YOLA — Governor Ahmadu Fintiri of Adamawa State on Tuesday urged National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members posted to the state to be serious with the Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) programme while in the camp.
Fintiri while swearing-in 1,200 corps (646 male and 554 female) for 2021 ‘B’ Stream II orientation course at the permanent NYSC orientation camp Damare, in Girei local government area.
Represented by the Commissioner, Ministry of Youth and Sports, Aloysius Babadoke, the Governor promised to continue improving the camp facilities to make it conducive, secure, and convenient for successful orientation.
“Be serious and actively participate in all the camp programmes and activities. Of particular importance here is the SAED programme.”
“I strongly enjoin you all to key into this laudable programme that has lifted millions of your predecessors out of poverty and made them not only self-reliant but job creators.”
Earlier in his address, the state NYSC Coordinator, Malam Ibrahim Tukur, charged the corps members to understand that the SAED programme was meant to prepare corps members for self-employment and wealth creation.
Tukur charged them to avail themselves of the opportunity, and be self-employed after the service instead of joining the ranks of unemployed graduates scouting for white-collar jobs.
As part of its contribution to saving the environment, the NYSC flagged off a planting campaign in the camp.
