The Director General of the National Youth Service Corps, Brig.-Gen. M.K. Fadah has counseled the 2022 Batch B, Stream 1 Corps members, to maintain high level of discipline during their one-year mandatory National Service.

General Fadah, in an address, delivered by the NYSC State Coordinator of Kwara State, Mrs Francisca Olaleye, during the Swearing–in ceremony of the newly deployed Corps members to the state, cautioned the Corps to be law abiding citizens during and after their service year.

He urged them to distance themselves from cultism, drug abuse, fraud and other social vices.

In his words, “…avoid using social media for spreading fake news, fuelling hatred and other negative purposes and instead deploy the same for the promotion of national unity and development.”

In Kwara state, a total number of 1,520 Corps members, who have been undergoing orientation course, took oath of allegiance, as they commenced their national service today, under the auspices of the National Youth Service Corps.

His Lordship, the Honourable Chief Judge of Kwara state, was represented by Justice Suleiman Akanbi, administered the oath allegiance to the newly inducted Corps members.

In her remarks, shortly after the Swearing in ceremony, the NYSC State Coordinator, Kwara state, Mrs Francisca Olaleye, assured the new Corps members of adequate security and welfare services throughout the time they will be spending in Kwara state. She described the state as very peaceful and its people are very warm and friendly to Corps members.
