The Director-General, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brig.-Gen. Muhammad Fadah, says the scheme will continue to sustain transparent and credible mobilisation process of enlisting only qualified Prospective Corps Members (PCM) for national service.
Fadah made the committment at the opening ceremony of the capacity building workshop for deployment and relocation officers from the 36 State Secretariats of the Scheme including the FCT.
The workshop had as its theme “Equipping the Deployment and Relocation Officers for Greater Performance”.
Fadah, who was represented by the Director, Information and Communication Technology (ICT), Mrs Christy Uba, also said that the scheme would continue to tighten every loose end to enhance its security in the cyberspace.
He reminded the participants of the sensitive nature of their schedule and the need not to only uphold the trust reposed in them, but to always strive to be above board in the discharge of their duties.
He added that the scheme would not tolerate multiple registration, attempts to fraudulently enlist non-graduates for service, strange relocations or postings and other manipulations on the NYSC Integrated System.
“Management is seriously concerned about this development and has set up a committee to investigate these infractions with a view to further safeguarding the credibility and integrity of our data.
“I therefore enjoin you to play your part in our efforts to nip the problems in the bud,” he said.
The Director, Corps Mobilisation Department, Mrs Victoria Ango, commended the deployment and relocation officers for their services, adding that they needed more requisite knowledge to achieve excellent performances.
She said that the workshop was expected to refresh the participants and create an avenue to inspire dedicated staff to maximise their potentials.
Ango added that the workshop would also be used to harmonise the efforts of deployment and relocation officers and consolidate on the gains already made in standardising the scheme’s operations in the mobilisation process.
