“We Don’t Post Corp Members To Insecure Locations” – NYSC

Mrs Adenike Adeyemi, who is the Director, Press and Public Relations, NYSC, has revealed that Corp Members would not be posted to areas with high level of insecurity.

Mrs Adeyemi, who represented the NYSC Director-General, Brig. Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim,on a courtesy visit to The PUNCH Newspaper revealed that the agency was concerned with locations having security challenges

According to her, NYSC had started approving the  redeployment of some corps members based on marital, security and health  conditions.

 She stated that:

“We are very sensitive about security and we ensure that we do not post corps members to areas where insecurity is heightened, and if we post them to anywhere that is tough or where the parents say no to because of insecurity, we will redeploy them. It appears that the public does not have the full information about this”.

Stressing further on how the agency had been able to cope with Covid-19, she said that:

“We went into collaboration with the NCDC and before any staff is allowed into the camps, they are usually tested and if they test positive, they are immediately handed over to the NCDC. It is after we have all gone through the test that we now go in and then the prospective corps members also go through the process”.

Mrs Adeyemi also revealed that, “We decided to have batches A, B and C and streams one to two so as to reduce camp capacity due to the new normal. The streams may be removed when lifestyles go back to normal. These are just responses we put in place due to COVID-19 guidelines”.

She added that the camping activities had the entrepreneurial activities, to curb unemployment in the country and not just paramilitary activities.
