Mr Anthony Nzoka, the Coordinator, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Taraba, on Tuesday advised corps members deployed to the state to avoid situations that could compromise their personal security.
Nzoka gave the advice while speaking at the closing of the 2022 Batch ‘C’ Stream 1 orientation course in Sibre, near Jalingo.
The coordinator urged corps members to be ambassadors of the scheme by creating positive impact in their communities of primary assignment.
“As you receive your posting letters and move to your places of primary assignments today, I implore you to accept your postings in good faith and be true ambassadors of the Scheme.
“I urge you to make positive impact in the communities where you have been posted to serve, look inwards and identify their challenges
“And initiate community development projects that will have direct impact on their lives.
“You must adhere to the NYSC bye-laws and be law abiding citizens and avoid situations that may compromise your personal security.
“It is imperative to remind you that the Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurships Development (SAED) programme was introduced as a measure to curb graduate unemployment and dependence on government.
“It will also serve as a veritable tool in promoting entrepreneurship, Job creation and economic independence.
“I wish to encourage you that the in-camp training is only an introductory aspect of your chosen skill to broaden your knowledge and reap the dividends of SAED programme.
“You will have to continue with the post-camp training for you to attain perfection,” he said.
Nzoka commended the Taraba government, the media and security agencies for their continuous contributions to the success of the scheme in the state.
Miss Nancy Dike, a corps member lauded the scheme for coming up with qualitative training programmes during the orientation course.
