The Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps, Brig.Gen. Suleiman Kazaure, has charged corps members across the country to be security conscious and avoid unnecessary travels and reckless movements during their service year.
He stated that whenever it was important to travel, they should obtain clearance from the appropriate authorities.
Kazaure also advised them to always move in groups within the locality of their areas of primary assignments.
The NYSC DG spoke on Saturday after inspecting facilities at the Imo State NYSC orientation camp at Eziama Obaire, Nkwerre Council Area of Imo State.
Kazaure, who is the 17th DG of the NYSC established in 1973, also cautioned the corps members against indecent dressing and indulgence in night parties. He urged them to respect the traditions of their host communities.
He said, “I know what it means to be a corps member because I was one of you 30 years ago in Jalingo where I served. I urge you to be patriotic, diligent and committed in the service of your father land.”
He also congratulated the corps members on the successful completion of their academic programmes which he said qualified them for participation in the scheme.
He further advised them to avoid conduct that could bring shame to the nation and their families.
