Bauchi Gov Tasks Corps Members On Community Dev’t

Bauchi State Governor Bala Mohammed has called on the 2024 Batch ‘B’ Stream 1 corps members deployed to the state to work for national transformation and development.

The governor made the appeal yesterday in his address at the swearing-in of the corps members for their three-week orientation course at the state NYSC Camp, Wailo.

He charged them to work towards achieving the NYSC’s national unity and development objectives.

Governor Mohammed, who was represented by his deputy, Rt. Hon. Mohammed Auwal Jatau said the state government will assist the corps members in every possible way to ensure the success of the scheme in the state and stressed the need for them to heed the nation’s call to serve with increased dedication and commitment.

“I offer my heartfelt congratulations on completing your academic pursuits successfully, which have enabled your participation in national service. The people of Bauchi State support and align with the goals and principles of the NYSC.

“You may recollect that the NYSC scheme was established to foster a strong, united and indivisible nation. The principles and initiatives of the scheme recognise the immense physical, psychological, mental and intellectual capabilities and inclinations of our youth, whose strategic disposition is crucial for nation-building.

“The future of our country rests in your hands. You have a significant role to play in shaping our collective destiny. Do not squander this unique opportunity, and do not neglect your responsibilities to the nation. As you will soon discover, our citizens are hospitable, amicable and compassionate. I encourage you to take advantage of this hospitable, friendly, and accommodating environment to gain a deeper understanding of the people of our nation.”

The governor said the orientation course marks the beginning of their journey towards greater heights and future accomplishments. It was designed to expose them to the specific challenges faced by their host communities so that they can help them find creative solutions.

Governor Mohammed, therefore, reassured that his administration will spare no effort in fortifying and empowering youth-oriented programmes by providing adequate resources and support to achieve the desired objectives.

For his part, the state commissioner for youth and sports development, Salees Gamawa, congratulated the corps members on completing their studies, which qualified them to participate in the national service.

Earlier, the NYSC coordinator in Bauchi State, Mrs Rifkatu Daniel, expressed gratitude to Governor Bala Mohammed for his administration’s support for the NYSC activities in the state.
