Members of the Nation Youth Service Corps (NYSC) have been reminded that they were transferred to regions outside their states of origin to create an enabling environment to meet people from different tribes and ethnicities in order to build meaningful relationships.
The Director, Corps Welfare and Health Services, Mr. Omotade Ayodele Benjamin, made this known during a visit to the 2021 Batch A, Stream II members at the NYSC permanent orientation camp, Ede, Osun State on Monday.
While advising the corps members not to compromise their personal security by engaging in illegal activities, Mr. Omotade enjoined them to stay in their original state of deployment.
In reminding the corps members that the nation and the people of the host communities needed their services and expertise to better their lives, he appealed to them to embrace the skill acquisition and entrepreneurship development programmes offered during the course of the service year.
In his words, “I urge you to participate actively in both the in-camp and post-camp training of the Programme.
“I want you to leave a lasting legacy behind as that is only what will stand the test of time.”
