You are posted to serve and not to evangelise - NYSC DG tells Corps Members

The Director General of the National Youth Sevice Corps (NYSC), Brigadier-General Zakari Kazaure, has warned Corps Members posted to serve in Taraba State against evangelism.
He insisted that the concern of the corps members should be to serve and not to go and indoctrinate the host communities.
Kazaure said that on Wednesday in Jalingo when he was on a visit to Corps members currently undergoing orientation course at the NYSC camp in Taraba.

He said,
"I can assure you that we don't wait till the election before working for the security of Corps members.

"We have put in place measures to ensure that your accommodations are well guarded and officials on the ground have instructions to collaborate with the relevant security agencies in your respective places of Primary Assignment to guarantee your safety.

"Let me, however,  warn you that you are posted to go and serve and not to go and evangelise. Your concern should be to serve and not to go and indoctrinate your host communities. Conversion of souls is not your concern," Kazaure said.

He, furthermore, urged Corps members to conduct themselves well and be good ambassadors of their states, tribes, and schools.
