The Director-General of National Youth Service Corps, Brigadier General Suleiman Kazaure has cautioned corps members against attending night parties, making lone movements and embarking on unnecessary journeys during their service year.
Kazaure gave the warning on Friday while addressing Corps Members deployed to Bayelsa State for 2018 Batch “B” Orientation Course. He also advised them to utilize the opportunities of service year to empower themselves towards becoming wealth creators.
He said NYSC introduced the Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development programme into the Orientation Course content in order to enable Corps Members become job creators and not job seekers.
He added that the era of salaried jobs has gone which has rendered millions of youths unemployed across the country. The NYSC boss said diligence, loyalty, patriotism and self determination are essential ingredients that every potential successful entrepreneur must abide with.
Speaking further, he urged the Corps Members to add value to their host communities by providing their felt needs through developmental projects.
“Don’t leave your host communities at the end of the service year without adding value to them.
Try and leave good legacies and also remember to add value to yourselves as you continue your service year. I urge you to avoid night parties, lone movements and unnecessary journeys,” Kazaure said.
