The Director-General of National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, Brig.-Gen. Yushau Ahmed has advised corps members to embrace entrepreneurial skills that will serve as their lifetime assets.

Ahmed gave the charge at the swearing-in of the 2024 Batch A, Stream I orientation course on Tuesday in Ede, Osun.

DAILY POST reports that a total of 1,126 corps members, comprising 573 males and 553 females, were deployed to Osun, in addition to the 1,017 others who joined them from Lagos for the three-week course.


The DG said the skills and values imparted to them during their orientation course would serve as lifetime assets, which would also guide their actions, urging them to recognise the potential within them, as they navigate the diverse activities which would serve as catalysts for positive change.

“Embrace the diversity of your fellow participants and it is through understanding and collaboration that you can strengthen the fabric of our national unity.

“The orientation course is not just a training programme but a foundation for building responsible youths who are equipped with necessary skills and values for meaningful contributions to the society,” he said.

According to him, the exercise should not be seen as a mere formality but a sacred commitment to the ideals of service, unity and patriotism.

Ahmed, however, said the scheme had a system of rewarding hard work and diligence, urging corps members to distinguish themselves as true patriots during their service year.

Also speaking, Governor Ademola Adeleke said the safety of all corps members in the state was paramount to his administration, assuring that no effort would be spared in creating an environment that would allow them to thrive.

Adeleke called on the corps members to engage themselves with acts that would further foster a sense of nationhood among them while in the state.

“Embrace your roles with dedication and passion, and let the values of diligence, integrity and selflessness guide your actions.

“May your experience be filled with valuable lessons, lifelong friendship and a deepened sense of purpose,” Adeleke said.
