Buhari Gives Automatic Employment To 173 NYSC Members

The Federal Government courtesy of President Buhari on Monday, gave letters of employment to 173 ex-Corps members for immediate appointment into the various ministries in the Civil Service. The Federal Civil Service Commission [FCSC] officially handed over appointment letters to the 173 ex-National Youth Service Corp [NYSC] who served in 2012, 2013 and 2014 for distinguishing themselves during their service years.

Presenting the letters to the recipients in Abuja, FCSC Chairman, Deaconess Joan Ayo commended the awardees for exhibiting exemplary conduct and discipline throughout their years in service. ”You are a special breed, congratulations for this achievement. You did not only excel in the Universities but even in your NYSC.

It shows you are hard working that is why you have been able to distinguish yourselves among your peers”. She said: “Your appointment is on merit and that is why it has nothing to do with the federal character principle.  “Your selection is devoid of political influence. It has nothing to do with political affiliation.

“You are a special breed and I really congratulate you. You have exemplified good character and hard-work. It is natural for you to display integrity and patriotism, and that is why you are here.” Ayo admonished the new appointees to sustain the character that earned them the award “and even improve on it”.

”You have also displayed high sense of integrity, while others were sleeping, you were just there to contribute your quota to the survival and development of the nation. Few months ago, you were made to undergo various induction training by this commission, all geared towards preparing you for the task ahead. Today, as we present to you these letters, you are expected to visit the office of your state commissioner for proper documentation”.

Out of the total of 173 members, 164 got Presidential Awards while the remaining nine were introduced into the scheme via the aegis of Hope Alive, a brainchild of the NYSC. It will be recalled that the Presidential awards was earlier bestowed on the corps members in March this year following the announcement made by Former President Goodluck Jonathan at the Presidential Villa in Abuja following an induction course which the Corp members undertook two months ago.
