No Employer Should Permit Corps Members To Travel -NYSC

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has informed that employers were not allowed to grant Corps Members permission to travel.

NYSC Spokesperson, Eddy Megwa announced this in a statement issued on Thursday, February 22, 2024.

Megwa said, the NYSC Director-General, Brigadier General Yusha’u Ahmed disclosed this today in his address during a visit to Corps Members in Oyo and Ogun State Orientation Camps.

General Ahmed stated that unauthorised journeys attract sanctions, adding that no employer was allowed to grant permission to Corps Members to travel.

He advised them that all services in NYSC were free, warning that they should beware of online advertisers and fraudsters that may offer posting and redeployment to them for a fee.

The Director General also implored the Corps Members to adhere strictly to the NYSC dress code, adding that improper dressing in NYSC uniform attracts sanctions.

“Don’t dress anyhow. Dress as good ambassadors of NYSC and always abide by all NYSC rules and regulations.

“Respect the culture and tradition of your host communities when you leave camp. Make a good impact on the communities and in your Place of Primary Assignments”, the DG said.

He stated that efforts were still on-going towards the signing of the NYSC Trust Fund bill into law.

General Ahmed urged the Corps Members to participate actively in all the camp activities and also ensure that they establish long-lasting friendships among themselves before leaving the Orientation Camp.

He also admonished them to avoid idleness but rather engage themselves with meaningful activities that will add value to them in addition to their certificates.

The NYSC Oyo State Coordinator, Mr Odoba Abel Oche while presenting the Orientation Camp brief to the Director General stated that the Corps Members’ behaviour had been very commendable.

Similarly, the NYSC Ogun State Coordinator, Mrs Olayinka Nasamu said a total of 2,350 Corps Members had been registered. 1,318 for Ogun State and 1,032 for Lagos State.

“Ogun registered 496 male and 822 female while Lagos registered 414 male and 618 female”, Nasamu said.
