Gov. Oluwaseyi Makinde of Oyo State has
charged the 2023 Batch ‘A’ stream II youth corps members deployed to the state
to leave a legacy in their various host communities by rendering selfless
service to the people.
He made the call on Tuesday at the closing ceremony of the 2023 Batch ‘A’ stream II orientation course for members held at the National Youth Service
Corps (NYSC) permanent orientation camp in Iseyin, Oyo State.
The governor, who was represented by the Commissioner for Youth and Sports, Mr Seun Fakorede, also urged the NYSC members to make their impact felt in their host communities by embarking on projects that would add value to peoples’ lives.
He urged them to be role models at their various places of primary assignment,
especially the ones posted to teach in schools so as to influence the lives of students positively.
He called on the youth corps members to shun all forms of anti-social behaviours.
The NYSC Coordinator in Oyo, Mr Abel Odoba, admonished members to relate cordially with the people of the host communities, avoid unnecessary journey and steer clear of any act of indiscipline.
He noted that “if the proposed NYSC Trust Fund got an approval from relevant authorities, it would enhance the provision of conducive camp environment and needed facilities during orientation programme.’’
The 2,129 NYSC members deployed to the state have been posted to different places of primary assignment across the 33 local government areas of the state.
