NYSC: Permanent Site Ready For Next Batch Of Corps Members — El-Rufa’i

The Governor of Kaduna State, Malam Nasir El-Rufa’i, announced that the next batch of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members to be deployed to the state will be camped at the state’s permanent orientation site.

Elrufa’i, who was represented by the Commissioner for Human Services and Social Development, Hajiya Hafsat Baba, made this statement on Friday at the induction ceremony for the 790 corps members deployed to the state for the 2023 Batch 'A' Stream '1'.

The orientation course at the permanent site, located in Sabon Gayan, Chikun LGA, had been suspended due to security concerns and was being held at a temporary site inside Government College in Kurmin Mashi, in the metropolis.

Elrufa’i confirmed that the permanent site was now ready for use and that adequate security measures, such as raising the height of the perimeter fence and digging ditches near the fences of the site, have been implemented to ensure safety in the camp.

“When the current corps members are done with the orientation course on 14th of February, the next to be deployed to the state will report at the newly constructed permanent camp,” he said.

Elrufa'i also emphasized that the orientation program was designed to familiarize the corps members with all the information necessary for a successful service year.

“It is also designed to inculcate in you the spirit of discipline, leadership and self-reliance skills expected of future great leaders,” he said.

He urged the corps members to approach their service with renewed energy, determination, and dedication towards the advancement and growth of the country.

He also encouraged the corps members to be fully dedicated and to participate in all camp activities, saying they are designed to prepare them for the challenges of their national service.

“We urge you to strive hard to bring about positive advancement in your host communities and relate cordially with the residents,” he added.

The Governor also reminded them to abide by the NYSC rules and regulations and to avoid any actions that would lead to disciplinary action.

He emphasized the state government's commitment to supporting and encouraging the corps members throughout the duration of their service.

Also speaking, the NYSC state coordinator, Agbor Obim, emphasized the importance of all camp programs and activities, noting that they are mandatory and meant to equip the corps members for the tasks ahead.

Obim urged the corps members to fully participate in all camp activities and take advantage of the training opportunities provided, with the goal of becoming self-sufficient and creating jobs rather than seeking them at the end of their service.

He restated the importance of respecting camp officials and following rules, warning that any form of indiscipline would not be tolerated.

He also expressed gratitude to the Kaduna state government, military and paramilitary organizations, and other key stakeholders for their support of the NYSC scheme.
