Corp members advised to be security conscious

National Youths Corps members have been advised to adhere to the security tips they have been exposed to during their orientation course in order to keep safe wherever they found themselves during and after their service year.

The Lagos State Coordinator, National Youths Service Corps, NYSC, Mr. Sunday Aroni gave the advice at the closing of Orientation Course for the 2019 Batch “B” stream two Corps members posted to Lagos state.

He said that like every other citizen of Nigeria, the federal government did not toy with the safety of Youths corps members who always serve the nation in areas where they were not usually familiar with.

He explained that apart from issueing a pamphlet on relevant security tips to every Corps member during the Orientation course, men of various security agencies were usually invited to enligthen corps members on how to keep safe especially in the face of current security challenges in the country.

The NYSC Lagos state Cordinator enjoined corps members not to go against the culture and tradition of their host community to avoid unhealthy confrontation between the Corps members and the host communities.

Mr. Aroni urged the Corps members not to engage in unneccessary travels that might expose them to danger.

He warned the corps members against flauting the rules and regulations guiding their service to avoid being sanctioned in line with the NYSC bylaws.

In a message to the event, the Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu appealed to various organisations in the state not to reject Coprs members posted to their organisations so that the Corps members could settle down to work on time.

He appealed to the Youth Corps members to be law abiding always and be good ambassadors of the NYSC.

Governor Sanwo-Olu urged them to come up with innovative ideas that would better their host communities and Lagos State at large.

The NYSC dance troupe added colour to the event.
