DG charges Corps Members to embrace vocational skills

The Director General, National Youth Service Corps has advised Corps Members to acquire vocational skills through the Scheme’s Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) Programme.
He said the in-camp training for all Corps Members was designed to expose them to entrepreneurship during their three weeks Orientation period, while the post-camp training period would help them to fully perfect their skills towards self employment.

He said the only antidote to unemployment was skill acquisition, as he advised the Corps Members to, “learn from SAED, take advantage of SAED and develop your potentials through it in order to be financially independent and become employers of labour”.
General Ahmed also warned the Corps Members that it is an offense to violate the NYSC dress code.
“The era of wrong dressing is gone.You must always dress well, don’t dress anyhow because every wrong dressing attract sanctions and if you are wrongly dressed you would not be allowed to enter our offices”.
He urged them to participate actively in all camp activities and use the four cardinal programmes of the Scheme, namely; Orientation Course, Primary Assignment, Community Development Service and Winding-Up/Passing-Out to create friendships and avenues to impact their host communities.
