NYSC Is Tired Of Posting Challenges
The National Youth Service Corps is one compulsory scheme that many Nigerian graduates wish they could waive due to its many problems which starts with the posting.
Then comes the process of mobilization, the welfare of the corps members and the payment of monthly allowances.
But the NYSC is making the problems arising from posting one of its priorities.
They say they are strategizing on inter-agency data collection using modern Information Communication Technology (ICT) platforms to overcome the challenges.
This is what their Director-General, Brig-Gen Suleiman Kazaure, says.
Kazaure disclosed this at the 2018 Batch ‘A’ 3-day pre-mobilisation workshop tagged: “Enhancing Data Integrity in NYSC Mobilisation Process” on Thursday in Sokoto.
He said the effort was geared towards enhancing posting, mobilisation and other processes between corps members and their producing institutions.
The workshop was part of efforts to strengthen inter-agency collaboration towards achieving successful mobilisation.
Kazaure said the forum would facilitate exchange of ideas among stakeholders and promote harmonious working relationships that would ensure efficiency.
The DG thanked the National Universities Commission (NUC), National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), West African Examination Council (WAEC) and other corps producing institutions for their support to NYSC.
Sokoto State’s Commissioner for Youth and Sports Development, Alhaji Garba Tsitse, urged the NYSC management to always upgrade its systems and tackle emerging challenges on cybercrimes.
