NYSC DG, Ahmed tasks corps members on national unity


Members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) have been advised to utilize the opportunities of their three-week orientation course to foster national unity and integration among themselves, irrespective of tribal and religious differences.

The NYSC Director General, Brigadier General YD Ahmed, gave the advice today in his address to the 2023 Batch ‘C’ Stream One Corps Members undergoing orientation at Kaduna State Temporary Orientation Camp at Government College, Kurmi Mashi, Kaduna.

He urged them to accept their deployment to Kaduna State in good faith, make friends during and after the orientation course and also respect the diverse cultures of residents of the State.

General Ahmed warned the corps members against night travelling while he also appealed to them to always be security conscious.

“Don’t travel at night and wherever you are posted to, try and be security conscious.


“The essence of the service year is to expose you to different cultures apart from your own so that you can appreciate others”, he said.

He warned the corps members against improper dressing, adding that violators of NYSC-approved dress codes would be adequately sanctioned.

Speaking further, General Ahmed admonished them to acquire skills through the NYSC Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development in-camp training programme and make themselves employers of labour.

While giving the camp situation report, the NYSC Kaduna State Coordinator, Mr Hassan Taura, said the corps members, comprising 655 females and 766 males, have all exhibited a high sense of discipline since the commencement of the orientation exercise.
