Mallam Abubakar Mohammed, the Adamawa State Coordinator of National Youths Service Corps (NYSC) said that about 1596 corps members out of the 2,126 registered under the 2018 batch “A” sought redeployment out of the state saying they left based on insecurity, marriage and health grounds.
He said the 530 corps members that concluded their orientation today (Wednesday) were not posted to serve in Michika, Madagali, Mubi North and Mubi South Local Government Areas, also for security reasons.
He also said that corp members were not posted to villages in Numan, Demsa and Lamurde local government areas because of herders/farmers clashes. “However, there are those who requested to be posted to Mubi, particularly married women who have their families there which we obliged,” Mohammed said.
He urged the people of Adamawa to appreciate corps members who decided to serve in the state by supporting them to give their best. In his address at the Wednesday closing ceremony of the batch “A” orientation course, Gov. Muhammadu Bindow said his government is committed to improving the welfare of corps members.
