The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has taken bold step to boost the training of Corps Members in vocational skills.
This is as the NYSC Director General, Brigadier General Yusha’u Ahmed, inaugurated a Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development Centre at the Delta State Orientation Camp in Issele-Uku.
In a statement, NYSC spokesperson Eddy Megwa, revealed that the DG commended the NYSC Delta State Coordinator, Alao Olusegun for his determination in completing the laudable one block of the six-room project which was conceived by Late Mrs Folake Ndubuisi-Johnson, a staff of NYSC Delta State Secretariat, who died in 2021.
Speaking at the inauguration, General Ahmed applauded the vision of the deceased staff who birthed the centre.
The Director General had advised the 2023 Batch ‘C’ Stream Two Corps Members to respect the constituted camp authorities and use the three-week Orientation period to establish long-lasting friendship.
At Anambra State Orientation Camp in Umuawulu/Mbaukwu in Awka South Local Government Area of the State, the DG warned them to be security conscious and avoid adventures that may expose them to danger.
He further admonished Corps Members to embrace the four cardinal programmes of the NYSC namely: Orientation Course, Place of Primary Assignment, Community Development Service and Winding-Up/Passing-Out activities.
In both camps, he was informed that the Corps Members have adjusted to the regimented camp life and are actively participating in all camp activities.
