Oyetola To Corps Members: Join Hands With Govt. To Develop Osun



Governor Gboyega Oyetola of Osun state on Thursday, urged the newly-deployed corps members to join hands with his government to develop the state during their stay.

Oyetola stated this during the swearing-in of the Batch ‘A’ (Stream I) corps members deployed to the state for their mandatory one year youth service.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the corps members, numbering 2,300, took oath of allegiance and service to the nation.

NAN also reports that the corps members were admitted on oath by Justice Adedotun Grace, who represented the state Chief Judge, Justice Oyebola Adepele-Ojo, at the NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp in Ede.

The governor, while appealing to the corps members to shun all forms of crimes, urged them to be good ambassadors by imbibing the spirit of hard work, honesty and respect for constituted authorities.

Represented by Mr Wole Oyebamiji, the Secretary to the State Government, Oyetola urged them to use the one year mandatory service for self-development as well as humanitarian services.

The governor said the state government would create an enabling environment for the corps members, adding that their welfare and security would be of utmost priority to his administration.

In his remarks, Mr Ayodele Adegoke, the NYSC State Coordinator, said that the 2,300 corps members deployed to the state comprised of 1,100 males and 1,200 females, cutting across the six geo-political zones of the country.

Adegoke urged the prospective corps members to be guided by the core value of the scheme, which according to him, were patriotism, integrity, efficiency, commitment and hard work.

“Each phase of the service year has been carefully planned and put together to instill the right values and qualities needed for you to excel.

“I want you to be calm and serious during the three-week mandatory exercise to enable you integrate well into any part of the society where you may find yourself thereafter,” he said. (NAN)
