The Director-General of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier General Muhammad Kaku Fadah, has admonished corps members to embrace vocational training for self-empowerment in absence of white collar jobs.

 
He said NYSC has made adequate arrangements for every corps member to undergo three weeks free vocational training while in camp, through the Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) programme.
 
He stated this while addressing corps members at the NYSC Kogi State Orientation Camp in Asaya, Kabba Council of the state.
 
“I urge you to embrace vocational skills, which is the only way to make you self-reliant, instead of waiting for the unavailable salary jobs,” Fadah said.
 
The Director General also advised corps members to beware of people with questionable characters, but abide by the rules and regulations of the scheme throughout their service year.

He advised them to ensure personal safety and avoid risky adventures that may lead to unpleasant consequences.

While in Kogi camp, Fadah laid the foundation of a 15-room participants hostel, saying it will enhance effective performance of the users during Orientation Courses.
 
The NYSC Kogi State Co-ordinator, Williams Mofoluwaso, said a total of 1,450 prospective corps members were registered as at the time of the visit.
