NYSC: Corps members get fresh warning NYSC 1024x576

Brig. Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim, Director-General, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), has warned corps members against unnecessary journeys, “especially at night”.

Ibrahim gave the warning on Tuesday in Mangu, when he paid a familiarisation visit to the Plateau State NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp, NAN reports.

“Investigation has revealed that most corps members, who had lost their lives in motor accidents, traveled at night.

“I have held a meeting with the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), and the Nigerian Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), to form a synergy to ensure that no corps member is allowed to travel once it is 6 p.m.

“We have resolved that NYSC staff would be stationed at various motor parks to ensure that the corps members comply,” he said.

The NYSC boss further cautioned corps members against boarding vehicles on the road instead of the motor parks, saying that doing that was “very dangerous”.

He also cautioned them against using the social media to spread hate speeches and religious bigotry, urging them to rather use it to promote peace and unity.

Ibrahim said that the essence of the orientation exercise was to promote national unity and integration, and also remove stereotypes.

51 ghost workers discovered in Ondo 20191210 075226

Following the verification of workers within the Local Government Service of Ondo State, 51 non-existing workers, otherwise known as ghost workers were uncovered.

Disclosing this was the state’s Head of Service, Mr. Dare Aragbaye at the NUJ Press Centre, Alagbaka, Akure, the state capital while addressing newsmen on the 2019 Public Service Week celebration programme with the theme: “ICT and Innovative Governance: Panacea For Youth Unemployment and Migration.”

While stressing that the move was made by the state government towards shedding off the overloaded wage bill of the state, Aragbaye maintained that the 51 workers refused to show up despite extending the screening exercise by about two weeks.

The HoS, however, said that the state government has stopped salary payment of the discovered ghost workers due to their failure to appear for the verification exercise conducted for its workforce.

Speaking on the new minimum wage for workers in the state, Aragbaye said that consultations were

ongoing with labour leaders in the state to out the modalities on the implementation of the new minimum wage.

He revealed that Governor Akeredolu was eager to hear what the final outcome of the consultations in order for him to append his signature on the implementation of the new wage.
