Brig. Gen. Yusha'u Dogara Ahmed, the Director General of National Youth Service Corp, has advised the 2023 Batch B Stream I Corps members against seeking redeployment after the orientation exercise. He urged them to embrace challenges and strive for a better future wherever they may find themselves. This article explores the DG's advice and emphasizes the importance of self-reliance and determination in achieving career goals.

KATSINA - The 2023 Batch B Stream I Corps members have been admonished against seeking redeployment after the orientation exercise, but as a challenge to strive for a better future wherever they may find themselves.

Brig. Gen. Yusha'u Dogara Ahmed, the Director General of National Youth Service Corp gave the advice while addressing Corps members of the 2023 Batch B Stream I at the NYSC Permanent orientation camp along Mani road in Katsina on Sunday.

Ahmed said rather than doing so, it will be better to take the bull by the horn, take a decision to make it big here in Katsina.

"Don't rely on any white collar job as they are not readily available, learn from the skills acquired at the camp through the SAED programme to become self-reliant after the service year".

The NYSC boss recalled his personal ordeal while going for service, himself and his daddy had gone to the service headquarters to seek for redeployment, but was challenged by an official and today I have achieved my dream target and become a soldier.

He, therefore, advised them to accept their posting to the state in good faith and get prepared to face the challenges ahead and ready to achieve their dreams.

Similarly, Brig Gen Ahmed has strongly warned the Corps members against embarking on illegal journeys that could result in their loss, urging them to always seek the permission of the authority for proper documentation.

He further enjoined them to desist from drug abuse, cultism, misuse of social media and other social vices, saying anyone found wanting will have himself or herself to blame.

Hajiya Aisha Muhammad, the state NYSC Coordinator, earlier told the DG that, 1,139 corps members comprising 551 males and 578 females are presently undergoing the two-week orientation course in the camp.

Aisha, while assuring that, all camp activities would not be compromised, said the Corps members have exhibited a sense of discipline and responsibility in the camp.

Strive for a Better Future

The National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) has always been a symbol of unity and self-development for Nigerian graduates. Every year, fresh graduates from different universities and institutions come together to participate in the NYSC program, serving their country and gaining valuable life experiences. The Director General of NYSC, Brig. Gen. Yusha'u Dogara Ahmed, recently addressed the 2023 Batch B Stream I Corps members in Katsina, urging them not to seek redeployment after the orientation exercise.

Ahmed emphasized the importance of embracing challenges and striving for a better future wherever they may find themselves. He advised the Corps members to take a decision to make it big in Katsina, rather than relying on white-collar jobs that are not readily available. He encouraged them to learn from the skills acquired during the orientation camp, especially through the Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) program, to become self-reliant after their service year.

The NYSC boss shared his personal experience, recalling how he and his father had sought redeployment when he was going for service. However, they were challenged by an official. Today, Brig. Gen. Dogara Ahmed has achieved his dream target and become a soldier. He used his story as inspiration for the Corps members, urging them to accept their postings in good faith and be prepared to face the challenges ahead in order to achieve their dreams.

Importance of Self-Reliance and Determination

Brig Gen. Ahmed also warned the Corps members against embarking on illegal journeys without proper documentation, emphasizing the need to seek permission from the authority. He further advised them to avoid social vices such as drug abuse, cultism, and misuse of social media.

Hajiya Aisha Muhammad, the state NYSC Coordinator, commended the Corps members for exhibiting discipline and responsibility during the orientation camp. She assured that all camp activities would not be compromised, ensuring a conducive environment for the Corps members to learn and grow.

The DG's advice highlights the importance of self-reliance and determination in achieving career goals. Graduates often face challenges in securing immediate employment, and seeking redeployment may not always be the best solution. By taking advantage of the skills acquired during the NYSC program, Corps members can explore entrepreneurial opportunities and make meaningful contributions to society.

The SAED program, which focuses on training Corps members in various vocational skills, equips them with valuable knowledge that can be turned into thriving businesses. By embracing these skills and adopting a proactive mindset, Corps members have the potential to build successful ventures and create employment opportunities for themselves and others.

Moreover, the NYSC program provides a unique opportunity for graduates to immerse themselves in different communities and cultures. By embracing their assigned state and actively participating in community development projects, Corps members gain valuable insights, broaden their perspectives, and develop strong interpersonal skills.

Conclusion

The advice given by Brig. Gen. Yusha'u Dogara Ahmed serves as a reminder to the 2023 Batch B Stream I Corps members that challenges should be embraced, and a better future can be achieved through self-reliance and determination. By making the most of the skills acquired during the orientation camp and leveraging entrepreneurial opportunities, Corps members have the potential to not only achieve personal success but also contribute to the growth and development of Nigeria.

As they embark on their service year, it is important for Corps members to approach their assignments with a positive mindset and a willingness to learn and adapt. Through their experiences, they can become agents of positive change and leaders in their respective fields. The NYSC program remains a platform for personal growth, professional development, and nation-building.

Let us encourage the 2023 Batch B Stream I Corps members to face the challenges ahead with resilience and determination, knowing that their efforts and contributions will shape a better future for themselves and Nigeria as a whole.
