The Director-General, National Youths Service Corps (NYSC), Brig.-Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim, says the Corps has blocked the relocation of 1,000 corps members over unethical practices in the 2021 relocation processes.
Ibrahim disclosed this at the sideline of the 2021 Workshop for Inspectors’ Development Programme (IDP) for staff of the organisation in Abuja on Wednesday.
The workshop is with the theme: “Optimising the Ideals of the Scheme through Effective Utilisation of the NYSC Inspector.”
He also warned the members of staff, who were involved in such practices to desist or face disciplinary actions.
”Some corps members that we believe we’re involved in some unethical practices in an attempt to compromise our relocation processes were cancelled.
“The challenges are that some people are tempted to compromise our staff and get themselves involved in unethical practices and so on.
“Recently, we have to block some of our corps members because we won’t condone any act of indiscipline and we are not going to compromise our mobilisation process; our deployment and relocation are free.
“We approved the relocation but when it was done, we later discovered that there were some unethical practices and we cancelled it.
“And, we are still investigating, so anybody involved will be disciplined accordingly. We have blocked 1,000 Corps members nationwide, involved in such practices,” he said.
