NYSC Batch B Corp Members Rejects Posting To Borno And Other Troubled States


Corps members posted to Yobe, Kaduna, Kano, Sokoto, Bornu and Bauchi states have asked the National Youth Service Corps to redeploy them from these trouble states.
The corps members, who
expressed sadness as they
received their call-up letters for
the Batch B NYSC service year,
said they were confused as they did not know what to do due to the spate of bombings and other forms of insecurity in these states.
Some of the corps members and
their families, who expressed
their worries on various social
network sites including
Facebook and Twitter, said they
were extremely sad and
disappointed when they
received their call-up letters,
deploying them to trouble states
where there is currently curfew,
threats of reprisals and censeless
bombings.
Some of the comments on the
social network sites read, “We
need to arise and stop the
government from sentencing us
and our loved ones to death. Is
our government/NYSC this
heartless or simply inhumane?
We seek our immediate
redeployment, we want to live in
places where we can work with
peace of mind.’’
Our correspondents learnt that
authorities of the NYSC had also
been under pressure from
parents and prospective corps
members posted to northern
states, who had been seeking
alternative posting.
Our Correspondent learnt in
Abuja on Sunday that the NYSC
was already collaborating with
the affected states on how to
ensure security for the corps
members posted to their states.
But speaking through the Borno
State Commissioner for
Information, Mr. Inuwa Bwala, in
a telephone interview with our
correspondent in Abuja on
Sunday, the Governor, Alhaji
Kashim Shettima, made a case for
corps members to be posted to
the state.
He argued that the security
situation in the state was being
exaggerated by detractors to
further isolate the state from the
rest of the country.
He said, “While it is true that we
have security challenges, it is a
fact that these challenges are not exclusive to Borno State.
“We don’t have on record any
attack on visitors neither do we have any record of attacks on the NYSC camp or corps
members posted to and
currently serving in Borno State.”
