NYSC Seeks Improved Police Protection For Corps Members At Orientation Camps

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has called for improved police protection at its orientation camps and lodges across the nation.

Fatima Balla Abubakar, the Chairman of the NYSC National Governing Board made this appeal when she led other members of the board on a courtesy visit to the Inspector General of Police, Alkali Baba Usman at the Force Headquarters in Abuja on Wednesday.

Abubakar lauded the Force for its unrelenting support for the Corps, requesting sufficient security for corps members who would participate in the 2023 general elections as ad-hoc staff.

“The Police have been able to keep our Corps members safe. You have always been giving us good officers to represent you on the NYSC National Governing Board. We also request for the deployment of more Police officers in our Orientation Camps," Abubakar said.

In his remarks, the newly appointed NYSC Director General, Brigadier General Yusha’u Dogara, implored stronger cooperation between both agencies. 

Responding, The IGP commended the scheme for its contribution to national development since inception.

“The NYSC is a very good Scheme and we will do everything possible to ensure that the Scheme succeeds.

”We are going to provide adequate protection for the Corps members that would participate as electoral officers during the 2023 general elections”, he said.

Usman gave his words to look into the NYSC Governing Board Chairman’s appeal
