Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Mohammad Fadah, has reminded corps members that there are presently no white cola jobs out there except they find ways of acquiring skills and getting entrepreneurship development.
The NYSA boss, who was addressing the 2022 batch B, stream 1 corps members in the NYSC temporary orientation camp in Iyana-Ipaja, Lagos today, June 24, said that skills acquisition will prepare them to be self-reliant after the programme.
He advised the corps members to abide by the rules/regulations of the orientation camp, even as he charged them to acquire monetizable skills and take advantage of the scheme’s entrepreneurship programme.
“As good children, you have to adhere strictly to the camp rules/regulations by doing all the Dos and staying away completely from all the Don’ts as you are observing this orientation programme.
“Movement anyhow in and outside the camp is not encouraged, don’t do it, but if you must and have cause for such, take necessary permission from the camp.
“There are no ‘White collar’ jobs out there, that is the reason for the Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAID), and you identify the one you want to learn.
“Take it very seriously. It is additional knowledge so that you can have something to practice, take home and fall back on after the one-year mandatory service to the fatherland.
