The Director General of the National Youth Service Corps, Brigadier General Muhammad Kaku Fadah has admonished Corps Members to avoid acts that can endanger their lives during after the service year.
The Director General gave the admonition in his address at the closing ceremony of the 2022 Batch ‘B’ (Stream II) Corps Members deployed to Ondo State.
General Fadah, who was represented by the NYSC Ondo State Coordinator, Mrs. Victoria Nnenna Ani said that Corps Members should refrain from staying out late, attending night parties, visitation of dangerous places and acceptance of car ride from strangers.
“As you proceed to your places of primary assignment, I urge you to be security conscious at all times. Meanwhile, we are in constant liaison with security agencies and other stakeholders with the view to ensuring your safety as well as addressing other essential needs for a fulfilling service year”.
The NYSC boss said that he had received impressive reports on their participation in the entrepreneurial trainings conducted in camp under the NYSC Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) programme.
He said, ‘I encourage you to build on the skills acquired by availing yourselves of opportunities for post-camp training as this will go a long way in empowering you for self reliance and I wish to assure you that management will continue to explore avenues for optimising the impact of the programme’.
While reminding them that the oath of allegiance which they pledged to accept their posting in good faith, enjoined them to perform their duties with diligence and be guided by the provisions of the NYSC Act and Bye-Laws as well as workplace rules and regulations.
The 951 corps members who enlisted in the orientation course three weeks ago will now commence earnestly the second cardinal of the NYSC programme and report to the places of primary assignment.
