We have responsibility towards NYSC– Ondo CP

The Ondo State Commissioner of Police, CP Abayomi Peter Oladipo has declared that his command has a responsibility towards the National Youth Service Corps, especially as it concerns the welfare of corps members.

The Commissioner of Police made the declaration when he hosted the NYSC management team in Ondo State led by the State Coordinator, Mrs. Victoria Nnenna Ani at the command headquarters, Akure.

Oladipo, who recalled with nostalgic feelings his participation in NYSC programme in Imo State during the 1986/87 service year disclosed that he would not have been where he is today without the laudable Scheme.

“Helping NYSC is like helping ourselves because the solid foundation laid by the founding fathers of the noble Scheme in which I am a proud beneficiary and ambassador is what has propelled me to where God has placed me today. If not for the Scheme that prepared me for the sensitive position I am occupying today, my story would have been different and I appreciate the Scheme for re-positioning the future of our teeming Nigerian youths worldwide”.

“NYSC has remained a strong and unbroken cord uniting this beautiful country. So, in the natural context, the graduate youths, who despite the mounting pressures from family and loved ones choose to stay in their comfort zones move to other regions to strengthen integration and understudy the differences and similarities of the constituents that made up the country, then the Nigerian Police owe them a duty to protect them from all threats and harms, and this is what we have been doing since the establishment of the Scheme close to 51 years ago”.

The Police Chief who hails from Lagos State but has traversed the length and breadth of this country lauded the NYSC managers for the quality of mentorship the Scheme has been bequeathing to the Nigerian graduate youths.

“Kudos should be given to the managers of this laudable Scheme right from the top management team to the operational hierarchy in all the states of the federation. Youths are highly sensitive, mobile and love to do things their own way irrespective of the consequences but NYSC is doing a great job in building, moulding and mentoring these productive strata of the economy to becoming responsible leaders of the country in a foreseeable future” he said.

Earlier in her speech, the State Coordinator, Mrs. Victoria Ani congratulated the Commissioner of Police on his well deserved appointment to oversee the Command in Ondo State.

The State Coordinator who has been following the trajectory of the new Police helmsman in the Sunshine State asserted that she had no doubt that the state will benefit immensely from his wealth of experience and leadership prowess.

“The CP Sir, I am confident that you will bring your wide and varied experience to bear on the security architecture of Ondo State. The capacity you displayed in previous appointments and assignments will no doubt assist you to a larger extent by ridding the state of criminal elements. The success recorded when you were DCP in charge of Criminal Investigation Department (CID) in Oyo State some years back laid credence to this”.

Ani disclosed that her mission at the Ondo State Police Headquarters is to gather intelligence and security support for the corps members serving in the state and those that will be reporting to camp for the 2024 Batch ‘A’ (Stream 1) orientation course.
