1,277 NYSC members relocate from Kano State

A total of 1,277 of the 2,150 corps members posted to Kano State for the 2012 ‘Batch B service year have so far sought for redeployment to other states.

The state NYSC Coordinator, Alhaji Bashir Yakasai, disclosed this in an interview in Kano on Monday.

He said that of those, who sought redeployment, 1,108 were posted to other states on health grounds and for security reasons, while the remaining 169 were re-deployed on marital ground.

He, however, said that the state NYSC had also received more than 50 corps members re-deployed from other states to Kano.

On the issue of rejection, the coordinator said that the number so far rejected by employers was negligible considering the number of corps members, who relocated to other states.

“With the population of Kano, the remaining 873 corps members are grossly inadequate to cater for the state,” he said.

The coordinator, however, assured the corps members serving in the state of adequate security during their one year stay in the state.

Yakasai commended the state government for giving support to the scheme and called on individuals and corporate organisations to contribute towards the success of the scheme in the state. (NAN)


  1. This very worrsome that such a large number of corps members have all relocated back to their state of origin or residence, I personally don’t blame them for their actions because they don’t fill save in our region anymore. This is a wake up call on every right thinking. Northerner to stand and fight all those evil. One’s among us.
