Oyo State Governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, has charged corps members in the state to leave outstanding legacies in their places of primary assignment.
He spoke at the orientation camp closing ceremony for the 2017 Batch ‘B’ (Stream 11) corps members deployed to Oyo State and those dislodged from Kwara and Ogun States respectively.
Ajimobi, who was represented at the ceremony by the Commissioner of Youth and Sports, Hon. Abayomi Oke said one of the primary objectives of the NYSC scheme is for corps members to better the lots of people and places where they are posted.
The governor told the gathering that the government has put in place machinery to effectively protect the lives and properties of the servicing corps members. He advised them not to misuse the privileges conferred on them by the constitution to engage in acts that threaten the unity of Nigeria.
Governor Ajimobi promised that corps members who distinguished themselves during the service year will be adequately rewarded.
Earlier in her welcome remarks, the State Coordinator, Mrs. Ifeoma Anidobi expressed appreciation to the government and people of the state for being a good host to the corps members.
Mrs. Ifeoma Anidobi specially thanked the Oyo State NYSC Governing Board for ensuring the smooth operations of the scheme in the state.
The State Coordinator implored the corps members to take advantage of the skills acquisition training they were exposed to in the camp to drive out poverty.
