NYSC probes two institutions over illegal mobilisation

Two institutions of learning are currently being investigated by regulatory agencies for allegedly presenting unqualified persons to the National Youth Service Corps for mobilisation, according to its Director-General, Brigadier General Sulaiman Kazaure.

The organisation warned that, henceforth, any official or institution that included names of unqualified graduates in their approved list for mobilisation would face criminal prosecution.

Although the DG did not mention the names of schools, he regretted that despite the effort of the NYSC to stem the tide of uploading of unqualified candidates and graduates of part-time programmes, “a few institutions has adopted new strategies to sustain the unwholesome practice.”

Kazaure said, “Among other things, the law excludes all non-holders of the Higher National Diploma and First Degree, graduates of institutions not recognised by the Federal Government and graduates of part-time programmes, etc. However, some institutions even as lately as the last mobilisation exercise assisted people in these mentioned categories to infiltrate the service corps.

“If found guilty, the two institutions being investigated will have appropriate sanctions meted out to them while any graduate fraudulently presented for mobilisation will be withdrawn from service.”

A statement issued on Thursday by the spokesperson of the NYSC, Abosede Aderibigbe, said the warning was part of resolutions made at the 2017 Batch ‘A’ pre-mobilisation workshop in Minna, Niger State, where Kazaure delivered a keynote address.

 Kazaure reminded CPIs that, as trainers of future leaders, they have the responsibility to guide their students to the right path rather than abet forgery and other criminal tendencies.

He also highlighted some other aspects of the mobilisation guidelines, which the institutions were expected to adhere to, and sought their cooperation towards the achievement of a seamless mobilisation process.

The workshop was attended by the NYSC managers and representatives of other stakeholders, including the Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board, National Universities Commission, National Board for Technical Education as well as Students’ Affairs Officers of CPIs.

The Niger Delta As A Microcosm Of Nigeria | Eugene Abels | TEDxPortHarcourt

Despite being abundant in human and natural resources, violence and decline in development prevail in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
