In the directive, the Nigerian government cautioned the MDAs not to reject corps members posted to them by the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).

A statement signed by the NYSC Director of Press, Mrs. Bose Aderibigbe, said the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir David Lawal, gave the directive in a circular sent to MDAs.

According to Aderibigbe, the circular – with reference number SGF.15/T/745 – condemned the growing incidence of rejection of corps members posted to government establishments.

“To put an end to this undesirable development, we have reiterated that the directive that MDAs should not reject youth corps members posted to them for their primary assignment is still in force, “ the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) quoted the circular as saying on Friday.

She quoted the SGF as saying that the directive by the federal government was imperative in order to maintain the objective of the NYSC scheme which includes involvement of Nigerian graduates of specific age category in national development and integration.
