The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members in Yobe State on Thursday joined others nationwide to hold this year’s  edition of the Corps Employers’ Workshop.
The Director-Genera of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier-General Shuaibu Ibrahim, represented by the State Coordinator, NYSC, Yobe State, Mrs. Hafsat Yerima, addressed the Corps members in Damaturu, the Yobe State capital.
He explained that the programme was for exchange of ideas on the improvement of their operations, especially through the provision of enabling environment for Corps members to render qualitative and efficient services.
His words: “In fulfillment of its objectives, the NYSC is promoting national unity and accelerated socio-economic development of the nation as well as instilling in our youths a tradition of industry at work and of patriotic and loyal service to Nigeria among other activities.
“The achievement of this and other objectives can only be sustained through the collective efforts of all stakeholders, including the managers of the Corps members”.
The DG pointed out that since the inception of the scheme, the NYSC Management/ Corps Employers’ Forum has enabled both parties to continually enhance their capacity for effective engagement of Corps members.
“We are thus able to position the young men and women on National Service as change agents and key contributors to the development of the country. This forum will also obtain feedbacks from the strategic stakeholders on the strength, weaknesses and potentials of the scheme as well as chart ways of strengthening its operations. This edition will also generate ideas that will enable the scheme to continually weather the prevailing storms of COVID-19, security, and other challenges”.
