The National Youths Service Corps (NYSC) has issued a disclaimer with respect to the redeployment notice that has been circulating on the social media to defraud unsuspecting corps members wishing to redeploy to another state.
A circular issued by the Scheme on Sunday reads:
The NYSC Management wishes to draw the attention of Corps members to the message below being circulated by some fraudulent persons:
“2016 BATCH ‘B’ (STREAM) II
*TO RELOCATE / RE-DEPLOY TO ANY STATE OF YOUR CHOICE 100% GUARANTEE*
CALL / WHATSAPP : 0703******, 08071******”
Corps members are hereby warned to disregard the message as it did not emanate from the NYSC.
You are further reminded that relocation is granted free of charge on either marital or health grounds.
Corps members have the right to apply while approval will be given once specified conditions are met.
Meanwhile, the Director-General, Brigadier General Sulaiman Kazaure, has hailed President Muhammadu Buhari for providing the support which led to the success recorded in the war against Boko Haram.
He made the remark when he addressed the 2016 Batch ‘B’ (Stream II) Corps members at the NYSC Temporary Orientation Camp, Potiskum, Yobe State.
Kazaure also praised the gallantry displayed by officers and men of the Nigerian Armed Forces in the course of prosecuting the war against the insurgents.
He further noted that the success recorded by the Armed Forces made it possible for the NYSC to resume the conduct of Orientation course in the state after several years of break occasioned by insecurity.
He, however, noted that the Boko Haram elements, having been dislodged from their enclave in Sambisa Forest, may be seeking soft targets elsewhere.
The Director-General, therefore, advised the Corps members to always be security conscious, and to report suspicious characters to security agencies.
Kazaure also noted the rising incidence of kidnap, and advised them to take necessary precaution, especially by avoiding ostentatious lifestyles, lone movements and attendance of night parties.
He assured them of Management’s commitment to their safety and general welfare.
During a meeting with NYSC staff, Kazaure commended their courage and commitment to duty in the face of the problem of insecurity, which the state suffered over the years.
He assured them of Management’s commitment to their welfare.
