The Kogi Coordinator of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Femi Osungbohun, has urged outgoing corps members to effectively utilise the acquired skills during the one year mandatory national service.

Osungbohun gave the advice during the Passing-Out-Parade (POP) ceremony for 2023 Batch ‘B’ Stream l Corps members on Thursday in Lokoja.

The POP marks the end of a year-long journey of serving the nation, which is a mandatory requirement for Nigerian graduates.

According to him, a total of 825 deserving corps members of 2023 Batch B Stream l, have successfully completed and met the necessary requirements for the one year national service to their fatherland.

Osungbohun urged the corps members to effectively utilised all the acquired skills under the NYSC Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Department (SAED), to be self-reliant and employers of labour.

“I am sure with the kind of positive impacts the NYSC has made on you during your service year, don’t just sit back and expect government to do everything for you.

“Opportunities abound everywhere with your education and the various skills you have acquired.

“The hour has come when the advantages of all the NYSC SAED programmes, should live with you, because there is no white collar job anywhere.

“The skills should be able to empower you to be self employed and be employers of labour,” he said.

Osungbohun stressed that the NYSC operatives were always very happy that yet again they had been able to tutor and mentored a very critical segment of the society for nation building.

He added: “The 825 corps members that are leaving service today, we are proud to say that individually and collectively they are going out into the society to make positive impacts”.

Three worthy corps members who distinguished themselves in their various assignments during their service year, received Letters of Commendation from NYSC.

The corps members were: Serah Ogundeji – Oyo; Dr Adeniyi Ayomide – Ondo; and Hamza Babatunde from Ogun State. They all expressed their gratitude to NYSC for the opportunity to serve the nation in that capacity.
