NYSC members are secure in Niger— Coordinator



By Hammed Salawu, Minna
The Coordinator of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Niger State, Mrs. Funmilayo Ajayi, has dismissed report of withdrawing corps members for insecurity maintaining that the state is peaceful and safe for corps members .
Ajayi stated this in a press statement explaining that there has not been any reason for the management to contemplate withdrawing serving members from areas of primary duty to  insecurity.
She described media report insinuating withdrawal of corps members from parts of Niger state due to insecurity as total false and figment of the imagination of the reporter with the mission of misinforming the public.
According to her, “It is obvious that we do not have issues with the security and well-being of my corps members. I made it clear in my interaction with journalists that there is no part of the state where members can’t serve and that we will however not post members to places with security challenges if such situation arises”.
“It is rather unfortunate that the concerned media has chosen to misconstrue this statement to suit it predetermined Intention to cause unnecessary panic where it does not exist.
“I want to use this medium to call on corps members, parents and the general public to disregard the report of withdrawal of serving corpers from places of primary assignment due to insecurity. I assure you all that corps members are not under any security threat in Niger state”.
She advised journalists to check their stories before rushing to the press adding that NYSC is ready to partner with them for the development of youths.
