2,210 NYSC Members Complete Orientation Exercise in Imo

A total of 2,210 members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) have passed out of the orientation camp and deployed to different parts of the state for their primary assignment.

During the passing out ceremony held at the NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp, Eziama Obaire, Nkwerre Local Government Area of the state, the Deputy Governor of Imo State, Mr Gerald Irona urged them to eschew every form of criminality, even as he charged them to be law abiding during their service year in the state.

“I urge you to shun the get-rich quick syndrome, which leads to various acts of criminality. Be ready to show love at all times and in all your undertakings. Support only those things that will contribute to nation-building.

“Avoid hate speech and don’t spread falsehood. Be loyal, disciplined and law-abiding,” Mr Irona stated while addressing the 2019 Batch B Corps members passing out after the compulsory 3-week Orientation exercise.

Continuing, he stressed that “In Imo State, we are determined to rebuild our value system, as well as infrastructure. We want to have an Imo State that citizens and inhabitants will be proud of.”

“I assure you that the state government will continue to support the NYSC scheme. I also assure you that the good people of Imo State will receive you cheerfully. I urge you to identify their needs and help in addressing them,” he added.

The Deputy Governor assured the NYSC officials that the state government will address their infrastructural needs, while continuing to create an enabling environment for the scheme to flourish in the state.

Earlier in his address, Imo State Coordinator of the National Youth Service Corps, Mr. C.J. Eloeboh described the Orientation exercise as designed to acquaint the corps members with “paramilitary skills, entrepreneurial training, values, as well as other contemporary issues.”

“The Course is also another veritable platform for the promotion of unity and integration, as well as the spirit of collective responsibility, discipline, perseverance and resourcefulness.”

He urged the corps members to be humble while discharging their duties, even as he charged them on selfless service to humanity.
