The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Muhammad Bello has commended the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) deployment policy aimed at checking mobilisation of its unqualified graduates.
He said the innovations brought by the Scheme in the sensitization of the general public about its activities and in particular, its vibrancy and high level of commitment to its relevance in national assignments was commendable.
He stated this while declaring the 2021 Batch ‘B’ Pre-Mobilization Workshop open in Abuja on Tuesday.
Bello, who was represented at the Workshop by the Secretary, Development Secretariat, Dr Kelvin Ogbonna, said the NYSC Scheme has attained many feats in its almost fifty years of existence.
He said, apart from promoting National Unity and development, the services rendered by the patriotic young Corps Members have been felt tremendously particularly in the areas of education, health, agriculture and other critical sectors.
“Therefore, the nation is most grateful to the founding fathers of the Scheme, successive administrations, and indeed, all Corps Members, past and present.”
“The innovations brought by the Scheme in the sensitization of the general public about its activities and in particular, the current fight against the mobilization of unqualified graduates for National Service is well appreciated by all,” he said.
NYSC Director-General, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim in his address said while the Scheme remains deeply committed to the success of the mobilization process, it expects other stakeholders to also be above board in the discharge of their responsibilities.
He said Management is delighted at the significant gains arising from the Scheme’s previous engagements, including improvements in data integrity, reduction in errors, and renewed dedication by Student Affairs and Data Entry Officers of Corps Producing Institutions in the country.
He however added that where few cases of wrongdoings have been identified, the Scheme would apply the necessary sanctions on the erring institutions and officials to serve as a deterrent to others.
