Urged to lead

Daily Trust - - DIGEST -

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.
