NYSC tasks Corps Members On Unity
The National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, has advised Prospective Corps Members deployed for the 2022 Batch ‘C’ Stream Two Service year to promote the unity and integration of Nigeria.
The Acting Director General of NYSC, Mrs. Christy Uba stated this while making a nationwide virtual address to the Prospective Corps Members and Camp Officials.
Mrs. Uba urged them to serve as good ambassadors of their institutions, families, and NYSC.
She said discipline, loyalty, dedication, honesty, and other good virtues should be their watchword during the service year.
The Acting Director General, who earlier congratulated them on the successful completion of their studies, warned the prospective corps members against cybercrime, unauthorised journeys, and other social vices that can endanger their lives.
She added that social media must be used to further unite the country instead of spreading unfounded information.
“Avoid the wrong use of social media. Always visit the NYSC social media platforms for up-to-date information. All services on camp are free”, she said.
Speaking further, Uba advised them to use the opportunity of the Orientation Course to make new friends and also participate actively in all camp activities.
She admonished the corps members to embrace the Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) programme of the scheme, which was designed to empower corps members with skills that will enable them to become business owners.
