A lot of questions have been going round about NYSC and their plans towards the youth.
- Are our allowances still going to be paid?
- Is the DG in support of corp-members travelling out of their posted states?
- When are Corp members to resume duty?
- Would there still be new batches of Corp members this year? When is the next batch going to be enrolled?
Well, good news, as your questions have finally gotten to the ears of the DG and he has responded.
Economic confidential, interviewed the DG on the 18th of May, he said much about the serving Corp members.
He tendered his gratitude to the efforts the serving Corp members are putting in especially in this pandemic.
The pandemic had stayed longer than expected and had caused a little bit of change of schedule in the calendar.
He stated in the interview that the corp members have donated lots of relief materials to many individuals.
He commended the effects of the skills acquisition and empowerment development program (SAED). The corp members are exceptionally doing well as they put their newly acquired skills to good use.
WHAT DOES THE DG HAVE TO SAY ABOUT NYSC MONTHLY ALLOWANCE?
NYSC DG have said that based on the increment of corp members allowances, they should be able to take care of themselves in this period. It is a good thing the allowance got increased at the right time.
He promised to do well to see that all corp members are properly taken care of and will not delay their monthly allowances.
WOULD THERE BE MOBILISATION OF NEW CORP MEMBERS THIS YEAR?
It is unfortunate as the DG has clearly announced that mobilisation of corp members be suspended. This was as a result of the Corona-virus (COVID-19). After the dismissal of the 2020/2021 batch A corp members from camp, no other batch have been mobilised. This is likely to last till further notice.
CAN SERVING CORP-MEMBERS TRAVEL?
This is what the DG has to say about travelling of Corp-members; Some corp-members already travelled before the closure of some borders. They were advised to take due permission from their LGIs before they do that. This is to ensure that you are covered by NYSC just in case of any mis-haps.
WHAT DOES THE DG WANT TO ACHIEVE AS DG OF NYSC?
The DG said in his interview with the economic confidential that he wants to leave a legacy. He stated that he would make mobilisation process seamless so that those who are not qualified will not be mobilised.
He said he wants to be remembered for how he relates with staff and how he treats Corp members. He would want to be driven by technology to facilitate better services. He also stated that he would prefer to die than to have any Corp member die while he is on seat.
WHEN WILL CORP MEMBERS BE CALLED BACK FOR DUTY?
Though some Corp members are helping in the distribution of palliatives and relief material,
some had already travelled before the lock down. The lives of the corp members are important too and so activities including CDS is suspended till further notice.
We can only take precautions and follow the NCDC safety rules to stay safe for now until things get back to normal.
Well, Corp members and prospective corp members can only hope for the best.
