The Director General of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier General YD Ahmed, has inaugurated Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development Centre in Delta state orientation camp located in in Issele-Uku.
Speaking at the inauguration during his visit Thursday, General Ahmed said the centre would serve as additional advantage and morale booster in the training of corps members in vocational skills.
In a press release signed by the director, Press and Public Relations, Eddy Megwa, and made available to Blueprint, the DG commended the NYSC Delta state coordinator, Mr. Alao Olusegun for his determination in completing the laudable one block of six-room project which was conceived by late Mrs Folake Ndubusi-Johnson, a staff of NYSC Delta state secretariat, who died in 2021.
General Ahmed commended the vision of the deceased staff who birthed the centre while he prayed for repose of her soul. Before the inauguration, the director general had advised the 2023 Batch ‘C’ Stream Two Corps Members to respect the constituted camp authorities and use the three weeks orientation period to establish long- lasting friendship.
He warned them to be security conscious and avoid adventures that may expose them to danger.
“Respect the culture and traditions of the people you are going to serve and add value to your communities.
Avoid the use of hard drugs, cybercrimes and other activities that can put you in danger,” the DG said.
