‘Utilize business skills acquired’- NYSC Oyo Coordinator, Ogbuegebe

The 2021 batch A, Stream 2 corps members in Oyo state, have been told to harness the financial opportunity created by National Youth Service Corps to kick start various business skills acquired during their mandatory one year service.

The Oyo state coordinator, National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, Mrs Grace Ogbuoegebe stated this during the passing out parade ceremony held at the Lekan Salami stadium.

Mrs Ogbuoegebe explained that NYSC had collaborated with some financial institutions such as the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, banks of Industry and of agriculture in a bid to ensure that corps members have unhindered access to loans.

Mrs Ogbuoegebe who said entrepreneurship and development skills acquired by corps members were enough for them to stand on their own said diligence and humility were strongly needed by the corps members to remain relevant in the current global market conditions.

In his address, the Oyo state governor, Governor Seyi Makinde represented by the commissioner of youth and sports development, Mr Seun Fakorede said since government alone could not provide the white-collar job to meet the job demands of Nigeria’s young graduates, it has become imperative for the corps members to make good use of the SAED Programme and eschew all forms of evil practices.

While advising the corps members to remain good ambassadors of the scheme, Governor Makinde said the outgoing corps members had immensely contributed to the development of their host communities through the implementation of community development projects.

Four thousand, seven hundred and fifty-four corps members were passed out in the 2021 batch A stream two.
