The Director-General of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brig-Gen. Sulaiman Zakari Kazaure, has said in a recent interview that only corps members with convincing cases will be relocated to their home states.
Kazaure, who stated this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Dutse on Tuesday, noted that there were criteria and due process to follow for redeployment of corps members.
The coordinator said nursing mothers, pregnant women and people with serious ailment, among others, were among these categories.
The DG further said that it would be inhuman not to consider a person with genuine problem, especially ailment, for relocation.
Kazaure said following complaints by civil servants for upward review of salary, the NYSC was also looking at the possibilities of doing same for corps members in view of the high cost of living.
The coordinator pledged that the NYSC would do its best to make life comfortable for all corps members posted to anywhere in the country.
It would be recalled that Kazaure had on Monday said that the increase in corps members monthly allowance would be determined by the new national minimum wage ”when it takes effect.”
The NYSC DG also disclosed that 82,000 corps members were deployed nationwide for the 2018 Batch ‘A’ orientation course across various states except those with security challenges.
