|Corps Members Beseige Nysc Over Posting To Borno, Other States by anointedf(m): 9:47am On Jul 07, 2011|
HUNDREDS of prospective 2011 batch ‘B’ National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members posted to the northern part of the country yesterday lay siege to the headquarters of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) with a view to obtaining redeployment to other parts of the country.
The corps members who would be sworn-in today after the registration exercise closes by 12 a.m. this morning, were seen at the entrance of the NYSC headquarters with some placards reading, “We don’t want to go to Bornu or Bauchi state;” “We don’t want to be killed like others” and so on.
The NYSC public relation officer was unavailable for comments on the development, as she was said to be on tour.
But a director in the NYSC who spoke with The Guardian on condition of anonymity, reiterated the position of the scheme on the matter, saying the prospective corps members should first resume for registration and the orientation course, which will last for three weeks, at wherever they were posted after which they could apply for relocation.
The director added: “If they are not registered, then they cannot be redeployed. We posted 95,000 corps members this time, if we stay here saying we are redeploying them, what time do we have for the orientation?
But The Guardian learnt that almost all the 633 corps members posted to Bauchi State have reported to the Wailo Permanent Orientation Camp preparatory for the swearing in ceremony scheduled for today.
Bauchi State Coordinator of the NYSC, Ibrahim Tizi, yesterday expressed the preparedness of his office to conduct the orientation exercise, assuring that all arrangements have been made to ensure that the corps members had a good and memorable stay in camp.
Tizi stressed that adequate security arrangements have been made to ensure that all the corps members were secure while at the camp and when eventually posted out for their primary assignments within the state, saying: “Bauchi State is a safe place to be.”
