Accept your posting in good faith, don’t relocate, says FCT Minister.

Corps Members deployed to the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, have been urged to accept their postings to their respective place of primary assignments in good faith and settle down to contribute their quota to national development.

The FCT Minister of State, Dr Ramatu Tijjani Aliyu stated this while declaring the 2019 Batch ‘B’ Stream Two Orientation Course closed at NYSC FCT Orientation Camp in Kubwa, Abuja.

She advised the Corps Members to storm the nooks and crannies of the FCT where their services are needed and positive impact.

Aliyu in her address also admonished them to study and adhere to the tradition, norms and cultural values of people of the Federal Capital Territory.

‘For those of you that are single, if you are charmed by our young men and women, do the needful and you will be glad you did. The people of the FCT are warm, loving and hospitable’, the Minister said.

Speaking further, Dr Aliyu reiterated the need for the Corps Members to engage in constructive and creative endeavours in the course of the service year that would culminate into self employment.

She appealed to them to key into the Federal Government’s crusade against poverty reduction through wealth creation.

‘For this reason, you have been equipped with the pre-requisite knowledge through Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development training that would enable you become not only self-employed but also employers of labour’, Aliyu stated.

NYSC FCT Coordinator, Hajiya Walida Siddique Isa in her address said the Corps Members have been rebranded towards their mandate as useful tools and forces for the socio-economic development of the country.

She commended its stakeholders especially the six Area Council Chairmen within the FCT and the Scheme’s collaborating agencies for their support.

‘Success is not a teaparty but hardwork and discipline. I charge you to be exemplary wherever you find yourself and ensure you maintain the NYSC dress code at all times’.

  1. LETTER TO THE DG OF NYSC

    “Greetings Sir, The batch 2018 C Corp members has serious concerns as we see from the NYSC calendar that we were stated to pass out on 3rd of October (for stream 1) and 7th of November (for stream 2).
    Where as our ID card expires by 23rd of September  and 15th of October. We are suppose to pass out on 26th of September  (stream 1) and 17th of October (stream 2) as the normal custom of NYSC not to exceed 12 months.

    We plead with you Sir to look into the matter as many Corp members are missing out on Job opportunities, Interviews, Masters Degree Forms and Scholarship from Federal Government  which requires NYSC Discharge Certificate. And if there has been changes, we could be informed so that we can understand the reason for the delay. We appreciate your effort as you look into this matter. And also understand the stress you just pass through in 2019 Batch B Stream 2 orientation camp, may the Almighty God continue to strength you and your team.

    For Ideally 2018 Batch C stream 1 should pass out on 19th of September . We beg you help us make this possible.
    Thank you sir”.
