- NYSC DG advised corps members to serve as good ambassadors of their families and the NYSC.
National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) 2017 Batch B Members have been advised to avoid embarking on unnecessary journey that could be detrimental to their welfare during their service year.
The NYSC Director-General, Brig-General Sulaiman Kazaure, stated this while addressing the 2017 Batch 'B' Stream 1 Corps Members at Enugu and Abia State Orientation Camps respectively.
Kazaure emphasized that the safety and welfare of every corps member is a priority to the NYSC Management team.
He urged the corps members to follow laid down procedures and collect leave permit should they have genuine reason to travel in the course of their service year.
"Avoid unnecessary journey, seek permission and follow due process from your employer up to the NYSC".
The NYSC DG also advised them to serve as good ambassadors of their families and the NYSC in their places of primary assignments and host communities.
Speaking further, the DG admonished the Corps Members to participate actively in all camp activities adding that the Orientation Programme is the bedrock for a successful service year.
'If you want to organise night party, let it take place within your lodge and remember that you are not above the law as Corps Members," Kazaure said.
At Enugu Permanent Orientation Camp, the Enugu State NYSC Coordinator, Alhaji Ikaka Ahmed, informed the DG that hoodlums recently attacked the camp and carted away with some equipments.
He added that the Camp depends on power generating sets as the only source of power while he commended the GOC 82 Div. Nigerian Army for assisting the Camp with water tankers.
Ikaka also lamented lack of utility vehicles that would ease prompt discharge of official engagements.
Abia State Coordinator, Mrs Francesca Ifon, told General Kazaure that the Corps Members have been co-opted into various Camp Committees and were well-behaved.
Mrs Ifon appealed to the State Government for more assistance for NYSC programmes in the State.
