Abstain From Local Politics, NYSC DG Advises Corp Members



Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps, Brigadier General Mohammed Fadah, has warned corps members not to involve themselves in local politics.

The DG said this on Tuesday during the batch B stream II orientation camp closing ceremony held at Amada, Akko Local Government Area, Gombe State.

Fada, who was represented by the state coordinator, Ada Imoni, charged them to take up Community Development Services, instead of involving themselves in electioneering process.

He revealed that respecting and appreciating their values is the fastest way to integrate into the host communities.

The Director-General said, “Your letters of posting to Places of Primary Assignment will be handed to you soon after this ceremony. In this regard, I would like to remind you of your oath of allegiance in which you pledged to accept posting in good faith.

“I enjoin you to perform your duties with diligence and be guided by the provisions of the NYSC Act and Bye-Laws as well as workplace rules and regulations. In keeping with the objectives of the Scheme, you are expected to integrate into your host communities while also appreciating and respecting their cultures.

“I must, however, emphasise that engagement in their local politics is a no-go-area for you. Furthermore, I enjoin you to undertake personal and group Community Development.”
