NYSC DG urge Corp Members to Marry themselves

The Director General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier General Suleiman Kazaure has urged corps members from different tribes to inter-marry.

He said it was as an avenue of boosting national integration.

General Kazaure made this remark when he visited the 2016 Batch A (Stream II) corps members undergoing their orientation programme.

He noted that the essence of the scheme was to ensure national integration, which would bring the desired unity in the country.

“I wish to see you intermarry within the orientation period to enhance national integration, as this would be achieved through adequate bonding in the camp.
“The Ramadan did not stop us from coming to the camp as I received lots of text messages inquiring about the possibility of organizing the camp within the period.”
He noted that he insisted that the orientation programme would be organized and that by God’s grace it went on and the Corps members would soon leave the camp.
“Corps members would not be posted to Ishiellu Local Government Area where the Ezza–Ezillo communal war took place until we get assurances of adequate security in the area.
“You should also pay special attention to skill acquisition while in the camp and the entire service year, to enable you be self reliant and not rely on white collar jobs”, he added.
The Ebonyi State Coordinator of the Scheme, Mrs Gladys Mbachi, told the DG that 1, 932 Corps members were undergoing the programme, with 1, 346 males and 586 females.
“The corps members have been behaving well since they arrived in the camp, though we presently have some health challenges”, she noted, stressing that one of the corps members had mental problem while three others had asthmatic cases, but that all of them had been referred to the hospital for adequate medical attention.
