Leave indelible marks in communities, Sule charges 2,173 corps members

Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa state has charged 2,173 corps members deployed to the state for national service to leave indelible marks in host communities.

Sule gave the charge Tuesday during the swearing- in ceremony of the 2024 Batch ‘A’ stream II set orientation course at the Magaji Dan-Yamusa NYSC permanent orientation camp in Keffi local government area.

Governor Sule was represented by the Commissioner for Youths and Sports Development, Mr. Ja’afaru Ango.

He congratulated the corps members on the successful completion of their academic pursuits which qualified them for national service.

He charged them to reflect on the weight of the responsibilities that lies on corps members and leave indelible marks on the lives of the people they will serve in communities they will be posted to.

“Your service transcends geographical boundaries. It is a bridge that connects diverse communities, fostering understanding and collaboration. 

“Therefore, your efforts both big and small will leave indelible marks on the lives of those you serve. Take this chance to learn, lead and leave your mark,” he said.

He also urged them to pay attention to the contents of the three weeks orientation course and by-laws of the scheme as they serve as guiding principles throughout the service year.

Sule assured the corps members of the state government’s statutory responsibility to their welfare, security and general wellbeing.

The governor also commended the NYSC management, stakeholders and collaborating agencies for their dedication to service and abiding faith in the core objectives of the scheme.

In his remarks earlier, Abdullahi Jikamshi, the NYSC coordinator in the state, lauded the attitude of the NYSC members since the commencement of the orientation course, especially their response to training.

“They have exhibited a remarkable wave of enthusiasm, sturdiness and affinity, creating an atmosphere of unity and purpose that bodes well for the success of the orientation course,” he said.

He then urged the 2,173 corps members to adhere to camp rules, respect constituted authority and actively participate in all activities.
