Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has warned Ministries Departments and Agencies (MDAs) in the state against rejecting corps members posted to them.
El-Rufai gave the warning in Kaduna on Monday at the end of orientation course for the 2,450 National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members deployed to the state under the first stream of 2015 batch ‘B’.
He said that the government would view with seriousness any case of rejection of corps members by any agency.
“I am fully aware that the major challenge of corps members after the orientation course is rejection by prospective employers.
“To this end, I wish to use this medium to remind MDAs in the state not to reject corps members posted to them because it is against the state government policy.”
Represented by the Commissioner of Sports, Youth and Culture, Mr Daniel Dan’auta, the governor promised the corps members, an enabling environment to discharge their responsibilities.
El-Rufai called on Nigerians to always promote national unity and integration in line with the objective of the scheme.
The governor also noted that a sustainable economic development would only be built on a sound educational foundation.
Earlier, the NYSC Coordinator in the state, Muhammed Momoh, advised the corps members to respect the custom and tradition of their host communities.
He thanked the government and people of the state for their support to the NYSC over the years.
