“The NYSC Health Initiative for Rural Dwellers Programme, the campaign against HIV/AIDS; polio eradication and  social vices in the state are activities that are also worthy of praise. 

 He noted that their affinity to their host communities during their  service year would form the basis of lifelong brotherhood, friendship, national unity and integration, which is the core objective of the NYSC Scheme.

He further disclosed that his  administration places high premium on youth development. That is why he deliberately carved out the Ministry of Youth and Sports Development out of the erstwhile Ministry for Social Welfare and Youth Development specifically for youth empowerment and employment.

On his part the NYSC State coordinator Alhaji Muhammad Nakamba urged the outgoing corps members be good ambassadors of the scheme and continue  to maintain the good virtues of peace, tranquility and mutual co-existence among Nigerians wherever they find themselves irrespective of tribe, ethnic or religious inclination.

” My dear Corps Members, as you depart I advised you to be disciplined and desist from any act that would bring you shame. Be steadfast to the teachings and ideals of the NYSC Scheme and not lend yourselves to champions of political, religious or tribal differences at your detriment and that of your nation he said
