NYSC DG warns corps members against joining politics

Tuesday, August 9, 2022 Brigadier-General Mohammed Fadah The Director General of the National Youth Service Corps, Brigadier-General Mohammed Fadah, has warned corps members against participating in the local politics of their places of assignment.“While you’re expected to integrate into your host communities, appreciating and respecting their cultures, you shouldn’t engage in their local politics, which is a no-go-area for you,” Mr Fadah enjoined at the closing ceremony of the orientation course for Batch ‘B’ Stream II corps members in Kogi.Represented by NYSC State Coordinator Mofoluwasho Williams, the director general reminded the corps members of their oath of allegiance to serve with diligence in their places of primary assignments.He also urged the corps members to be wary of acts that would portray the scheme negatively, especially vices such as drug abuse and trafficking, cybercrime and Advance-Fee-Fraud.Mr Fadah reminded them that their membership of the Service Corps does not confer on them immunity from legal consequences of any wrongdoing during the service year.He, therefore, enjoined them to continue to be law-abiding and serve as role models for the younger ones.Eleven corps members and three officials were issued letters of commendation for their outstanding performances during the orientation course. (NAN) We have recently deactivated our website’s comment provider in favour of other channels of distribution and commentary.
