...FG Implements Measures to Ensure the Safety of NYSC Members | #NwokeukwuMascot
In response to the escalating security challenges across the country, the Federal Government has announced that the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) will no longer post corps members to states categorized as crisis-prone or unsafe.
The safety and well-being of corps members during their mandatory one-year national service is of utmost importance. Recent incidents of abductions involving corps members have raised concerns about the viability of the NYSC scheme.
To address these concerns, the Minister of Youth, Jamila Ibrahim, has affirmed that significant measures have been put in place to safeguard NYSC members. Among these measures, the scheme will now restrict postings exclusively to states considered safe.
By implementing this proactive approach, the FG aims to ensure the protection of corps members, while maintaining the integrity and continuity of the NYSC program.
