Brigadier General Y.D. Ahmed, the head of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), has urged the members of the 2023 Batch ‘C’ Stream One to work on projects in their host communities that will raise the living standards of the locals.

According to him, every corps member must actively participate in Community Development Service (CDS), one of the four mandatory cardinal programmes of the system, in order to be eligible to collect the certificate of national service.

Today, while visiting the NYSC orientation camps in Sokoto and Kebbi State, Gen. Ahmed made this announcement to the incoming corps members.

He urged prospective volunteers to first consult with NYSC and learn about the requirements of their host communities.

Find a way to finance the implementation of your projects in your host communities. Please be aware that it is a crime to use your stipend money for anything other than personal expenses.

Do not get into a car with an unknown driver. When traveling, only use authorized parking lots and automobiles.

Keep in mind the safety precautions you were taught about back at camp and don’t put yourself in harm’s way, he said.

Alhaji Yakubu Yaro Usman, the NYSC state coordinator for Sokoto, made a statement on the corps members stationed at the Wamakko camp. He praised them for their dedication and respect for the law.

Mrs. Okolo Aghata Banki, coordinator for the state of Kebbi, said a total of 154 camp officials are working together, including both NYSC employees and those from other agencies.

She revealed that the camp currently houses 1,088 registered corps members.

She noted that the security and overall well-being of all corps members in the camp remain major priority.
