By Princess Amodu

As the 2022 Batch ‘B’ Stream II of the NYSC ends their Orientation Course in Kabba, Kogi State, Director General of the Corps Brig. Gen. Mohammed Fadah has warned the Youth Corps members against boarding vehicles that are not from approved Motor Parks.

Fadah, who was represented by Kogi State NYSC Coordinator, Mofoluwasho Williams said the safety of the Corps members was Paramount to the corps and so they should take it serious in view of the security challenges in the country.

“I would like to reiterate our warning against unauthorized journeys and night trips because travelling at night will not only increase the risk of safety and accident, but also make rescue very difficult.

“You are, therefore, advised to always cut short your trips from six o’clock in the evening and pass the night at NYSC Lodges, military barracks and other locations officially designated as safe.

“Again, be weary of where you go and make sure you board vehicles only at approved motor parks so as to avoid falling prey to criminal elements in the society, ” he warned.

He also urged them to sustain the spirit of patriotism, hard work and resilience imbibed during the Orientation Course toward meeting the expectations of Nigerians by contributing towards the progress and development of the country.

The DG reminded the corps members of their oath of allegiance to perform their duties in the places of primary assignments with diligence in line with the provisions of the NYSC Act and Bye-Laws as well as workplace rules and regulations.

“While you’re expected to integrate into your host communities, appreciating and respecting their cultures, you shouldn’t engage in their local politics, which is a no-go-area for you.

“Endeavour to undertake personal and group Community Development Service (CDS) projects that will help uplift the living standard of the people of  your host communities.

“I have received impressive reports on your participation in the entrepreneurial trainings conducted in Camp under the NYSC Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) programme, so make good use of those skills to develop yourselves into successful entrepreneurs.

“Therefore, you must be wary of acts that portray negative image of the Scheme, especially vices such as drug abuse and trafficking, cybercrime and Advanced-Fee-Fraud,” he warned.

Our Correspondent reports that 11 corps members were given letters of commendation while 3 officials including security personnel were also given letters of commendation for outstanding performances while in the camp.
