The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Director-General, Brig-Gen Sulaiman Kazaure has urged Corps Members to have faith in the corporate existence of the country and strive towards unity.
Kazaure said this while addressing the 2017 NYSC Batch 'B' Stream One Corps Members at the NYSC Orientation Camp, Fanisau, Dutse, Jigawa State.
"We must believe in our unity and we must have faith in our country." said Kazaure. He added that every Nigerian must strive towards the unity of the country.
The NYSC DG urged corps members to adhere to all camp rules as there is no absolute freedom in camp. "You cannot eat like before, camp life is regimented and you have to adjust your programmes", Kazaure said.
He admonished them to imbibe good character during and after their service year. He added that self determination and good moral virtues are essential qualities of every potential leader.
Speaking further, the NYSC Director-General advised Corps Members to embrace Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) programme of the NYSC Scheme which was designed to make them job creators.
He also urged them to respect the culture and tradition of their host communities.
During his visit to the NYSC Orientation Camp, Fanisau, Dutse, Jigawa State, the DG inspected camp facilities including Corps Members' hostels, toilets, kitchen among others.
Earlier in the day during the swearing-in ceremony of the 2017 Batch B Stream 1 Corps Members, Jigawa State Coordinator of the NYSC, Mr Michael Ashimedua Amolo, said the Corps Members have been responsive to camp activities since the commencement of the Orientation Course.
The Oath of Allegiance was administered on 2,037 Corps Members at the ceremony in Jigawa State Orientation Camp.
Jigawa State Governor, Alhaji Muhammadu Badaru Abubakar, who was represented at the ceremony by the Head of Service, Alhaji Muhammad Inuwa Tahir, commended the Corps Members for their involvement in the socio-economic development of the state. He lauded the NYSC Scheme for its Health Initiative for Rural Dwellers programme.
