    Banditry: NYSC DG visits Zamfara, assures corpers of safety

    The Director-General, National Youth Service Corps, Brig. Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim, on Friday paid a visit to the bandits-troubled Zamfara State, assuring corps members posted to the state that the agency and the Federal Government were committed to their safety and welfare.

    A statement on Friday by the NYSC Director of Press and Public Relations, Nike Adeyemi, said Ibrahim addressed the 2021 Batch ‘B’ Stream II corps members at the NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp in Zamfara State.

    Ibrahim commended them for their demonstration of patriotism by accepting their deployment to Zamfara State, despite the security challenges.

    The NYSC DG said, “The Federal Government appreciates your courage and readiness to contribute to national development. Rest assured that both the government and the NYSC care for you. We are in constant liaison with security agencies in our determined efforts to ensure that you and other corps members remain safe in any location you find yourselves.”

    Ibrahim, however, advised the corps members to be security-conscious at all times while also cautioning them against engaging in social vices.

    He warned them against unauthorised journeys, night travels and patronage of motor parks that are not recognised by the appropriate authorities.

    “If you are going to travel within the country, your coordinator must give approval and if you are travelling outside the country, it is only the Director-General that can give approval. Your employers cannot permit you to travel,” he said.

    He urged them to strive to perform excellently in all the four cardinal programmes of the NYSC, and add value to their host communities by undertaking projects on the platform of the NYSC Community Development Service.

    He added, “Use the NYSC as a platform to promote national unity, let us turn our diversity into opportunities because there is always strength in diversity.”
