The Federal Government has directed all Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) to accept Corps members posted to them by the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) 

Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Engr. Babachir David Lawal conveyed the directive in a circular to the MDAs yesterday in Abuja. 

The circular, with reference number SGF.15/T/745, reads in part: “Government’s attention has been drawn to the growing incidence of rejection of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members posted to government establishments. 

“To put an end to this undesirable development, it has become necessary to reiterate that the directive that Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) should not reject youth corps members posted to them for their primary assignment is still in force.” 

Engr. Lawal said the government’s directive was imperative in order to maintain the objective of the NYSC Scheme, which includes the involvement of Nigerian graduates of specific age category in national development and integration. 

He says government’s establishments are also directed to ensure that the Corps members are actively engaged during their primary assignment just as the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports through the National Youth Service Corps is expected to monitor the level of compliance and give periodic reports to the government.
