Authorities of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) have dismissed the trending social media statement credited to the Director-General, Major General Shuaibu Ibrahim that he said the public should not “Criticize Buhari, Government Policies On Social Media”
“In a release made available to TheCheer News on Friday, the management said: “The attention of NYSC Management has been drawn to the above caption trending on the social media, purported to have been said by the Director-General.
“Management wishes to state that the caption is very misleading, and at variance with the admonitions of the Director-General to 2022 Batch “A” Stream Two Corps Members during an address to them at the NYSC Ondo State Orientation Camp.
“The Director-General advised the Corps Members to use the social media responsibly; in a way that will promote national unity and integration. He further counselled them to guard against the spread of fake news.
“The NYSC Chief Executive never made mention of the caption alluded to him. Interestingly, the body of the report trending does not equally contain that allusion.
Management wishes to plead with reporters to avoid over sensationalism and report things that are factual so as to avoid misrepresentation of issues.’
