NYSC Speaks On Withdrawing Corps Members From Plateau

The Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brig. Gen. Suleiman Kazaure, has said the scheme will not withdraw corps members deployed to Plateau State.

Kazaure said this while reacting to the recent killing of over 200 persons in Plateau state by suspected armed herdsmen.

Kazaure, who was represented by Mrs. Victoria Okakwu, the scheme's Director of Planning, Research and Statistics, said,

"NYSC is a human organisation. We feel whatever happens in any part of the country. Just the way we handled the insecurity of the North-East, we will handle the situation in Plateau, Benue, and other volatile states. 
"We are very responsive. We will work in line with the NYSC Act to ensure that the lives of corps members are safe. 
"We will not withdraw our corps members from Plateau but we have plans to guarantee their safety. We cannot disclose the plans because security matters are not discussed in the open."
