By Alex Uangbaoje

The outgoing governor of Kaduna State. Mukhtar Ramalan Yero has warned Ministries and Agencies in the state against the act of rejecting corps members posted to them by the National youth Service Corps (NYSC).

Delivering his address during the closing ceremony of the “2015 Batch ‘A’ Stream 1 Course” at the NYSC orientation camp in Kaduna. Yero reminded the ministries and agencies that the state government policy against rejection of corps members is still very much in force.

The governor who was represented at the event by the Commissioner of Youth and Sports Dr. Yari Everton Peter. Said the government will handle with seriousness any case of rejection reported to it and deal decisively.

He promised that the allowances for those posted to state establishments will be paid as at when due. Adding “I want to assure you that you are safe in any part of the state you are posted to serve.

“Let me remind you once more that the major objective of NYSC is to foster unity and integration among the diverse nationalities of our great country through the youths. I therefore urged you to pursue the realisation of this in practical terms by taking your host community as your home and join in contributing to its upliftment.” Yero said.

He therefore, commended the camp officials for successfully guiding the corps members through the exercise. In addition he said “am glad you understood the importance of the responsibility entrusted to you and approached it with seriousness it deserved.”

In his speech, the state NYSC Coordinator Mr. Halary Nasamu called on the corps members to see their service as an opportunity to contribute to the growth and development of their fatherland Nigeria, saying “and your outstanding performance can earn you special recognition and awards at the local, state and naytional levels.

He cautioned them to desist from engaging in acts capable of denting the image of the NYSC and that they must not travel outside Kaduna state without permission from the NYSC management.

According to Nasamu, the idea is to discourage them as much as the NYSC can to stop them from exposing themselves from dangers of the roads. Adding “As you leave camp you are expected to report to where you are posted to, complete the necessary documentation and settle down.”
