Urged to lead
The Director General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Mr Sulyman Kazaure, has urged corps members to lead the fight against corruption in their primary places of assignments.
Mr Kazaure explained that the future of the country is in the hands of the youth and they must live up as ambassadors and face the tasks ahead of them.
Speaking in Abia State during his visit to the Orientation Camp in Bende, Kazaure warned the Batch A, Stream II corps members against perpetrating acts of corruption in their places of assignment.
The DG who was represented by the Director of strategies and mobilization, Mr Frank Ekpunobi said, “Wherever we find ourselves we should try and kick out this monster called corruption, let us see Nigeria as our own country. Make Nigeria the best Nation in the world. Please promise Daddy (DG) that you will make Nigeria great.”
He, however, advised unemployed ex-corps members not to wait for white collar jobs, but insisted they should engage in legitimate businesses for survival.
“Don’t wait for ‘white’ collar jobs, even if it is recharge card or even buying and selling. Do any available legitimate business no matter how small it is. I don’t want my children, after service, to say there is no job. Create jobs for yourself.
The State Coordinator, Mrs Francesca Mfon thanked the Director General for the visit and said the orientation camp was facing erosion problem and electricity challenge and appeal to NYSC boss to intervene.
