Withdraw Payment Of Corps Members Not Willing To Fight Insecurity – Fayemi

The Governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi, has called on the Federal Government to recruit a large number of people to join the police and the military, on a short service or otherwise to tackle the security challenges in the country.

The Chairman, Nigerian Governor’s Forum (NGF) stated this in an event in Ibadan, Oyo State on Tuesday.

Fayemi stated that members of the National Youths Service Corps (NYSC), could be trained during orientation camps to help tackle the security issue in the country.

Fayemi: Nigeria Insecurity Challenges Beyond Military

According to Fayemi, corps members who are not willing to join the military services can serve in their community without pay.

“By available statistics, we need a minimum of 200,000 personnel to boost the fighting power of our men.

“This number is very large and a potential financial and logistic nightmare, yet we cannot delay any further.

“The ungoverned spaces needed to be closed up quickly by motivated men with the singular objective to save the nation. That takes us to the number two issue of financing and arming large recruitment.

“With this, we can use the existing orientation camps to train willing and able graduates to reflate the security personnel under a special arrangement that will be worked out.

“That way, the fund that is currently deployed to the NYSC can be used with just some additional funding, which could be sourced through a national emergency fund for the next five to 10 years.

“Those who cannot join the military services can serve in their community without pay if we must still retain the NYSC for everyone.

“To incentivise those who may volunteer to serve, they will have a separate certificate and medal of honour in addition to having priority for military, paramilitary and civil or public service recruitment after service.

“We also need to encourage investment in the real sectors that can engage people and reduce unemployment, which is a major source of insecurity.”
