Nasarawa Stakeholders Laud NYSC For Sustaining National Unity 

National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) employers in Nasarawa State have lauded the management of the scheme for posting corp members to communities outside their hometown for primary assignments thereby promoting a sense of national unity.

The stakeholders stated this at the NYSC corps employers workshop on Tuesday in Lafia, Nasarawa State.

According to them the activities of NYSC over the years had helped in correcting the wrong notions people from the south have against the north and vice versa.

Mr Chukuma Charles, Principle, Evangelical Reformed Church of Christ (ERCC) Azuba, Lafia Local Government Area (LGA), said posting of corp members has changed the orientation of so many of them about the country.

He explained that all the corp members serving in his school are well behaved, dedicated and committed to thier duties.

The Principal further disclosed that he served as a corp member in the school and was retained after his service.

Mr Chukuma encouraged regular interaction between the corp members and thier employers with a view of understanding each other more and tackling challenges if they exist.

Lt-Col Zando Danjuma, Commander of Command Science Technical School, Rinze, Akwanga LGA, lauded the management of the scheme for the initiative to bring the employers, the corp members as well as the NYSC officials together for a frank engagement.

He also said that employers of corp members should ensure regular communication and create an enabling environment for smooth working relationship.

“Must of the corp members are posted to communities they have never been before, so, their employers should interact with them from time to time.

“Such interaction will give them a sense of belonging in the new environment and will not give room for misinformation.

“The communication would go a long way to guide the corp members because they need all the care and love from the employers,” the Commander added.

On his part, Mr Abdullahi Jikamshi, Nasarawa State Coordinator of NYSC said the workshop was aimed at interacting with corp employers with a view of addressing the challenges that is being encountered by both parties.

In her welcoming address, Mrs Abiodun Oluwaremilekun, North-Central Director of NYSC, said the 2023 workshop is not just for exchange of ideas, but is also an avenue for improvement of the quality of service delivery.

She also commended the Nasarawa State government for providing an enabling environment for the smooth operation of NYSC in the state.

The North-Central Director also commended the Director-General and state coordinators of the scheme in the zone for thier efforts in implementing programmes in line with thier mandate.

The theme for 2023 programme is ‘tackling emerging challenges in corps administration through NYSC stakeholders participation’. (NAN).
