Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, Suleiman Kazaure, warned government and private agencies against the habit of turning down corps members posted to their offices.
He said any agency that rejected a corpse member who are only meant to be trained, is breaching the law that established the service.
Mr Kazaure, a Brigadier-General was at the opening of the 2017 Batch ‘A’ stream One orientation course in Paiko, Niger state.
On the increment of corps members monthly allowances, Mr Kazaure said that such increment was predicated on minimum wage increment by the Federal Government.
He advised corps members to be disciplined and respect the culture and traditions of their host communities.
He also cautioned corps members against unnecessary journeys and night parties to guarantee their security in their areas of posting.
The state’s governor, Abubakar Bello had earlier advised the corps members to adhere to rules and regulations of the scheme during the period of service.
Represented by his Deputy, Ahmed Ketso, the governor assured the scheme of government’s support through the provision of adequate security for members in the state.
Mrs Theresa Arokoyo, the NYSC coordinator in state, said that 1,906 corps members had been registered for the Batch ‘A’ stream One orientation course.
