As part of efforts to ensure a credible mobilisation process, the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has set up a committee to investigate anomalies with regards postings, relocation and unqualified enrollment into the Scheme.
NYSC Spokesperson, Eddy Megwa disclosed this in a statement issued on Tuesday, August 23, 2022.
According to the statement, the Scheme said it would also continue to tighten every loose end to enhance its security in the cyberspace.
NYSC Director General, Brigadier General Muhammad Kaku Fadah while delivering his keynote address at the opening ceremony of the capacity building workshop for Deployment and Relocation Officers from the 36 State Secretariats of the Scheme and the FCT, reminded themselves of the sensitive nature of their schedule and the need not to only uphold the trust reposed in them, but also strive to be above board in the discharge of their duties.
The Director General, who was represented at the workshop by the Director, Information and Communication Technology, Mrs Christy Uba added that the Scheme would not tolerate multiple registration, attempts to fraudulently enlist non-graduates for service, strange relocations or postings and other manipulations on the NYSC Integrated System.
“Management is seriously concerned about this development and has set up a committee to investigate these infractions with a view to further safeguard the credibility and integrity of our data.
“I therefore, enjoin you to play your part in our efforts to nip the problems on the bud”, the DG said.
The Director, Corps Mobilisation Department, Mrs Victoria Ango, in her address commended the deployment and relocation officers for their services but added that they need more requisite knowledge to achieve excellent performances.
She said the workshop was expected to refresh the participants and create an avenue to inspire dedicated staff to maximize their potentials.
Ango added that the workshop would among other things, be used to harmonize the efforts of deployment and relocation officers and consolidate on the gains already made in standardising the scheme’s operations in the mobilisation process.
