I gave report some time back that there is fire on the mountain for redeployed NYSC corps members, especially those redeployed to Lagos, well the story seems far from over, With-in the week, not less than 3,500 corps members that were redeployed to Lagos have been issued a query over their redeployment, with claims that their redeployment letters were faked. Disciplinary committees have been questioning the corps members affected, trying to find out who they had to pay to acquire the letter and how it all transpired. The allowance of most of this corps members have been stopped since last month and the scheme still owes some of them for some earlier months.

Rumor has it, this is the reason why allowances (Allawee) for the month of April is yet to be paid as the NYSC is still deciding on how to handle the issue.

But the question in the air is, are the Corps members really responsible for the present predicament or the government that has failed to restore the security of their lives in the north, the same government that you would never find any of their wards serving in those areas.

These redeployed corps members passed through not less than ten offices before settling down in their new states with these same letters, and are only been told now after about five months that their letters were fake, I perceive incompetence.

Instead of punishing these poor corps members by with-holding their allowance (I wonder how they are expected to survive), address the real issues and let them concentrate on their service to humanity.
