NYSC inducts 753 corps members in Borno, assures of adequate security

By Abbas Bamalli

National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), on Friday, inducted a total of 753 Batch ‘B’ Stream I corps members deployed in Borno for their mandatory one year service to the nation.

Speaking at the induction in Katsina, the NYSC Coordinator in Borno, Mr Mohammed Adamu-Jiya, assured the corps members of adequate security in the camp.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that corps members posted to Borno have been camping in Katsina State due to the security situation in the state.

Adamu-Jiya said that NYSC had been collaborating with all stakeholders to ensure the safety of the corps members from their arrival to their departure from the camp.

“By the grace of God, since the corps members’ arrival, there has not been any form of security breach on camp,” he said.

The NYSC coordinator further stated that the arrangement already put in place regarding the welfare, security and safety of the corps members in the state was commendable.

He noted that the corps members, comprising 417 males and 336 females, had seen the arrangement put in place by all the security agencies to ensure their safety.

According to him, it is, therefore, incumbent on the corps members to engage fully in all the camp activities, especially the skill acquisition training.

He pointed out that by engaging fully in the skill acquisition training, they would have the opportunity of gaining the experience which they might not have had before.

According to Adamu-Jiya, the purpose of the skill acquisition training introduced by the Federal Government is to make the corps members self-reliant.

“The orientation course content has been carefully put together to equip our youths with necessary skills to enable them navigate the many challenges of leadership during and after service.

“Now that you have been inducted into the service corps, I want you to view this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to proffer your modest solutions to the developmental challenges of our nation.

“Furthermore, I enjoin you to approach the service with open mind for the onerous task of nation building,” he said.

The NYSC coordinator also commended the Katsina and Borno state governments for the regular support they had been giving the scheme.

NAN reports that the oath of allegiance was administered to the corps members by the Katsina State Chief Judge, Justice Musa Abubakar, represented by Justice Kabir Shu’aibu. (NAN)
