He said “We keep making efforts to ensure that both the public and private sectors do not reject Corps members. The scheme is not also unmindful of the fact that Corps members often induce their rejections.


The Corps members should know there is a penalty for inducing rejection, “which includes extension of service.”

The DG assured corps members of their safety in their various orientation camps throughout the country.

The Katsina NYSC Coordinator, Hajiya Aisha Muhammed in her speech, told the Director General that 752 corps members had already been registered for the orientation service.
