Borno and Yobe State Will Not Get New Corp Members - Minister

Listen to article

The Honourable Minister of Youth Development, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi has observed the on-going controversy and confusion over the fate of would-be corps members originally posted to Borno and Yobe States.

He wishes to state clearly that no new corps member would be posted to these states under the current 'Batch C' mobilization of corps members. The affected corps members will be called to camp and begin the orientation exercise in Benue State (for those initially posted to Borno) and Nassarawa State (for those posted to Yobe) immediately after the regular Orientation Camps close.

Thereafter, these corps members would be posted to all states of the federation, except for Borno and Yobe States.

The Honourable Minister wishes to assure all corps members that Government is working hard to ensure their safety and security, and commends them for their unalloyed service to Fatherland.
