NSIWC chairman warns employers to stop rejecting corps members

Naija News Today

The Chairman of the National Salaries Income and Wages Commission, Ekpo Nta, has decried the rate of rejection of corps members by some employers in the country.

According to him, every corps member must be given enabling environments in their place of primary assignments to contribute their quota to the socio-economic development of the country.

Nta, according to a statement by the Director of Press and Public Relations in National Youth Service Corps, Eddy Megwa, stated this when its Director General, Brigadier General Muhammad Fadah, paid him a courtesy visit in his office in Abuja.

He added that the greatest disservice to any corps member was rejection.

The NSIWC chairman, however, appealed to state governments to provide conducive orientation camps with modern facilities to train corps members who are deployed to their states in vocational skills that would make them employers of labour.

“Going towards 2023 budget, all MDAs should be required to state in their budget, what they are going to provide for NYSC so that it is statutory and the country can plan with that”, Nta advised.

He also condemned the under-utilization of corps members, adding that all employers of labour should adhere strictly to the posting policy of NYSC, which covers education, health, infrastructure among others.

The NSIWC chairman also described NYSC as one of the institutions that have continuously helped in uniting the nation through the deployment of corps members to the nooks and crannies of the country.

Fadah thanked Nta and his team for assisting the NYSC especially in terms of the upward review of corps members’ monthly allowances.

He added that there was the need for every stakeholder to nurture the youths very well and prepare them for higher responsibilities as good leaders.

Fadah also promised a stronger collaboration between NYSC and the commission.

“The NYSC is a bridge between the youths and the larger society. We thank you most sincerely for what you have done,” General Fadah said.

The DG added that the NYSC Trust Fund Bill has passed though the National Assembly but awaiting Presidential assent.

He said when approved, the fund would make business grants available to deserving corps members to start their vocational business in like with the skills they acquired during service.

I've been a freelance web developer and blogger for a while now and have a passion for both. Like most men, I'm a football lover; I prefer playing to watching matches.Personally, I believe with dedication there's no limit to what we can achieve. Yes, we all have the power and ability to do that.

2023: Anambra bans campaign posters in public places

Naija News Today

Nigeria is witnessing a progressive decimation of terrorists and insurgents in order to secure the country, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has said

The Minister made the remarks in Calabar at a joint press conference with Cross River State Governor, Prof. Ben Ayade, during a ceremony to mark the 2022 World Tourism Day.

He said infrastructure and adequate security are necessary for tourism to thrive.

“I am bold to say here that in the last three months, even our worst critics will agree that the government has gotten the handle on security issues. In the area of insecurity, I want to assure you that the worst is over,” Alhaji Mohammed said.

He said when the situation in the country in 2015 is compared with what obtains in 2022, there is incontrovertible evidence to support the government’s position that the worst is over.

“It’s unfortunate that people who comment on insecurity fail to start from where we were in 2015 and where we are today.

“In 2015, the entire North East of the country was a no-go area. When I was appointed Minister in 2015, one of the first tasks I embarked upon was to go with a team of foreign and local journalists to the North East, in particular to Maiduguri, Kaure, Konduga and Bama, to see firsthand the effect of Boko Haram insurgency

“That’s on 5th December 2015 and I needed air force jets to escort me from Maiduguri to Bama, which is about 68 kilometers. Apart from our convoy, we didn’t see any other vehicular traffic on the road. All the houses in Bama were destroyed by Boko Haram. There were no schools in the North East and no hospitals. Telecom services were destroyed,” the Minister said.

He said at the moment, the North East is once again accessible because of the government’s efforts.

On the economy, Alhaji Mohammed said the activities of vandals in the Niger Delta is causing the government to lose about 700,000 barrels of crude oil per day, thereby denying the government huge revenue and foreign exchange.

He however expressed delight that the renewed deployment of technology and the synergy between government security forces and private security companies have achieved success in the fight against oil bunkering.

Mr Ajulo reminded candidates stated that the Electoral Act placed restrictions  been placed to prevent the usual electoral malpractices that start even from the period of the campaign.

“Section 92 of the Electoral Act, 2022, provides for prohibition of certain conduct at political campaigns,” he noted.

He said places designated for religious worship, police stations and public offices should not be used for political campaigns.

“By the above provision prohibiting the use of public offices for election campaigns, it is safe to submit that palaces of our traditional rulers that are maintained with public funds are categorised as public offices,” he stated.

The lawyer said a credible election remained the basis for conferring legitimacy on any government in a democratic dispensation.

Section 92(3) of the act says, “Places designated for religious worship, police stations and public offices shall not be used for political campaigns, rallies and processions; or to promote, propagate or attack political parties, candidates or their programmes or ideologies.”
