The management of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Ondo State has rubbished reports that made the rounds on social media over the weekend that the secreteriat had posted some corps members to religious organisations especially churches.
In a statement issued on Sunday, the state NYSC described the story as “untrue, mischievous, misleading and containing fallacies capable of tarnishing the good image the Secreteriat is enjoying in the public eye.”
“Ondo State cannot work at crossroads with the directives or policy of the National Youth Service Corps Scheme where it is clearly stated that no corps member should be posted to religious organisations. We have never done so and we do not intend to compromise on this very sensitive posting policy,” it pointed out.
The statement said that “apart from the four key areas which the policy is clear and unambiguous about, other areas we service because of their voluntary nature of assignment are Non Governmental and Cultural Organisations.
It stressed that “any posting done in error or contrary to the established policy is reversed immediately it is brought to the notice of the management.”
