Adhere to your oath of allegiance, NYSC tells corps members

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Tuesday urged corps members sent to Taraba state to take note of their oath of allegiance while serving in different communities.

Corps members were also urged to desist from engaging in the local politics of their host communities during the period of their mandatory service.

The director-general of the scheme, Brigadier General Muhammed Fadah, made the call at the closing ceremony of the 2022 Batch ‘B’ Stream one orientation course held at the NYSC orientation camp, Sibre, in Ardo Kola LGA of the state.

He noted that corps members must take note of oath of allegiance and their pledge to accept posting in good faith. He also called on them to perform their duties diligently and be guided by the provision of the NYSC Act, laws and rules of their work places.

Represented by the Taraba state coordinator, Mr. Anthony Nzoka, Fadah urged the corps members to sustain the spirit of patriotism, hard work, and resilience that they have imbibed during the orientation course.

He also enjoined them to undertake personal and group community development service projects that will help to uplift the living standard of the people of their host communities.

“I have received impressive reports on your participation in the entrepreneurial training conducted in camp under the NYSC SAED program,” he said.

He further encouraged corps members to build on the skills acquired by availing themselves of opportunities for post-camp training, as it will go a long way in empowering them for self-reliance.

Brigadier General Muhammed Fadah, assured the corps members that the NYSC management will continue to explore avenues of optimising the impact of the program and warned them against attending night parties, cultism, and acceptance of car rides from strangers.
