Represented by Sokoto State NYSC Coordinator, Alhaji Usman Yaro, the DG said: “I urge you to respect the culture and traditions of your host community. Remain peaceful and resilient as you add value to the community you’re posted to. I’m sure many of you will choose to remain here after your service.

“Also take your security seriously. Take time to read the instructions in your manual and abide by them accordingly. Your security is our concern, but no one can secure you more than yourself.”

He emphasized the need to develop skills and encourage an entrepreneurial mindset inside the Scheme, Ahmed urged corps members to seize the opportunity to become self-sufficient and become job and wealth creators after their service year.

“Skills acquisition is designed to make you independent, self reliance and productive. Federal government is out to ensure youths are supported and empowered so they can stand on their own.

“Thousands of your predecessors who maximize the opportunity are now independent. Many enjoyed several of such government support in collaboration with private organizations, including soft loans provided at no interest.”

He urged them to be enterprising and use social media only for the promotion of national unity and other positive purposes.

He thanked the Government of Sokoto State, Sultanate council for their unflinching support of the scheme.
