DG NYSC Tells Corp Members to Accept Their Posting In Good Faith

Brigadier-General Yusha’u Ahmed, the Director General of the National Youth duty Corps (NYSC), has urged corps members to fully embrace their deployment places and diligently complete their one-year required duty.

He recommended them to assimilate into their designated localities and contribute to their growth, discouraging them from pursuing redeployment.

During a cultural fiesta at the Anambra State orientation camp, the DG emphasized the need of putting the safety of Batch A Stream 1 corps members first.

As quoted by The Nation, 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.”

Emphasizing the need of developing skills and encouraging an entrepreneurial mindset inside the Scheme, Ahmed urged corps members to seize the chance to become self-sufficient and become job and wealth creators after their service year. He declared:

“Skills acquisition is designed to make you independent, self reliance 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 maximize the opportunity are now independent. Many enjoyed several of such government support in collaboration with private organizations, including soft loans provided at no interest.”
