NYSC tasks  inspectors on ways to end challenges militating against scheme-


The Director-General of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brig.-Gen. Yusha’u Ahmed, has urged  NYSC  Inspectors in the South-South Zone to proffer ways to ending challenges militating against the operations of the scheme.

Ahmed made the call on Monday at the 2023 Inspectors Development Programme (IDP) organised for NYSC inspectors in the South-South.

The theme for the programme which held in Asaba, Delta, was: “Enhancing the Capability and Competence of the NYSC Inspectors For Optimum Productivity”.

In the D-G’s keynote address read by Mr Ladan Baba, NYSC Director, South-South Area Office, he said that the IDP was designed for NYSC Officers within the Inspectorate cadre to build their capacity and competences in the discharge of their duties.

“Over the years, the IDP has proven to be very effective as each of the editions has continuously produced sets of more dedicated and informed inspectors as amply demonstrated in the quality of their output.

“The 2023 edition of the IDP is targeted at inspectors employed in year 2022 and those who have not been opportune to participate in any IDP in their careers as Inspectors.

“The 2023 edition of the programme is also significant as it is coming at a time when the scheme is celebrating 50 years of establishment.

“The scheme is now poised to look beyond the achievements of the last fifty years through the adoption of innovations in its operations.

“The 2023 IDP theme was chosen with the aim of looking into the future and how NYSC would continue to evolve irrespective of any challenges to become the leading light of youth organizations in Africa.

“Notwithstanding the challenges militating against our operations, we, the operators of the scheme, must be ready to evolve ways and means of surmounting those challenges.

“Inspector are also to remember that as field officers, you are mentors, role models and a locus parentis to the corps members,” Ahmed said.

Prof. Robert Dode, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Academics and Research, Dennis Osadebe University, during his paper presentations, urged the inspectors to be open minded as leaders of change.

“Forge consensus through partnerships and think the wellbeing of NYSC, the teeming youths and Nigeria.

“You, as staff of NYSC, are agents of development and productivity. That you are here suggests to me that your organisation value you as established leaders and up-coming leaders.

“In our respective offices, let us build a public service that can deliver on specific organisational and state mandate. Yes, here at NYSC, you can do it,” he said.

Mr Ladan Baba,  NYSC Director, South-South Area Office, urged the participants to listen attentively to the papers packaged so as to be properly groomed to carry out their jobs without any hitches.

“The major Cader of the NYSC is the inspectorate Cader, since inception of the scheme, inspectors were trained on the rudiments of the job at the grassroots.

“We will ensure that the inspectors within the South-South Area office were armed to carry out their job diligently.

“The inspectors should ensure that they get the challenges and liaise appropriately with the appropriate government establishment to ensure that their job is carried out at the grassroots level,” he said (NAN)(nannews.com.ng)
