Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola has charged corps members to imbibe the virtues of hard work, patience and humility during and after the service year.
He urged the corps members deployed to the state to complement the gestures of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) and the government by being good ambassadors and advocates of peaceful co-existence in Nigeria.
Governor Oyetola spoke on Thursday, at the Official Opening and Swearing-in Ceremony of the 2019 Batch ‘B’ Stream ll Orientation Course at the NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp, Ede, Osun State.
He called on the corps members to live up to the scheme’s objectives of fostering bridges of love, harmony and productive integration across the country.
Oyetola , who was represented by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Prince Wole Oyebamiji admonished the corps members to channel their energy, vigour and drive towards the achievement of national lofty ideals and aspirations.
He warned them to abstain from vices such as drug abuse, advance fee fraud, kidnapping, robbery, cultism, violence and cyber-crimes.
Describing youths as the most productive segment of the Nigerian population, he submitted that the nation’s plans for the future cannot be actualised without the involvement and active participation of the youths.
He charged them to key into national policies and programmes designed to take the country to the next level of socioeconomic and political development.
While pledging his administration’s commitment to continue to ensure the welfare and improved standard of living for corps members deployed to the state, Oyetola urged them to see Osun as ‘home away from home’, saying, “Our people, as you will find out for yourselves, are hospitable, friendly and caring”.
He called on the corps members to put on their thinking cap right from the camp by initiating meaningful community development projects in their respective places of primary assignment.
