The Director General of the National Youth Service Corps, Brigadier General Sulaiman Kazaure has warned corps members against embarking on unnecessary travels and night pleasures due to safety and security risks.
Kazaure also encouraged corps members to respect cultures and traditions of host communities and to initiate projects and programmes that will promote such communities.
The NYSC boss gave the charge during a visit to the Rivers State Orientation Camp in Tai Local Government Area where he addressed members of the 2016 Batch B Stream Two.
He urged the corps members to pay adequate attention to skill acquisition training in the camp, which he said would help them overcome the challenges of searching for job after their service year.
“I congratulate you on your call-up to the NYSC Orientation camp. I want to crave your indulgence to be good citizens of Nigeria, to be good examples to your younger ones.
“You need to understand the terrain you have found yourselves and be very cautious of how you move.
“As Youth Corps members, you are meant be of good conduct. Stop making unnecessary trips and avoid going to night clubs,” he said.
On his part, the Rivers State Coordinator of NYSC, Omotayo Adewoye commended the government for providing enabling environment and good welfare for corps members.
