The Governor of Sokoto State Dr Ahmed Aliyu,  has tasked corps members to sustain the spirit of patriotism, hard work and resilience which they have imbibed during the orientation course to move the nation forward.

Aliyu gave the advise on Tuesday  at the closing ceremony of the 2023 Batch ‘B’ Stream I Orientation Course in Wamakko permanent orientation camp, Sokoto State.

The governor, represented by his deputy Eng. Muhammad Idris Gobir said they should strive to meet the expectations of Nigerians by contributing towards the progress and development of the country.

“My dear compatriots, as you begin the next phase of the service, I urge you to sustain the spirit of patriotism, hard work and resilience, which you imbibed during the Orientation Course.

“It is my ardent hope that you will strive to meet the expectations of Nigerians by contributing towards the progress and development of our dear country”, Aliyu stated.

Aliyu  further admonished them to avoid the use of social media for ethnic jingoism, rumour peddling and the promotion of hatred rather their activities online should be targeted at self-improvement as well as for the promotion of unity, peace and development of the country.

Advising them further, the governor said they must be wary of acts that can portray the scheme in a bad light, especially drug abuse and trafficking, cyber crime and advanced fee fraud.
