Igbo group faults posting of corps members to the North

PROMINENT Igbo leaders, on the platform of Oganiru Ndigbo, have kicked against the posting of Igbo graduates for the mandatory National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme to the crisis-ridden northern states.

They said the action amounted to sending their children on suicidal mission.

In a petition they wrote to President Goodluck Jonathan, which was copied to the Senate President, Speaker, House of Representatives and Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), the group’s Senior Executive for Corporate Development, Emeka Maduewesi; Legal Officer, Victor Aguku and Secretary-General, Gaius Ndukwe Onu, asked the government to review the action.

“We hereby declare that it is heartless and insensitive to post Igbo and Christian graduates to the North in disregard of the current security situation and will hold the President and NYSC director-general responsible for any of them that loses his/her life to Boko Haram and religious extremists”.
