TheÂ Minister of Youth Development, Alhaji Inuwa Abdulkadir, has announced at a press conference in Abuja on Tuesday, that corps members participating in theÂ National Youth Service Corps will be posted to troubled states in northern Nigeria.Â
The PunchÂ newspaper reports thatÂ Abdulkadirâs positing supersedesÂ an earlier concession granted to the affected corps members by the Director-General of the NYSC, Brig.-General Nnamdi Okore-Affia.
The DG, had in a statement on July 5 directed corps members posted to Yobe to proceed to Nasarawa State, while those scheduled to have their orientation in Borno were directed to Benue State.

Abdulkadir said any other form of concessional posting of corps members apart from the grounds of health and marriage would require constitutional amendment.Read more Â»GistOnly
