The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has appealed to the people of Oyo State to “warmly play host to corps members’’ posted to their communities.
The call is contained in a statement by NYSC’s Assistant Director, Press and Public Relations, Mrs Funsho Olusoji released on Friday in Ibadan.
“The NYSC management enjoins the good people of Oyo State to warmly play host to corps members in their various communities as most of them are visiting the South West for the first time,’’ Olusoji said.
She said the 2017 Batch “A’’ Stream II orientation course for over 2,000 Corps members posted to Oyo State would end on Aug.15.
Olusoji said that the closing parade would take place at the NYSC permanent orientation Camp, Iseyin.
“Gov. Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State will preside over the terminal parade where he will deliver an address and declare the orientation course closed,” she added.
The corps members deployed to the state were inaugurated on July 26 by Justice Solomon Akinteye, who represented the state’s Chief Judge, Justice Munta Abimbola.
Olusoji said that the corps members posted to the state had undergone rigorous military drills, citizenship and leadership training, professional lectures as well as personal development exercises.
She commended the zeal and enthusiasm with which the corps members embraced the skills acquisition and entrepreneurship development training.
