Pay Attention To Skill Acquisition, Entrepreneurship, Ambode Tells Corp Members

 In Lagos State, no fewer than 2,482 Batch ‘B’ members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) joined their counterparts across the country to commence a three-week orientation programme.

Governor Akinwunmi Ambode charged the corps members to pay special attention to the Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) as a well-thought-out initiative to develop, empower and prepare them for life after service.

A breakdown of the figure showed that the batch comprises 918 males and 1,564 females who have successfully completed and graduated from tertiary institutions from within and outside the country.
Ambode described the orientation exercise as the beginning of a glorious and worthy journey in the service of fatherland.

Represented by Oluseye Oladejo, the Commissioner for Special Duties and Intergovernmental Relationships, Governor Ambode expressed the pleasure of Lagosians to welcome and receive the corps members, saying that they represented the vibrant agents of grassroots development to the nation’s Centre of Excellence.

“The NYSC was designed to serve as a medium for national unity and integration, while assisting in ensuring even spread of the much-needed professional manpower for socio-economic development in Nigeria. I am indeed happy to note that the scheme has over the years sustained the outstanding legacy of the founding fathers.

“I, therefore, wish to commend the management of the NYSC for their efforts which have continued to sustain the relevance of the scheme in the attainment of our national aspirations,” he stated.

Welcoming the corps members to Lagos, the governor urged the corps members to work hard to build upon and even surpass the achievements of their predecessors whose immense contributions to their places of the primary assignment were immeasurable.

Assuring them of the support of the state government, Ambode stated that the Employment Trust Fund established by the state was specifically meant to provide financial support to residents of the state and corps members deployed to the state who have gone through the camp and post-camp orientation training.

Earlier in his welcome address, Mohammed Momoh, the state coordinator of NYSC, vouched before the governor that the corps members had been of good conduct since the commencement of the orientation and demonstrated readiness to abide by the rules and regulations of the regimented life on camp.

Justice Opeyemi Oke, Chief Judge of Lagos, represented by Justice Oluwatoyin Ipaye, administered the Oath of Allegiance on the corps members followed by the sampling signing by a select member of the 2017 Batch B corps members.
