The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Batch A corps members in Taraba State have been called upon to make judicious use of the skills acquired during their three weeks orientation camp to become job creators.
Mrs Florence Yaakugh, the NYSC state Coordinator made the call at the closing ceremony of the 2019 batch A orientation camp on Tuesday in Jalingo.
Yaakugh also charged the corps members to go their areas of primary assignments with the zeal and dedication they exhibited while in the camp for greater community service.
“I wish to emphatically say your massive participation in the skills acquisition and entrepreneurship development was simply overwhelming.
“The training undertaken in agriculture, culture and tourism, cosmetology, ICT, food processing and preservation, fashion designing, film and photography, automobile, electrical installation, landscaping and beautification can make you job creators,” She said.
Yaakugh thanked God for sparing the lives of the 33 corps members in the camp that were hospitalized after the rainstorm that hit the camp on Saturday, saying almost all of them had been discharged.
She commended the Taraba Government for its continuous support to enhance the effectiveness of the service in the state.
Gov Darius Ishaku of Taraba assured the corps members of adequate security and welfare during their service year in the state.
Represented by Rev Gambo Ndafor, the State Commissioner for Youths, Sports and Social Development, Ishaku urges corps members to see Taraba as home away from home.
The 1,805 corps members ended the orientation in a colourful ceremony on Tuesday.
