Permanent appointment for best serving Corper:DG Nysc

Posted by

The coordinator made the appeal during aninterview with the News Agency of Nigeria

(NAN) on Friday in Kano.

According to him, if the state government

starts offering permanent appointments to such

corps members, it will encourage them to

perform better toward the development of the

state and the country.

He said that the Federal Government was

already offering such appointments to the

overall best performing corps members in the

country, including award of scholarships to

further their education.

Baba commended the state government for

fulfilling its promise of paying N5, 000 to each

corps member serving under the states and the

local governments, while calling on private

organisations to take a cue.

The coordinator also said that five out of the

2,185 corps members who just passed out,

received the 2016 Kano State Honours Awards.

According to him, the awardees are recognised

for their “wonderful’’ performance during their

service years, especially toward the

development of the state and the country in

general.

Baba said the awardees bagged such honour

due to their patriotism, selflessness, dedication

and commitment during their service year in

Kano.

“They have done so much during their stay at

camp and also at their places of primary

assignments for the development of the state

and the country.

“This is especially in the areas of education,

health and agriculture. And other five corps

members will also repeat their service year for

various offences,” he said.

“These corps members that will repeat their

service year were found guilty of absconding for

three or more consecutive months during their

one year mandatory period.”

According to him, most of them have

absconded completely from their duties without

taking permissions from the NYSC or their

places of primary assignments.

He said that in Batch 1, Stream 2, 12 of them

were repeating their service presently while five

in Stream 2 were serving the same punishment.

NAN reports that out of Stream I and 2, 42

corps members had been given extension of

their service by various months owing to

undisclosed offences.
