As the National Youth Service Corps NYSC Batch B Stream 1 members have been sworn into the scheme in their various called-up states, the Director-General of the scheme, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim has enjoined them not to join in preaching the gospel of the secession of Nigeria.
Shuaibu Ibrahim said this in the light of the tension which have over time risen in the nation with the calls for the Yoruba Nation and Biafra Republic as spearheaded by Sunday Igboho and Nnamdi Kanu respectively.Giving the charge today Monday at the temporary NYSC Orientation Camp, Amada, Gombe State during the swearing in ceremony of the Corps members, the DG urged them to shun acts capable of promoting disunity and division in the country. He rather, asked them to be ambassadors of peace and unity as the nation builders that they are.
“Always promote the unity of the country, let the spirit of NYSC lives in you. As nation builders; you must refrain from all forms of cyber crimes, drive your vision with passion, do not cut corners”, he said.He further urged the Corps members to respect the culture and values as well as contribute meaningfully to the development of their host communities, and stressed on the need for the Corps members to seek for permission before travelling in view of the spate of road accident and security challenges in the country.
Adding that corp members have recently been involved in auto-crash, Brig.-Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim said, “Recently, corps members have been involved in motor accident, therefore, it is mandatory to take permission before embarking on journey”.
