The Director General of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brig. Gen. Nnamdi Okore-Affia, has called on those saddled with the responsibility of corps inspection to desist from practices capable of undermining the relevance of the scheme.
Okore-Affia made the call during the opening ceremony of the 2013 Northern States Inspectors Development Training Programme at the NYSC Orientation Camp, Keffi, Nasarawa State. Represented by the Director of Human Resources Management, Mrs Elizabeth Adimorah, the DG said it was imperative for inspectors, as field officers, to live above board, and act as role models to corps members, adding that a situation where they left their duties for corps liaison officers would not be tolerated.
Okore-Affia maintained that it was in recognition of the fact that there were teething problems faced by the scheme that the management deemed it fit to prioritise staff training and development to enhance service delivery.
In her welcome address, the Director of Corps Welfare and Inspectorate Department, Mr Emmanuel Obi, urged the participants “to take advantage of this workshop to sharpen your skills and become that ideal inspectors”.
