Director General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Major General Suleiman Kazaure has advised 2019 batch ‘A’ corps members currently in orientation camp to steer clear of illicit drug consumption and internet fraud.
Kazure made the charge on Sunday while addressing 2,074 corps members presently in the Kaduna orientation camp.
The DG noted with concern the high prevalence of vile acts among the youths urging them to shun actions capable of ruining their future.
He added that there was paucity of white collar jobs occasioned by influx of fresh graduates yearly advising the ‘corpers’ to embrace entrepreneurship.
His word, “White collar jobs are difficult to get. Over 300,000 corps members pass through the scheme every year out which only a few get employed. This is where innovation and creativity come in.
“This was why the scheme has SAED programme on ground for corps members to engage with instead of roaming the street after the service.
“You must respect the culture and traditions of your host communities. Avoid night crawling, dress responsibly and comport yourselves very well as ambassadors of Nigeria.”
