The Director General of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier General Muhammad Kaku Fadah has implored corps members to always obey the NYSC bye-laws.
He gave this advise in a nationwide virtual address to the 2022 Batch 'B' Stream One Prospective Corps Members whilst also enjoining them to use the opportunity of the three weeks Orientation Course to initiate good relationship among themselves in order to promote national unity which the Scheme was established for.
Fadah further urged the Prospective Corps Members to participate actively in all the four cardinal programmes of the NYSC namely; Orientation Course, Community Development Service, Place of Primary Assignment and Winding-up/Passing-Out, so as to leave positive legacies in their host communities.
He urged them to abide by all camp rules, adding that anyone that violate the rules would be sanctioned accordingly.
General Fadah also advised the PCMs to be conscious of their safety and avoid unauthorised journeys.
He said "I implore you to sustain high level of discipline and enthusiasm and also familiarize yourselves with the provisions of the NYSC Act and the NYSC Bye-Laws. You must comply with all camp rules and regulations and continue to distance yourselves from cultism, drug abuse and other social vices.
You should also avoid using the social media for spreading fake news, fueling of hatred and other negative purposes.
I also encourage you to avail yourselves of opportunities for self-employment offered through our Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) programme by choosing from any of the skill areas and make yourselves available for the training. You are to also adhere strictly to the COVID-19 preventive measures throughout the Orientation period".
In his vote of thanks on behalf of his colleagues nationwide, the Kaduna State Corps Camp Director, Corps Member Nwankwo Fortune Chibuike KD/22B/0627 from Imo State, who congratulated General Fadah on his appointment as the NYSC Director General also commended his presence in Ekiti to monitor the Corps Members that participated in the Gubernatorial election.
