The State Coordinator, NYSC Osun State, Mrs Olayinka Abdulwahab, has appreciated the Osun Sector Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps for the uncommon but good treatment it doles out to Corps Members serving with it.
She made this known during her courtesy call to the Sector Commander, Federal Road Safety Corps, Osun State, CC Paul Okpe, on Wednesday.
Abdulwahab, on behalf of the Director-General, NYSC, thanked the Command for its continued support, particularly in respect of its close association and rapport with the Road Safety CDS Group.
Furthermore, Abdulwahab emphasized the importance of the Scheme as a veritable tool for imbibing discipline and skills in the majority of youths, and called for more support to overcome its challenges.
In his response, The Sector Commander, CC Paul Okpe, emphasized his strong advocacy for the continuation of the Scheme as a basis of national unity for the Nigerian people.
"I believe that the NYSC is a very good Scheme that should be allowed to continue running and not be abolished to allow young people have the experience. My first child is currently serving and that makes me so proud to identify fully with the NYSC", he said.
Speaking further, he called on the Scheme's management to fine-tune its processes and policies in order to accommodate new innovations, suit evolving times and stay relevant in the society.
He restated the command's open door policy for agency collaboration which he exemplified with his continued contact with immediate past Coordinators of the Scheme in the State, and urged the Coordinator not to hesitate in seeking their support.
The State Coordinator, Mrs Abdulwahab Olayinka, also visited the Osun Zonal Command of the Federal Fire Service to show appreciation for the Command's activeness in facilitating the success of the Scheme's objectives especially during the Orientation Course.
Abdulwahab emphasized how thankful the State arm of the Scheme is for the Command's continuous co-operation, particularly in respect of its eagerness when invited to come train Corps Members during Orientation Programmes.
Furthermore, she was full of commendation for the dedication demonstrated from time-to-time by the officers deployed by the Command during Orientation Programmes, attributing the good work ethics to the Zonal Commander.
In his remarks, the Zonal Commander, ACGF Daramola C. Taiwo, restated the Agency's readiness to render whatever assistance reasonably possible to the Scheme in line with the long-standing pact between the two agencies.
He emphasized the need for every human, educated or illiterate, to be fire-compliant and reasonably informed as to fire fighting and safety practices as fire is no respecter of degree or pedigree.
The visit ended with the exchange of souvenirs along with a photo session.
