NYSC: DG tasks corps members on security



NYSC DG urges Corps members to be security conscious.

The Director-General of the National Youths Service Corps (NYSC), Brig. Gen. Sulaiman Kazaure, on Sunday, called on Corp members serving in Zamfara state to be security conscious and cooperate with security agencies.

Kazaure said this while addressing the NYSC 2017 Batch B at the Permanent Orientation Camp in Tsafe, Tsafe Local Government Area of the state.

Naija News gathered that Kazaure was in the state in continuation of his nationwide tour of NYSC orientation camps in the country.

The DG urged the corps members to report any breach of security or any suspicious movement to the security operatives.

“You should avoid night party, travelling without permission, you should always move in group and make sure that you report to the security agencies on any activities you are engage in.

“You should feel free while serving your mother Land, we have made adequate arrangement with security operatives to give effective security for you in Zamfara,’’ he said.

However, the DG directed the state NYSC office not to post corps members to areas with security threats.

Kazaure, therefore, charged the corps members to take advantage of the Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development Programme (SAED) during the orientation exercise to be self-dependent after service year.

“Part of efforts to address the problems of unemployment in this country, the Federal Government introduced SAED as part of the NYSC activities. This is to train corps members on various skills for them to be self-reliant after the service year.

“We all know the issue of unemployment in this country, we all know that the white collar jobs are no more available today. So pay attention to SAED programme, so that you can learn what will be good for your future,’’ Kazaure said.

He added, “As leaders of tomorrow you will determine the future of this country. You should be patriotic, disciplined, honest and hard working for good future of Nigeria.”
