PRINCIPAL of Al-IMan Schools in Nasarawa State, Ustaz Ahmed-Tijani yesterday appealed to the management of the National Youths Service Corp, NYSC, to reconsider its earlier stand of not posting corps members to schools in the state.
The principal, who made the appeal while speaking to newsmen in Lafia, noted that the appeal became imperative considering the importance of corps members to the education sector, as well as the socio-economic development of the country.
It would be recalled that a corps member who served in Al-Imam School in Lafia installed internet facilities and painted part of the school buildings as part of her community development service and claimed that the whole structure was built by her, a claim that did not go down well with the school management which instituted a legal action against the corps member.
“There is misunderstanding between the school and a corps member who served in our school last year. A corps member installed internet facilities which make the NYSC vow not to post corps members to our schools across the state.
“Now that the matter has been resolved, we are appealing to the management of the NYSC to post corps members to our schools across the state, considering the importance of corps members to the education sector as well as to the socio-economic development of the country.”
He maintained that the school had a harmonious working relationship with the NYSC authorities since its establishment over 25 years ago, and stressed the need for the scheme to have a rethink by posting their members to serve in the institution.
Reacting to the appeal, NYSC state coordinator, Mrs. Christy Uba said that the state office of the scheme was still awaiting directives from its national headquarters in Abuja on the issue.
