NYSC redeploys 261 corps members on health issues



Mr Emmanuel Attah, the Coordinator of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Osun,
says a total of 261 corps members from Batch A, deployed to the state, have been redeployed based on ill heath or being pregnant.

Attah made this known on Monday when the NYSC Director-General, Maj.-Gen. Suleiman Kazaure visited the Osun NYSC permanent
orientation camp in Ede, Osun State.

According to him, 65 of those redeployed are either nursing mothers or pregnant, while 196 are redeployed based on health grounds.

He, however, said that those redeployed on health grounds were initially given primary treatment in the camp before they were sent
home for further medical attention.

The state coordinator disclosed that a total of 2,329 corps members comprising 1,252 males and 1,077 females were deployed to
the state for the batch A orientation camp.

He added that the state NYSC had been up and doing to make sure that corps members deployed to the state were given the best
treatment, while having a smooth and fruitful stay in the state.

The NYSC director-general congratulated the corps members for graduating and making it to the NYSC to serve their fatherland.

Represented by Mr Leke Abiodun, the NYSC Director of Audit, Kazaure warned members against “frivolous and unauthorised travelling.”

According to him, any corps member who wishes to travel must inform and seek permission from officials of the scheme before
embarking  on any journey.

He advised them to maximize the entrepreneurial training provided by the scheme so they could be independent and even become
employers of labour after their service year, as white collar jobs were not readily available.

He said that the scheme had established skill acquisition centres all over the country and asked the NYSC members to make use
of the opportunity to learn and acquire skills and not waste their year of service not learning a vocation.
