Director General, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier General Suleiman Kazaure, has charged Batch ‘A’ corps members, currently undergoing orientation in Benue State, to respect the culture and tradition of the people.

Kazaure, who gave the charge, yesterday, while on routine visit to camps across the country, also urged them to learn the languages of their host communities

Represented by the NYSC Director of Corps Certification, Lady Clara Anekwe, the DG enjoined them to obey camp rules. He stressed the need for the members to leave positive footprints in their places of primary assignment through Community Development Service (CDS) projects, and pay attention to skills acquisitions programmes, to aid self-reliance after the service year.

In her welcome address, the state NYSC Coordinator, Mrs. Eno Herbert Awakessien, told the DG that the security of corps members has been stepped up through collaboration with security agencies.
