Corpers should not be rejected in organisations - DG

The Director General has urged organisations not to reject NYSC members.


Brigadier-General Johnson Olawumi, Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, has appealed to corporate bodies to stop rejecting NYSC members.

He made this known during the swearing-in ceremony of stream two of the NYSC Batch ‘B’ 2015, at the Kubwa Orientation Camp in Abuja.

Vanguard reports that while the NYSC DG was urging organisations not to reject corpers posted to them for the one-year mandatory service, he also added that they should also create opportunities for corps members to add value to their organisation.

“For the private sector, we can only continue to appeal to them that they should take advantage of the potentials in these young men and women, their companies are going to be better for it,” he said.

He also urged Ministries, Departments and Agencies, MDAs to also take advantage of corpers and the added value they can bring to their organisations.

“I am not aware of any MDA that rejects any corps member, and if we get any we shall make appropriate reportage to the necessary authority, but there is a circular to the effect that no MDA should reject any corps members,” he clarified.
