The Director-General of the National Youths Service Corps (NYSC), Brig-Gen Shaibu Ibrahim, has advised female corps members to respect their dignity by refraining from shameful acts.
Ibrahim made the call on Monday when he visited 2019 Batch B Stream 2 corps members at the NYSC Orientation Camp in Tsafe, Tsafe Local Government Area of Zamfara State.
“My call to you, the female corps members, you should respect yourselves and maintain your dignity.
“You should not allow men during the service year to lead you into activities that will bring shame to your families and the NYSC scheme,” he said.
He also advised the corps members in the state to shun all forms of criminality, especially cultisms, drug abuse and peddling, internet scam and armed robbery.
“As corps members, you should desist from unauthorised journeys to avoid being vulnerable to security challenges and accidents.
“Most of the reports of corps member’s deaths during the service year was as a result of auto crash.”
He, therefore, advised corps members to participate actively in camp activities, especially Skills Acquisation and Entrepreneurship Development training.
“You should work actively to access loans from financial institutions to establish small and medium enterprises at the end of the service year,” he advised.
