Osun State is a beautiful and peaceful State with peace-loving and accommodating people “.

” Dear compatriots in service, I urge you to join us to make our economy bigger and stronger by embracing skills acquisition and entrepreneurship. Be creative and innovative as graduates by not only thinking of consuming but rather begin to think of what you can produce or offer as a solution to human needs and problems”.

Earlier in his introductory address, the NYSC Osun State coordinator, Mr Agbor Ndoma appreciated Mr. Governor for always working the talk as all promises made by him to see to the renovation of the Orientation Camp has been fulfilled.

While talking about the purpose of the Scheme, Mr. Agbor Ndoma said it was created to raise a crop of disciplined, detribalised and patriotic youths.

He said further that the orientation course which is the first phase of the service is a three-week regimented programme designed to adequately equip corp members for the challenges that lie within and ahead of the service year.
