Don’t Reject Corp Members. Governors, Tell Employers.



Delta State Governor, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, has implored employers in the state to stop rejecting NYSC members posted to them, saying: “They should rather create the necessary and enabling environment for them to deliver the best stewardship” towards enhancing the economic growth of the state.”
He gave the advice spoke at the closing ceremony of the orientation programme of the Stream (1) 2015 Batch ‘B’ 2015 service year at the orientation camp in Issele-Uku, Aniocha North Local Government Area of Delta State, on Monday.

Similarly, Enugu State Government has warned Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) in the state against rejection of corps members posted to their offices and warned that government would henceforth view such cases with “seriousness”.
Speaking at the closing ceremony of the 2015 batch ‘B’ orientation course at the NYSC orientation camp Awgu, the governor, who was represented by his deputy, Hon. Mrs. Cecelia Ezeilo, reminded heads of the MDAs that government policy against rejection of corps members was still in force.
Okowa, who was represented by the state commissioner for higher education, Mr Jude Sinebe, similarly advised the corps members to accept their posting in good faith, especially where their place of primary service is in the rural area.
“We cannot entrench the core values of national service if corps members reject posting to rural communities where their services are mostly needed”, the governor said, urging the corps members to regard themselves as “reliable agents of national unity and socio-economic development.”
While noting that the orientation course was designed to equip the corps member with the knowledge and skills required for the service year, Okowa noted that their exposure to the skills acquisition and entrepreneurship development programme would “serve as an invaluable tool towards assisting you not only to be self-employed but to aim at becoming an employer of labour, especially after the service year.”
