NYSC blocks 1,000 corps members’ relocation over unethical practices



NYSC should be 2yrs so as to undergo military training – Gov Ishaku


The Director-General, National Youths Service Corps (NYSC), Brig.-Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim, declares that the Corps has blocked 1,000 corps members’ relocation over unethical practices in the 2021 relocation processes.

The NYSC DG made this known at the sideline of the 2021 Workshop for Inspectors’ Development Programme (IDP) for staff of the organisation in Abuja on Wednesday.

The workshop is themed, “Optimising the Ideals of the Scheme through Effective Utilisation of the NYSC Inspector.”

Ibrahim also warned staff members, who were involved in such practices to stop or face disciplinary actions.

He said, “Some corps members that we believe were involved in some unethical practices in an attempt to compromise our relocation processes were cancelled.

“The challenges are that some people are tempted to compromise our staff and get themselves involved in unethical practices and so on.

“Recently, we have to block some of our corps members because we won’t condone any act of indiscipline and we are not going to compromise our mobilisation process; our deployment and relocation are free.

“We approved the relocation, but when it was done, we later discovered that there were some unethical practices and we cancelled it.

“And, we are still investigating, so anybody involved will be disciplined accordingly. We have blocked 1,000 Corps members nationwide, involved in such practices.”

On the workshop, the Director General declared that it was necessary to equip the participants toward developing the right attitude and skills necessary to deal with difficulties in routine operations of the scheme.

Ibrahim further said that it would allow the scheme to adopt measures for the eradication of all forms of glitches affecting its operations through the intensification of engagement with critical shareholders at the grassroots.

He said, “The inspectors are in the inspector’s cadre and they are always in the nooks and cranny of this country dealing with corps members.

“So, it is very important for us to train them and retrain them so that they will be in tune with our best practices and that is the essence of this training.

“Some of them were employed in 2010 and they have not undergone this training and it is important for us to do this because human development is very critical to the success of any organisation.”
