating sets as the only source of power while he commended the GOC 82 Div. Nigerian Army for assisting the Camp with water tankers.

Ikaka also lamented lack of utility vehicles that would ease prompt discharge of official engagements.

Abia State Coordinator, Mrs Francesca Ifon, told General Kazaure that the Corps Members have been co-opted into various Camp Committees and were well-behaved.

She appealed for more assistance from the State Government for NYSC programmes in the State.
