Major General Shuaibu Ibrahim, Director General of the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC has charged the over 2,000 corps members assigned to Akwa Ibom State to maintain a high degree of discipline throughout their service year.

Represented by the Akwa Ibom State Coordinator, Mrs Chinyere Ekwe, the DG urged the corps members to demonstrate high level of discipline, adding that the regimented nature of the camp was intended to instil discipline and build resilience.

“I implore you to sustain the high level of discipline and enthusiasm you have demonstrated so far, especially by remaining compliant with the camp rules and regulations. You must continue to distance yourselves from cultism, drug abuse and other social vices.

“I also urge you to avoid using the social media for spreading fake news, fuelling of hatred and other negative purposes, and instead deploy same for the promotion of national unity and development.

“You are strongly advised to be security conscious at all times, and to report any suspicious characters or activities around you to the appropriate authorities,” Ibrahim said.

He urged the corps members to avail themselves of the opportunities for self-employment offered through the Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development Programme during the orientation exercise.

While enjoining the corps members to avail themselves of this once-in-a-life-time opportunity by participating actively in all camp activities, the DG commended the House of Representatives for the progress made so far in the legislative processes on the Bill for the establishment of the NYSC Trust Fund.

He added that the Bill when passed into law would boost the skills and entrepreneurship development programme aimed at empowering corps members for self-employment and wealth creation.

Highpoint of the event was the administration of oath of allegiance on the corps members by the Chief Judge of Akwa Ibom State, Justice Ekaette Obot, who was represented by Justice Ntong Ntong.
