NYSC says it will blacklist employers who help corps members to engage in truancy

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Lagos State has said it would blacklist any employer of labour that connives with corps members to engage in truancy during the service year.
The Lagos State Coordinator of Nysc scheme, Mohammed Momoh stated this at the camp closing ceremony for 2017 Batch 'B' Stream II Orientation at Iyana Ipaja camp, Lagos.

Mr. Momoh, urged corps members to obey the rules and regulations of the scheme as erring members would be sanctioned in line with Nysc bye-law.

The state coordinator, however, pointed out that some employers, who think they were being compassionate, sometimes connive with corps members to breach the rules and regulations of the scheme.

His words are as follow,

"I know that we have informally engaged them to tell them that what they are doing is not right.

"These are young men and women put under their supervision for them to mentor positively.


"A situation where, you are compassionate and you allow corps members to be absent without valid reason and without approval is not in the best interest of national service or the best of productivity of that young Nigerian.

"We know that we have informally engaged some of them and we hope the situation will not repeat itself because if it does, such persons will be blacklisted.

"Dear compatriots in national service, I want to assure you that the scheme and the nation is proud of you.

"You have been exposed to skills that are geared toward nation building as you are expected to positively impact on your host communities in various ways.

"You are to also bring out your ingenuity, creativity and innovativeness to help overcome the challenges of our dear nation", he said.
