The National Youth Service Corps has organised a workshop for its Freedom of Information Act Desk Officers in order to enhance their competence.

FOIA Desk Officers from the 36 State Secretariats including FCT attended the workshop with the theme; "Mainstreaming the Freedom of Information Act into Effective Sevice Delivery in NYSC Scheme".

The workshop was also targeted at consolidating the successes recorded by the Scheme regarding FOIA and also sensitive the public on the Freedom of Information Act.

While declaring workshop open, the Director-General, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim said since the enactment of the Freedom of Information Act in 2011, NYSC has been at the forefront of ensuring total compliance with the provisions of the Act.

He appealed to workshop participants to ensure effective record management, effective liasion as well as prompt response to enquiries from Members of the public.

"The Scheme has had to grapple with challenges, which are sometimes ocassioned by apparent lack of knowledge of our policies and operations by a section of the public. I therefore charged Nigerians to familiarize themselves with the NYSC Act so as to understand better, the operations of the scheme and its role", he said.

General Ibrahim added that apart from promoting national unity, the selfless services rendered by the young men and women on national service has brought positive transformation in the socio-economic development of the country over the years.

The Director, Press and Public Relations in her address said the FOIA workshop is an annual event where Desk Officers gather to be refreshed with the FOI current trends and innovations which provides them with the requisite platform to interact and rub minds with one another on the challenges they face while discharging their duties.

Don not get stuck at the well of argument. Let God be your vindicator. Let Him fight your battles. He will vindicate you better than you can vindicate yourself.
