Osun Governor Adeleke urges Corps members to view NYSC as their call to service

Ademola Adeleke, the Governor of Osun State, has emphasized to the members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in the state that their deployment should be viewed as a call to service.

In a message to the youth corps members, Governor Adeleke urged them to uphold the national pledge and oath of allegiance and encouraged them to express their grievances through constitutionally accepted means.

Furthermore, he urged them to recognize their role as role models for the younger generation. The governor, represented by his Deputy, Kola Adewusi, delivered this message during the swearing-in and official opening of the 2023 Batch B Stream one orientation course at the NYSC permanent orientation camp in Ede on Friday.

He said, ”I want you to know that you are dear to the government and our nation That is why the government continues to fund the NYSC Scheme as a way of reaching out to you, showing you it cares and is keenly interested in your empowerment and well-being. I want you to justify the trust reposed in you by the nation and your family by being law abiding and remaining as good ambassadors of your institutions, family, geopolitical zone and the nation. 

“Furthermore, I implore you to embrace one another’s differences. Make friends and relate freely with one another cherishing and respecting your differences while diligently discovering your similarities. See and treat the person next to you as your brother and your sister and the people of the State as your family. Also, ensure that you abide by the rules and regulations of the Camp as this will help you to make the most of your Orientation experience. I assure you that my Government will continue to support the NYSC Scheme in the state in ensuring your welfare and safety during the service year. I want you to let go of all negative preconceptions which are capable of maring the fun of the service year. 

Dear Compatriots in service, I urge you to join us to make our economy bigger and stronger by embracing skills acquisition and entrepreneurship. Be creative and innovative as graduates. Do not only think of consuming but rather begin to think of what you can produce or offer as a solution to human needs and problems. Imbibe the mindset of an entrepreneur and tow the path of diligence, hardwork and industry, which is the key to lasting success and prosperity.” 

Adeleke further advised the corps members to adhere to all rules and regulations and act as law-abiding citizens. He also urged them to promote peaceful coexistence and avoid engaging in frivolous activities and excessive behavior commonly associated with modern youths.

The State Coordinator of NYSC in Osun, Agbor Ndoma Obim, stated during his address that as of midnight on Thursday, a total of 1,361 corps members had been registered, with 749 males and 612 females among them.

He also mentioned that the additional 550 corps members who were relocated from Lagos to the state had also been registered thus far.

The NYSC boss in Osun expressed gratitude to the state government for enhancing the facilities at the permanent orientation camp for NYSC.

Furthermore, he urged the corps members to uphold the importance of the scheme by dedicating themselves to hard work, patriotic service, and community development initiatives. 

I urge you to work towards distinguishing yourselves during the service year as the Scheme has a system of rewarding hardwork and diligence.”
