As the 2021 Batch ‘C’ Stream One Orientation Course ends tommorrow, Corps Members have been advised to accept their posting in good faith, settle down in their host communities and contribute their quota to national development.
NYSC Director-General, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim gave this advise yesterday at FCT Orientation Camp Kubwa, Abuja, while addressing Corps Members.
He said they must add value to their host communities by providing projects that would improve the standard of living of the residents.
The DG admonished the Corps Members to put in their best in their places of primary assignment, obey constituted authorities and serve as responsible role models to the younger ones.
Ibrahim also advised them to avoid unauthorised journeys, but obtain approval from the NYSC Management if it is compulsory for them to travel.
He warned that no Corps employer is authorised to grant permission to Corps Members to travel, except NYSC.
He urged the Corps Members to board vehicles only at designated motorparks, adding that the Scheme has liaised with relevant stakeholders like the FRSC, transport unions, among others to provide roadworthy vehicles for them while travelling and also ensure their safety on the highways.
Speaking further, General Ibrahim urged the Corps Members to use the social media wisely to promote the unity and integration of the country and not to promote fake news.
He added that the Trust Fund, if actualised would be used to build new Orientation camps, expand the existing camps, maintain camp facilities among others.
Ibrahim urged them to continue with the Post-Camp training of the NYSC Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development programme and strive to become employers of labour instead of seeking for the unavailable salaried jobs.
