NYSC speaks on safety of batch B Corps members in Zamfara

The National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, has assured the 2,100 Corps
members posted to Zamfara State under the 2018 Batch `B' of their
safety during their service year.

Dahunsi Muhammad, the state NYSC Coordinator, assured that their
safety would not be compromised.

Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, on Wednesday, Muhammad
urged the corps members to drop any negative impressions about
Zamfara.State.

Muhammad said despite security challenges in some areas of the state,
corps members were safe, and their activities will be hitch-free.

He said, "You know, the NYSC posting policy does not allow us to post
corps members to security-challenged areas, and part of what we are
sensitising the corps members on in this three weeks orientation
course is the issue of security.

"We prepare them on security awareness such as moving in groups, not
staying late out at night, avoiding unnecessary and night travelling
among others.

"We also tell them to be familiar with security posts in their
respective areas and to know people around them."

He stated that the state government and NYSC management in
collaboration with the security agencies have been working together to
ensure effective protection of the corps members.

"I am, therefore, calling on the incoming corps members to drop any
negative impressions about Zamfara and disregard any negative news
report, especially on the social media, about the state.

"I want to use this opportunity to thank the state government and
other stakeholders for their support toward improving the scheme in
the state", he said.
