Kwara assures corps members of safety

The Governor of Kwara State, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, on Tuesday, assured National Youth Service Corps members posted to the State of their security during their service year.

AbdulRazaq gave the assurance at the closing ceremony of the orientation course for the 2023 Batch ‘C’ Stream I corps members held at the NYSC Orientation Camp at Yikpata in Edu Local Government Area of the State.

Represented by his aide, Alhaji Saadu Salahu, the governor reaffirmed the commitment of the state government not only to the security of the youth corps members but their general welfare.

“Accordingly, we are in constant liaison with security agencies and other stakeholders to ensure your safety as well as address other essential needs, for a fulfilling service year,” the governor said.

AbdulRazaq, however, enjoined the youth corps members to be security conscious at all times.

“In particular, I advise you to avoid risky engagements such as staying out late at night, attending night parties, visiting dangerous places, and accepting car rides from strangers.”

The governor also asked the youth corps members to shun drug abuse and trafficking, cybercrime, advanced-fee fraud, and other vices capable of truncating their future dreams.

He enjoined them to sustain the commendable patriotic zeal and high level of discipline they demonstrated while at the orientation camp.

“My dear compatriots, the next phase of the service year is of great significance as the entire nation looks up to you for your expected roles in advancing the unity and development of our fatherland. I therefore enjoin you to sustain the spirit of patriotism, hard work, and resilience which you have imbibed during the orientation course,” AbdulRazaq charged the youth corps members.

The governor also charged them to build on the skills they have acquired during the vocational and entrepreneurial training at the camp by availing themselves of opportunities for post-camp training.

He urged them to accept wherever they were posted to for their primary assignment and impact positively on their host communities.

The Governor also appealed to employees not to turn down youth corps members deployed to their organisations, but should rather create enabling environments for them to operate and excel.

He enjoined stakeholders, including the traditional rulers of the host communities to give maximum support to the youth corps members posted to their communities.

He praised the State coordinator of the NYSC and his team for doing a great job at the camp.

This paper reports that a total of 2,300 youth corp members passed out at the ceremony.
