‘Don’t Overburden Your Families’, NYSC Tells Passing-Out Corps Members

By Adadainfo

Ex-corps members that served in Ebonyi State were Thursday told to learn skills and establish ventures to be self-reliant.

Mrs Bamai Mercy, the state coordinator, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), stated this during the passing-out ceremony of the 2021 Batch B Stream Two corps members in Abakaliki.

She told them, “Don’t wait for white-collar jobs, but establish small businesses. Don’t go and be at the mercy of people there, or overburden your parents. Start something small, and keep growing. NYSC is ready to facilitate micro-credit facilities for such ventures.

“If you need money to start up your business, come to NYSC; let us know the skills you have acquired and write your beautiful business plans, and then you will be established.

“Be good ambassadors of NYSC and discourage youths, especially those into internet fraud, from engaging in such crimes.

‘’Be good ambassadors of your families. Do not tarnish the name of your families. As you go out there, show that you are leaders. There are other youths there. Some are into yahoo; go out and discourage them.’’

She said out of 480 corps members that served in the state, thirteen absconded while the rest discharged their duties to their fatherland meritoriously.

Some of the corps members that served in the state however called for improvement of corps members’ welfare in the state.

“Some employers didn’t pay anything at all,” one of them said, adding that, “Some were paying N2, 000. There was no accommodation for some of us.”
