Corps Members have been advised to avoid induced rejection, 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 lbrahim stated this today while de-briefing the 2021 Batch ‘B’ Stream Two Corps Members and Camp Officials through a nationwide virtual address.
He said any Corps Member caught inducing posting or redeployment would be sanctioned in line with NYSC bye-laws.
He also disclosed that there is nothing like two weeks break after leaving the Orientation Camp, but added that if there is a compelling need for any Corps Member to travel, the concerned must obtain permission from the NYSC through the established channel.
Ibrahim said no Corps employer is authorised to grant permission to any Corps Member to travel.
“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.
As patriotic Corps Members, it is expected that you accept posting to anywhere you have been posted to and add value to the community”, the DG added.
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 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.
General lbrahim warned against the negative use of the social media, urging them to verify every information before it is shared online.
“Don’t use fake news to promote disunity, shun cybercrimes and all forms of criminality”, he said.
