NYSC Scheme Is A Unifying Factor, Says Oburoh

The Permanent Secretary, Directorate of Government House and Protocol, Mr. Benson Oburoh, have said that the National
Youth Service Corp (NYSC) has remained a unifying platform for our youths in the country.
Mr. Oburoh, who stated this on Friday in Asaba during a send forth party organised by the Directorate for the Batch A corps members, explained that the NYSC scheme had created the opportunity for individuals from across the country to experience and appreciate the diverse cultures in Nigeria especially
given our present political climate.
“The NYSC scheme is one of the best initiatives that have happened in the country, it is a scheme that is unifying us at this time when there is political differences” he stated. While commending the outgoing corps members for their exemplary service to the Directorate, the Permanent Secretary charged them to be self reliant and put their entrepreneurial skills learnt throughout their stay in the state into use rather than wait for white collar jobs. Emphasizing further he continued “The rate of unemployment in the country is high so I advise you to take up the challenge
of creating job opportunities for yourselves rather than sitting idle and waiting for white collar jobs”. He urged them to be ambassadors
of Delta State and portray the positive aspects of the state where ever they found themselves in the country. Speaking briefly the Chief Protocol Officer, Mr. Kingsley Olumukoro, commended the outgoing corps members for their service to the Directorate and advised them to be resourceful and focused in their future endeavours.
In a brief response, an outgoing corps member, Mr. Izuagba Tochukwu, who spoke on behalf of his colleagues, expressed deep appreciation
for the warm reception accorded them in the Directorate.
Highpoint of the ceremony was the presentation of souvenirs to the eight outgoing corps members by the Directorate.
