Represented by Mrs Amina Abubakar, Director, Human Resources, Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA), Osinbajo pointed out that there was an existing government policy directing MDAs against rejecting corps members.

The acting President also urged MDAs and private corps employers to assign challenging
responsibilities to corps members during their primary assignment.

On welfare of corpers, the acting president said: “The Federal Government is aware of the challenges that face the NYSC and its duty to mitigate these issues including security, deployment management and processes.

“As you step into your roles as service members, I commend to you the recently launched programme of the federal government, ‘Change Begins with Me’.

“This campaign is aimed at restoring national values and upholding all that is right through each and every one of us.

“You must all strive to fight the painful erosion of our social values as a result of greed and dishonesty. If change begins with each of you, there can be nothing that will impede the progress of this nation”.
