Reps stop NYSC from posting graduates to volatile states

The House of Representatives on Tuesday ordered the National Youth Service Corps to stop posting graduates who have been mobilised for the compulsory national service to volatile states in Northern Nigeria.
The lawmakers gave this directive following protests by corps members posted to such states that their lives would be in danger due to the Boko Haram crisis.

The House, however, said that those corps members who wish to serve in such states should be allowed to do so, including their indigenes.

    WHO IS THESE NYSC BOSS, PLEASE TELL ME DID HE INCLUDE HIS CHILDREN IN THE POSTING OF THE YOUTHS TO THE NORTHERN STAES. WHY ARE PEOPLE SO WICKED.

    • Edirin Odata

      In my opinion, the NYSC should be scrapped, because it’s importance, is left to seen; ever since it was established. The intent, according to those that established it (NYSC), was to help UNIFY the various ETHNIC NATIONALITIES which to me, are IRRECONCILABLE; given the pervasiveness of those disgruntled ISLAMIC PERVERTS, that had unleashed TERROR, on  helpless CORPS MEMBERS, over time, without the GOVERNMENT, taking serious mitigating measures to senseless killings, by those idiots. It is, almost becoming an ”ANNUAL  RITUAL” the nation has to make, for us to live together. It is, UNACCEPTABLE by me. The government should wake-up, from her SLUMBER.

      • Chucksgom92

        You are absolutely right. The whole scheme should be immediately scrapped. It doesn’t make sense any more. However as you know quite well, those who are making millions from the stupid scheme will never allow it to be closed.  That is there own share of the national moi moi.

    This NYSC boss is mad….

    • Chucksgom92

      Simply crazy, where does he come from? Because if he is a northerner, I would suggest he is deliberately sending our young people to their death as his own contribution to the whole jihad going on in Nigeria. This country is hopelessly going down the hill. Unless we force these mad men ruling Nigeria, they will ruin Nigeria and go scot free.

    I recommend that the NYSC Boss be removed from office. Such people are only concerned about themselves and their immediate families. To them, every other citizen does not count, this accounts for all the troubles we go through daily in this country. 
    The House of Representatives should make him visit regularly and monitor activities in all camps in the North until there is absolute serenity in that region, if he wants to retain his job.  Thumbs up for the Corp members who stood their ground and kudos to the House of Representatives !!!

    • Koko

      even if the NYSC boss visits all the camps regularly during the 3 weeks orientation programme, what happens after they have been posted to their primary assignment in villages and remote areas? i bet if your relative is one of them you would think broader than the 3 weeks in camp.

      • Joeotega-Orogun

        I am saying in effect that he won’t even dare tread the path of visiting, for the 3weeks, and knowing how difficult it is for him to visit, why then should he post corp members to that region.
        That’s the point I am trying to make.

  • Bayo

    I’m highly disappointed in you Mr NYSC boss. What form of security were you talking about when your own house is on fire. Shame on you!

  • http://yahoo.com/ Axeman777

    Even the President of Nigeria refuses to visit certain states in the North because of the major security issues. Meanwhile the NYSC which is supposed to be protecting these young ones is leading them like goats to the slaughter. IS NIGERIA CURSED OR ARE WE JUST RULED BY A BUNCH OF VISION-LESS, CLUELESS, CORRUPT AND INCOMPETENT VAGABONDS??. I ask U all in the name of GOD, WHAT is really wrong with this country????

    • Chucksgom92

      Everything is wrong with us. Its just pathetic and heartbreaking.Sometimes one is tempted to ask why he is a Nigerian in the first place. Everything  in Nigeria happens upside down and inside out. We are under very strong curse and only God’s divine power can break the curse over Nigeria.

    • AngryNigerian

      So one has suggested moving the office of the NYSC boss to maiduguri, and his assistant to Kaduna or Yobe. Let us see how they will like that. I agree that this stupid leaders are visionless. We have a group that hates western education, you are no posting the very people that represents that western education to a place that hates it. How stupid and senseless is that? I would suggest that all affected corp members go to this stupid NYSC boss’ house and camp there until he can follow them to maiduguri and stay with they himself. Does anyone know his address?

    thanks for the quick response by the house of rep on posting of the NYSC members 

  • Dexter4

    There is this saying that goes like this “what you won’t eat don’t smell”why must our leaders continue to claim that all is well when their ruling us with fear,is obvious that the crisis in the north has no solution for now.i expected that before the posting,that the NYSC boss will use his discretion and do the posting by considering the crisis and not sending any body that does not want to go there.Secondly we all know that the reason for the establishment of the NYSC scheme is for national integration but now that the government is claiming integrating while the sect is differentiating and for now no solution to the equation.is high time we improvise by asking all the northerners,southerners,easterners to serve in their respective local father land .I HAVE SPOKEN MY MIND

  • Nwaobiri Chibuzor.

    Those who said that they should post corps members to Yobe State should first of all send their own sons and daughters there.Who so ever insist that they should still post corps members to Yobe State are blood suckers.My question is that what if those innocent citizens are post there and at the end we still hear the same story you people like telling us?God will you judge you all selfish humblings.
