The Director General of National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, Brig. Gen. Nnamdi Okore-Affia, has called on those saddled with the responsibility of corps inspection to desist from practices capable of undermining the relevance of the scheme.

Speaking during the opening ceremony of the 2013 Northern States Inspectors Development Training Programme at the NYSC Orientation Camp, Keffi, Nasarawa State, Okore-Affia, who was represented by the Director of Human Resources Management, Mrs Elizabeth Adimorah, said it was imperative for inspectors, as field officers, to live above board, and act as role models to corps members, adding that a situation where they left their duties for corps liaison officers would not be tolerated.

Having recognised the fact that there were teething problems faced by the scheme, the management deemed it fit to prioritise staff training and development to enhance service delivery, according to Okore-Affia.

Director of Corps Welfare and Inspectorate Department, Mr Emmanuel Obi, in his welcome address, urged the participants “to take advantage of this workshop to sharpen your skills and become the ideal inspectors”.
