Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State yesterday inaugurated Batch ‘B’, Stream 1, corps members in the state.
Ortom, who gave the charge at the Permanent Orientation Camp at Wannune, in Tarka Local Council Area, implored them to serve their fatherland with unreserved loyalty and dedication.
The governor urged them to have confidence in their abilities and continue to rely on their God-given talents that have taken them this far.
He also enjoined the corps members to take the skills acquisition and entrepreneur development (SAED) programme training in the camp seriously.
He said: “Overall, I have no doubt in my mind judging from the enthusiasm and patriotism that you have so far exhibited. You will imbibe the noble ideals of the scheme, as you partake in this very important orientation programme.”
In her address, the Permanent Secretary for Bureau for Youths and Sports, Mrs. Helen Adimanyi, lauded the corps members for their show of high degree of diligence, discipline and patriotism.
Adimanyi further charged them to be good ambassadors of their various institutions and Nigeria.
Also, NYSC state Coordinator, Mrs. Eno Herbert Awakessien asked them to be their brothers’ keeper, respect camp officials and report suspicious movements around them to the appropriate authorities.
In Osun State, Governor Rauf Aregbesola charged the 2,292 corps members posted to the state to see the orientation as an opportunity to have a new sense of responsibility.
He asked them to shun every partisan move that may undermine the role of the NYSC during elections. “You must maintain the integrity which have been set by your predecessors during election duty in country,” he said.
The state coordinator, Emmanuel Attah, said Aregebsola’s administration has taken the state out of the doldrums of under development and stagnation.
He acknowledged the efforts of the NYSC in keeping the nation one, and lauded the scheme for being at the forefront of youth engagement in the country.
