NYSC expresses worry over rejection of corps members by employers

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has expressed worry over some firms in the North-East rejecting corps members.

Mr Garinvwa Ishaya, the NYSC Zone Director, disclosed this on Monday at a one-day Corps Employers’ Forum in Yola, Adamawa State.

The theme of the workshop is: “Deepening Corps Employers Participation towards Improved Welfare and Security of Corps Members”.

He said the tendency was disheartening to corps members and the scheme, and that they should be provided with favourable circumstances in their primary assignments so that they might contribute to the country’s social and economic development.

“The scheme was established to add value to our socio-economic development as a nation, and it has made a tremendous impact in further uniting the country.

“We passionately appeal to employers to always accept corps members deployed to their organizations for the prosperity of the scheme and the nation at large.

“Employers are expected to make statutory welfare provisions for corps members to cover their transportation and accommodation,” he said.

As a result, he asked state governments to provide adequate housing for corps members and sought the help of local council chairmen in supporting the scheme’s aims.

Earlier, Mr Jingis Denis, the NYSC State Coordinator in Adamawa, stated that the conference will allow participants to deliberate and exchange ideas on how to carry out the scheme’s objective.

According to reports, the NYSC North-East zonal office supervises Adamawa, Gombe, Bauchi, Taraba, Yobe, and Borno states.
