Corps Members need to be protected – Ondo NYSC COordinator
The National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, has threatened to blacklist local government councils as well as employers that fail to provide accommodation and security for corps members deployed to Ondo state.
The Ondo State Coordinator of the NYSC, Mrs. Grace Akpabio, said this when she paid a courtesy visit on the Jegun of Idepe in Okitipupa Local Government Area, Oba Batuga Akintoye.
She visited the palace to express her displeasure over the attack on some corps members at their residence in Okitipupa.
According to Mrs. Akpabio, it is callous and wicked on the part of some good-for-nothing individuals to inflict pains and psychological trauma on corps members.
In a remark, the Jegun of Idepe, Oba Batuga Akintoye, expressed shock over the incident and appealed to the state coordinator to allow him to take over the matter with the stakeholders and security agencies within the council area.
