This, it said, will address issues bothering on absenteeism from place of assignment and irregularity in signature which often leads to non-payment of monthly allowances and eradicate situations where its staff, connive with corps members for clearance. Speaking at the launching of the biometrics data capture, at the Kuje Area Council, Abuja, on Thursday, the Director-General, NYSC, Brigadier-General Johnson Olawumi, said the demonstration is the second phase of digitalising the scheme to enhance its performances. He stated that the biometrics data capture scheduled to kick-start this month , will take effect on the 2014 Batch C and 2015 Batch A corps members. Olawumi expressed hope that the process, which will be pioneered in Lagos and the entire Federal Capital Territory (FCT), would be replicated in other states of the federation by 2016. He further warned that the scheme will not condone effort by its staff to sabotage the initiative, adding that about five of its staff, who were found conniving with corps members on their monthly clearance are currently facing disciplinary action. He stressed that even with this, some of the erring members will be dismissed as a deterrent to others. The exercise witnessed the biometric capture of 15 corps members from Batch C, 2014 and 2015 Batch A. “I want to also say that the introduction of this biometric data capture for monthly clearance is also going to stop the practice of some of our own staff because the corps members who don’t stay in their places of primary assignment do not just do that on their own. “We will be telling ourselves lies if we say that we are not aware that they do it in connivance with some of our staff and you all know this, and that is why, as we speak now, about five of our staff, we have finished disciplinary actions against them in line with public service rules and with NYSC conditions of service, and some of them are going to be dismissed outrightly for conniving with corps members to leave their place of primary assignment. “This is the second phase of the computerisation process of NYSC scheme for the purpose of enhancing our overall performance,” the NYSC Director-General said.]]>
