The corps members were advised to strive to sustain their commitment and honesty of purpose in the process of the 2019 general election.
Mr Chukwu Chiwendu, the NYSC State Coordinator, revealed that the corps members were trained to acquire 12 skills in the camp.
“They acquired skills in various areas like ICT, Agro-allied business, bead making, pastries and catering amongst others.
“We have opened extra-ordinary window for these corps members to utilise their skills and become entrepreneurs in the race for scarce white collar jobs,” he said.
