NYSC Swears in 1,409 Corp Members in Bauchi

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has sworn 1,409 corp members for the 2023 Batch “C” Stream II Orientation exercise in Bauchi State.

The NYSC Coordinator in the state, Mrs Rifkatu Yakubu, disclosed the figure during the swearing-in ceremony at the NYSC Orientation Camp, Wailo in Ganjuwa Local Government Area of the state.

She said the prospective corps members comprise 746 males and 663 females.

According to her, the orientation course is designed to task the corps members physically, mentally, and emotionally, adding that the course content have been shaped and streamlined to instill physical and leadership qualities for future challenges.

“I urge you all to actively participate in these events and programmes as their confidential assessment commences right from the orientation camp,” she said.

The state governor, Sen. Bala Mohammed, described the scheme as a beacon of hope in Nigeria’s quest for a united and prosperous nation.

Represented by his deputy, Auwal Jatau, the governor said for 50 years, the scheme exposed millions of youths to the cultures and traditions of Nigerian societies.

The scheme, he said, also impacted the skills and experiences of the corps members to enhance those they had acquired in schools.

Mohammed enjoined them to feel free, integrate with members of the host communities, and participate actively in their developmental efforts.

“My dear compatriots, the success or otherwise of your service largely depends on the foundation laid during the orientation course.

“The orientation exercise is designed to prepare you for challenges you may face during the service year and beyond.

“I implore you to actively participate in all camp activities to equip yourself for challenges ahead adequately,” he said.

The governor pledged continued support to the scheme to achieve its objectives and improve the welfare and security of the corps members in the state. (NAN)
