Governor Umaru Al-Makura of Nasarawa State has warned employers in the state against rejection of corps members posted to their organisations for national service.
Mr. Al-Makura gave the warning at the closing ceremony of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) 2016 Batch ‘B’ (Stream 2) orientation course for corps members at the Magaji Dan Yamusa Orientation camp in Keffi on Monday.
The governor, who was represented by his deputy, Silas Agara, described youth corps members as national asset that should be treated well and received with open arms.
He said that the patriotic zeal exhibited by the corps members leaving their states was enough for employers of labour to accept them.
“These patriotic citizens of our great nation have shown great desire and commitment to help build our country.
“Therefore, I call on employers of labour in the state to exhibit the same character by accepting all corps members posted to their organisations.
“Employers in the state must no longer reject corps members posted to their
place because of the sacrifice they made and their contribution to developing our state and country for the benefit of all,” he said.
The governor assured the corps members that necessary machinery would be put in place to ensure a smooth service year and end rejection and marginalisation of some corps members.
