Solomon Dalung Minister for Sport and Youth development, kicked against the act of rejecting youth corpers assigned to government office.  This came about due to what was done to a NYSC member that was sent on an assignment to the Budget office and was accepted.

Meanwhile the reason for the rejection was not made known,  As we all known things like this are not new to us in this part of the world where families share and distribute government office within themselves.

Read what Dalung says:

Government agencies cannot reject Corps members. It is unacceptable. Why will government agencies reject corps members? Do you pay them or is that there is no work to be done?"
The Minister reminded Government agencies and Parastatals that it is a government policy not to reject corps members posted to their offices.
"The National Youth Service Corp scheme is a creation of the federal government and is intended to involve the country's graduates in the development of the country. They are posted to states far from their states of origin intended for them to learn the culture of the indigenes in the place they are posted to. This is aimed at bringing about unity in the country and giving them an opportunity to learn about higher ideals of National achievement."
"Rejecting corps members will add to the profile of unengaged youths which will create tension. Therefore, everybody is invited to join hands to assist our young people through entrepreneurship and empowerment programmes or anything that can gainfully engage them and create wealth for their livelihood and sustenance."
