Unethical practices: NYSC probes, blocks 1,000 corps members’ account
The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has blocked the accounts of about 1000 corps members nationwide who had tried to compromise its staff on posting and redeployment, its Director-General, Brig. General Shuaibu Ibrahim, said on Wednesday.
According to him, although the NYSC was still investigating the incidents, anybody involved would be disciplined accordingly.
Ibrahim stated these in an interview with journalists at the Public Service Institute of Nigeria in Abuja after declaring open the 2020 inspectors development programme.
The programme has its theme: “Optimising the ideals of the scheme through effective utilisation of the NYSC inspector.”
THE PUNCH had reported the suspension of the accounts of corps members belonging to the 2021 Batch A, Streams 1 and 2, who sought redeployment from the original states they were posted to.
While some of the affected corps members were said to have sought redeployment from some states, especially in the North because of insecurity, a few others, however, sought redeployment on health grounds, among others.
Besides cancelling the redeployment, the NYSC was said to have also suspended their accounts and stopped their monthly allowance.
