NYSC DG Urges Corps Members to Embrace Patriotism, Hard Work, Resilience


The Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier-General YD Ahmed, has charged Corps members to embrace the spirit of patriotism, hard work, and resilience as they begin their primary assignments.

Speaking through the Yobe State Coordinator, Hajiya Salamatu A. Muhammad, at the closing ceremony of the 2024 batch ‘A’ Stream 2 orientation course in Dazigau permanent orientation camp.

Ahmed urged the Corps members to sustain the spirit of patriotism and hard work, which they imbibed during the orientation course.

He reminded them of their oath of allegiance and the need to accept posting in good faith.

He also commended the Corps members for their participation in the entrepreneurial trainings conducted in camp under the NYSC Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) programme.

Ahmed encouraged them to build on the skills acquired and avail themselves of opportunities for post-camp training, which will empower them for self-reliance.

The NYSC, he said, will continue to liaise with financial institutions and other stakeholders to provide start-up loans to enable them actualize their business dreams.

Ahmed advised the Corps members to be good ambassadors of the NYSC, their families, and institutions of graduation, and to avoid acts that can portray the Scheme in bad light, such as drug abuse, cybercrime, and spreading of fake news.

He also enjoined them to perform their duties with diligence, integrate into their host communities, and undertake personal and group Community Development Service Projects to uplift the living standard of the host communities.

Finally, Ahmed warned the Corps members against unauthorized journeys, night trips, and speculative activities on social media, urging them to visit official channels for clarifications.
