The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Director General, Brigadier General Yusha’u Dogara Ahmed, has urged Corps Members to pursue vocational training under the Scheme’s Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) programme in order to battle unemployment in Nigeria.
Ahmed stressed the need of skill development as the only remedy for unemployment, according to a statement issued on Monday by Eddy Megwa, the NYSC Director of Press and Public Relations.
He said this while addressing Corps Members at the NYSC Borno State Orientation Camp and the Katsina State Orientation Camp.
The NYSC DG also emphasised the value of in-camp training for all Corps Members, which is meant to introduce them to entrepreneurship during their three-week Orientation session.
However, Ahmed urged Corps Members to actively participate in camp activities and utilize the four cardinal programs of the Scheme (Orientation Course, Primary Assignment, Community Development Service, and Winding-Up/Passing-Out) to build relationships and make a positive impact on their host communities.
