Corps members urge to use their talents for nation-building

Governor Umaru Bago of Niger State has urged Corps members to channel their talents and energy positively to discover new ways to build the nation.

He said during the swearing-in of 2023 Batch C Stream 2 Corps members deployed to the state at the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Orientation camp in Paikoro LGA of the state.

Represented by the Commissioner for Youths and Sports Development, Alhaji Yahaya Gulbin-Boka, he expressed optimism that the corps members would lift the country to enviable heights.

“As corps members, you are automatically an agent of change, it is my ardent hope that you will lift the country to enviable heights,” he said.

He added that to achieve giant strides, corps members must prepare adequately for the orientation camp by being disciplined and obeying constituted authorities.

Bago advised them to participate in all camp activities, especially the Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) training and be security conscious at all times.

Earlier, NYSC Coordinator in Niger State, Mrs.Abdulwahab Olayinka enjoined the corps members to acquaint themselves with the provisions of NYSC Acts and Bye-Laws.

She advised them to avail themselves of SAED training and choose from any skill areas to become self-sufficient as white-collar jobs were not readily available.

Olayinka assured that NYSC will continue to work with relevant stakeholders for the success of the programme.
