Corps members tasked to be self reliant

From Jimoh Ahmed, Ikare Akoko
Corps members have been charged to take steps that will lead them to financial prosperity and economic independence.

 A retired Director of the National Youth Service Corps, Alhaji Wahab Obomeile stated this when he addressed the 2019 Batch ‘B’ (Stream 11) Corps members deployed to Ondo State at the NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp, Ikare-Akoko.

 Alhaji Obomeile, a one time Director, Community Development Service at the Gowon House, headquarters of the scheme said that Corps members should not fold their arms and expect manna to fall into their laps ,but should rather strive to take mitigated risks that will advance their cause in life.

“My children in the service, the resources which will make you an outstanding entrepreneurs and captains of industries are already deposited in you and you need to take a very bold step of faith to make it happen.

 “I will recommend that you look for and read a book with the title ‘Rich Dad and Poor Dad’. The difference between the two is the step one took  and the complacency of the other”.

 The former NYSC Director who was a celebrated journalist that  made waves at the Daily Times of old, said the only way for Nigerian youths to break away from shackles of poverty is to embrace with seriousness Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) programme of the scheme.
