‘tsiga Must Resign’ - Director-general Of The National Youth Service Corps by Donlittle(m): 3:10am On Apr 12, 2011
A non-governmental organisation, Foundation for Ethnic Harmony in Nigeria, has called for the resignation of the Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps, Maj.-Gen. Maharazu Tsiga, over his denial of the deaths of corps member in Friday’s bomb blast in Suleja, Niger State.

In a chat with journalists in Calabar, the Cross River State capital, on Sunday, the Chairman of FEHN, Mr. Allen Onyema, said it was obvious that some corps members lost their lives contrary to reports from the D-G denying the loss of lives of any corps member.

He said, “Even president Goodluck Jonathan, admitted that some corps members lost their lives, but it was shocking and embarrassing that Tsiga would deny with scorn on network news the death of any corps members in the blast.”

“While making that statement on air, Nigerians expected that Tsiga would be sober and say the true position, rather he was talking and rocking his chair as if nothing happened. The corps members were on a serious national assignment that called for serious concern and vigilance by the DG, federal government and Nigerians at large.”

agreed. They should also scrap the exercise if they cant guarantee the lives of corps members serving their father land diligently

NYSC should be scrapped. Tsiga should be publicly executed.

Must INEC engage the services of any corp member?
With bombings here and there, I think NYSC should have a rethink.

The DG insisited he did the head-count twice and no corper died but eight were injured (7 admitted in Suleja hospital and 1 in Gwagwalada). Let anybody who can prove otherwise give the names of the dead serving corpers

Re: ‘tsiga Must Resign’ - Director-general Of The National Youth Service Corps by deevick246(m): 12:14pm On Apr 12, 2011
The DG last long lost touch with the Nysc matters.l heard he said it on NTA that no serving Nysc member life was lost,while the news of several serving corps members death in the Sulaja bomb blast was heard everywhere.
Its a very risky but commendable venture the current corp members are engaged in.The amount to be paid to the corp members for engaging in this risky election job is not even ascertained yet.
l just tire for this yeye Nysc DG.

i was going 2 blast u until i saw ur last sentence. Tsiga has been d face of d NYSC 4 a long time. He has neva failed 2 defend corps member evn wen they were probably wrong. He is well luvd by corpers, present nd past. If a poll is done, corpers wil vote 4 him 2 stay 95:5. Besides, they cld nt authenticate d case against him. He said no 'serving corper' lost his life. Inevitably, maybe pple who'v jst passed out did. 190, u almst 4al my hand.

I GOT YOU RIGHT. ONE MUST SHOUT.ANGER IN A SOCIETY LIKE OURS. WHY MUST THE YOUTHS BE WASTED BY A WICKED SOCIETY WHERE YOU CAN SEE CHILDREN AND WOMEN SUFFERING? WHY? LOOK AT OUR ROADS. ACCEDIENTS EVERYWHERE. OUR LEADERS FLY BY AIR WATCHING THE ELECTORATE SUFFERING. I ASK AGAIN WHY?

Such is expected in a country where no comprehensive basis for data collection. Imagine nobody is able to ascertain the correct formation. Who do we believe? Is it GEJ that said some were lost or Tsiga, who is saying no corper's live were lost.We still have a long way to go in this country. God help us!

in nigeria what i know best is that no one resign or accept to b at faults, n.y.s.c fore me ve just failed to protect the serving members n i tink d goverment should have a rethink now not to put copers life in danger.
Re: ‘tsiga Must Resign’ - Director-general Of The National Youth Service Corps by EMANY01(m): 1:28pm On Apr 12, 2011
A number of the dead were corpers who conducted the registration exersise in feb/mar and who subseqently passed out early in march.However INEC lobbied some of them (all over the federation )to participate in the election exercise proper.Logial argument was they are familiar with the protocols,processes for INEC and they will be best poised to guide and assist the new set of corpers to be deployed .I say this because my girlfriends younger brother and my cousin are currently involved.
Note that Tsiga used the term "serving corpers" knowing the situation of things.My grouse with him is that he used a technicality to divest the corps of any and all relations with the dead.BTW serving corps members are in the hospital with severed limbs and he used the word injured to describe them.

Dont blame NYSC or INEC , Blame d useless Aboki people and Buhari for the unfortunate Incident just to disstabilize the electorial process and to say GEJ administration is nt doing enough in terms of security.

I beg make person hear word.l doubt if u ever participated in the Nysc or your close relations did.if u did,then u would know the scheme has nothing deserving in it.A whole one year of wasteful experiences.Some fresh graduates who would have bring about a revolution in governace,agric sci,econmics,technology etc are been expose to gainless experience for a year.
What good has the DG donethat u are here supporting himask anyone who have done the Nysc before,most especially in recent times and u will be shocked at such discouraging comments u will hear.Its as bad as some people losting their lives in the process and the heavy knowledge acquired at the higher institution is wasted.
How much are these corp members being paidits the officials that get all the monetary benefits.Even the on going election pay to the corp members is not being ascertained and some died as a result of wanting to participate in the election exercise and the Nysc DG is claiming no serving corp members lives were lost.

@Andyanders,

Is it too much of someone in humility to ask one thing from you? When you are bashed from all angles, then it is seen as people being on your case. Nothing stops a learned person like yourself who can use a computer effectively to type using proper letters (NOT typing in ALL CAPS). It is painful to the eye and if you must note, majority of readers don't have time reading such comments which SOMETIMES might have reasonable comments in them.

klas:

The DG insisited he did the head-count twice and no corper died but eight were injured (7 admitted in Suleja hospital and 1 in Gwagwalada). Let anybody who can prove otherwise give the names of the dead serving corpers
I refuse to believe you commented with your brain stating the bolded. You are the type that's quick to believe anything said or thrown in your face.

Tsiga, while on phone to one of the media, confirmed that a head count was done and no serving corper's life was lost in the Suleja bomb blast to which there were loads of eye witness accounts. He instead said they were lives of students from nearby schools like Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria and Bayero University, Kano as well as some people to be used as adhoc staffs.

My questions, just as others have asked which "klas" failed to reason with his brain are these:

1. How do you call for a head count in the dead of the night before the elections the next morning? Do you know how large Suleja is with corpers scattered all over? Don't forget there was panic that night too.

2. The mourners (families of the dead) who made their way to the hospitals on getting news of the blast and knowing that they have a serving corper in the area are crying wolf, right?

Klas, I await your response. . .

mr youth service, im sure only ur generatn hs been attending youth service. So because u graduated in zoology nd were expecting 2 b posted 2 a bank bt u got a a teaching job at d zoo, evry1 is like u? Yes, it might hv been a stressful period, bt it was worth experiencing. Besides, if u read my post wt evn half of one ur decomposing eyes closed, u wld hv seen that i was talking about d D.G nd not d scheme itself.
