Mrs. Dawuda Bamai, the Coordinator, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Ebonyi, has urged youth corps members to embrace entrepreneurial development and support the Federal Government on national growth.
She gave the advice during the closing ceremony of the 2021 Batch ‘B’ Stream ‘I’ orientation course on Monday at the NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp, Old MacGregor College at Afikpo.
She urged them to display good character and imbibe the spirit of hardwork “to leave an indelible footprint before the completion of service year.”
The coordinator noted that 1,563 corps members were registered and sworn-in for the scheme in the state.
He added that “I therefore urge the corps members to accept their posting in good faith and feel free to go to every nook and cranny of Ebonyi and leave indelible footprint in the sands of time.
“Posterity will surely remember you for leaving the state better than you met it.
“My dear compatriots, it is a well-known fact that our dear nation is facing some challenges, but I want to assure you today that by the grace of God, we will surely overcome it.
“To do this, we need to be committed to good character, hard work, honesty, commitment to excellence and courage, self-discipline and perseverance.
“Show compassion, show respect to others, maintain self-respect and promote unity,” she said.
The coordinator commended Gov. David Umahi for the support and encouragement given to the scheme, as well as the security and other collaborating agencies.
Bamai tasked the corps members to be good ambassadors of their families, the NYSC scheme, their various states and the entire nation. (NAN)
