The Acting Director General of National Youth Service Corps, Mrs Christy Ifeyinwa Uba has advised the Corps Members deployed for the 2022 Batch ‘C’ Stream Two Service year to serve as good ambassadors of their institutions, families and NYSC.
Uba said discipline, loyalty, dedication, honesty and other good virtues should be their watchword during the service year.
She disclosed this on Tuesday in her swearing-in address to the Corps Members.
The Acting Director General, who earlier congratulated them on the successful completion of their studies, urged them to participate actively in all camp activities.
She advised the Corps Members to use the opportunity of the Orientation Course to make new friends and also promote the unity and integration of the country.
Speaking further, Uba admonished them to embrace the Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development,SAED, programme of the Scheme, which was designed to empower Corps Members with skills that will enable them become business owners.
She warned them not to indulge in cybercrime, unauthorized journeys and other social vices that can endanger their lives.
Uba added that the Social Media must be used to further unite the country instead of spreading unfounded information.
“Avoid the wrong use of Social Media. Always visit the NYSC Social Media platforms for up-to-date information. All services on camp are free”, she said.
