No Room For Relocation Again — NYSC DG Tells Corps Members What To Do

The Director General of NYSC, Brigadier-General Yusha’u Ahmed, has urged corps members to be prepared to serve in any part of the country they were deployed for their one year mandatory service

He cautioned them against seeking for redeployment but would rather settle down & contribute their quota to the growth & development of their state of deployment

Addressing Batch A Stream 1 corps members during their cultural carnival in Anambra State orientation camp, the DG who was in the camp on the spot assessment visit also urged corps members to take their security seriously

He said: He said, “I urge you to respect the culture and traditions of your host community. Remain peaceful and resilient as you add value to the community you’re posted to. I’m sure many of you will choose to remain here after your service.

“Also take your security seriously. Take time to read the instructions in your manual and abide by them accordingly. Your security is our concern, but no one can secure you more than yourself.”

While underscoring the importance of Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurial Development of the Scheme, Ahmed urged corps members to take advantage of the programme to become not just self-reliant, but job and wealth creators after their service year.

“Skills acquisition is designed to make you independent, self-reliant and productive. Federal government is out to ensure youths are supported and empowered so they can stand on their own.

“Thousands of your predecessors who maximized the opportunity are now independent. Many enjoyed several such government support in collaboration with private organisations, including soft loans provided at no interest.”

The NYSC boss who was conferred with a chieftaincy title of Dike Ora I of Umuawulu by Igwe Joel Egwuonwu, traditional ruler of the community housing the camp, urged corps members to respect the culture and traditions of their host communities.

“When I was informed about the chieftaincy title, I didn’t hesitate because that’s exactly what the NYSC is preaching, unity and oneness, respect of our diverse and rich cultures.

“The states are doing their best, but we’ll continue to partner with them to ensure camp facilities, especially the halls receive a facelift to accommodate the increasing number of corps members being churned out annually.
