Buni to corps members: Consider your deployment as home coming 


Yobe state governor, Mai Mala Buni, has enjoined the 1115 corps members deployed to Yobe state to consider their deployment as home-coming.

Buni made the statement Tuesday during an induction and swearing in ceremony of the 2023 Batch ‘C’ Stream 1 corps members deployed to Yobe state at the Dazigau NYSC permanent orientation camp in Nangere local government area of the state.

Represented by his deputy, Alhaji Idi Barde Gubana, Buni who welcomed the corps members to the state, also charged the corps members to see the NYSC exercise as a clarion call for them to contribute their quota towards the development and advancement of a greater and better Nigeria.

“I know the three (3) weeks period of the orientation exercise will demand of you; the strength, discipline, tolerance and some level of sacrifice. But be rest assured that all of these will individually and collectively form the foundation upon which your tomorrow will be built.

“Therefore, I will like to draw your attention on the need for you to take the orientation programme seriously,” he said.

Buni reiterated the commitment of his government to accord topmost priority to the welfare and security of the corps members in any part of the state.

“I have directed all security agencies and community leaders not to rest on their oars in ensuring a conducive environment is created for all to thrive”, Governor Buni stated.

Earlier in her welcome address, Yobe state NYSC coordinator, Mrs Hafsat Yarima commended the 1115 deployed NYSC corps members for answering the call to serve their fatherland in Yobe state. 

She congratulated them for the successful completion of their studies from the various institutions of higher learning, which qualified them for mobilisation into the NYSC scheme.

“The orientation course is the pivot upon which other programmes of the Service year rests on. To this extent, corps members will be exposed to programmes and activities that will give them a better understanding of the objectives of the NYSC Scheme as well as the environment, language and the culture of their host community,’ he said.
