NYSC blasts employers who reject its corps members

    The National Youth Service Corps has voiced concern over certain firms in the North-East region refusing to hire corps members.

    This was said at a Corps Employers’ Forum on Monday in Yola by the zone’s NYSC director, Mr. Garinvwa Ishaya.

    ‘Deepening Corps Employers’ Participation towards Improved Welfare and Security of Corps Members’ is the workshop’s central focus.

    He added that they should be given an enabling atmosphere in their primary assignments so they may contribute to the social and economic growth of the nation. He claimed that the tendency was demoralizing to the corps members and the scheme.

    The system was created to enhance the nation’s socioeconomic development, and it has had a significant positive impact on strengthening national unity.

    “We fervently urge companies to always welcome corps members assigned to their organizations for the sake of the program and the country as a whole.

    He stated that employers “are expected to make statutory welfare provisions for corps members to cover their travel and lodging.”


    Therefore, he urged state governments to provide suitable housing for the corps members and asked local council chairmen for help in advancing the program’s goals.

    The Adamawa State Coordinator for NYSC earlier stated that the conference will allow participants to strategize and exchange ideas on how to carry out their mandate and receive feedback on the program.

    According to the News Agency of Nigeria, Adamawa, Gombe, Bauchi, Taraba, Yobe, and Borno are under the supervision of the NYSC North-East zonal headquarters.
