The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has expressed concern over some employers’ rejection of corps members in the North-East region.
The NYSC Director in charge of the zone, Mr Garinvwa Ishaya, stated this at a one-day Corps Employers’ Forum, on Monday in Yola.
Tribune reported that the theme of the workshop is: “Deepening Corps Employers Participation towards Improved Welfare And Security of Corps Members”.
He said the trend was discouraging to the corps members and the scheme, adding that they should be accorded enabling environments in their places of primary assignment to contribute to the social and economic development of the country.
“The scheme was established to add value to our socio-economic development as a nation, and it has tremendously impacted further uniting the country.
“We passionately appeal to employers to always accept corps members deployed to their organisations for the prosperity of the scheme and the nation at large.
