Brigadier General Yusuf Dogara Ahmed, the Director General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), has appealed to Senator Uba Sani, the Governor of Kaduna State, to provide suitable Orientation Camps for Corps members in the state.
He emphasized that the Camp, being the first point of contact for Corps members, leaves a lasting impression of the state.
The NYSC DG made this plea during the opening ceremony of the 2023 Batch ‘B’ Pre-Orientation Course Workshop held in Kaduna on Tuesday.
The workshop had the theme “Repositioning the NYSC Orientation Course in the Post-Golden Jubilee Era for Effective National Service.”
It could be recalled that the NYSC permanent camp along Kaduna Abuja Highway was shutdown about two years ago due to insecurity challenges and relocated to a temporary site at Government College within the state metropolis.
General Ahmed expressed his gratitude to the State Government, security agencies, traditional rulers, and other stakeholders for their immense support of the NYSC scheme in the state.
He also took the opportunity to urge other stakeholders to remain committed to the Scheme as they work towards transforming graduate youths for national development.
He highlighted that they are collaborating closely with key stakeholders to ensure the success of the 2023 Batch ‘B’ Orientation Course, as they have done in previous workshops.
He stressed that the forum aims to generate impactful resolutions and issue policy guidelines for the smooth execution of the exercise.
General Ahmed emphasized that the Pre-Orientation Course Workshop serves as a platform for NYSC officials and partner agencies to evaluate the conduct of past Orientation Courses and devise strategies for improved performance.
