NYSC threatens to punish corps members who induce rejection, redeployment
The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), on Monday, warned that corps members caught inducing posting or redeployment would be sanctioned in line with NYSC bye-laws.
They were advised to rather accept their posting in good faith and settle down to contribute their quota to the development of their host communities.
NYSC Director-General, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim stated this while de-briefing the 2021 Batch ‘B’ Stream Two Corps Members and Camp Officials through a nationwide virtual address.
He said as patriotic corps members, they should accept posting anywhere they are posted to.
“Once you get to your place of primary assignment tomorrow, don’t put pressure on your employers for rejection.
“Don’t lobby anyone that you want to change your posting or relocation. If they write to us that you induced or forced them to reject you, you will be punished,” he said.
Similarly, he said corps members contrary to beliefs are not allowed to embark on two weeks post-orientation break but noted that those with a compelling need to travel, must obtain permission from the NYSC through the established channel.
He urged them to be patriotic in the service to their fatherland and ensure they equally add value to themselves, NYSC Scheme and the society at large.
The Director-General admonished them to use the opportunity of the NYSC platform to excel in life.
“You have gone through the rudiments of the Orientation Course, please take advantage of it and see what you can do for your fatherland.
“Let the spirit of the Orientation Exercise live in you forever as Nigerians. National integration should be your watchword. We should be united as a country,” the DG added.
