NSUKKA – The Coordinator of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Enugu State, Mr Hilary Nasamu, has urged corps members to use the entrepreneurial knowledge they acquired in camp to be self-employed.
Speaking at the passing-out ceremony of 268 members of the 2013 Batch B from Nsukka, Igboetiti and Udenu local governments in Nsukka on Thursday, Nasamu said the skills acquisition and entrepreneurial training was to make them job creators rather than job seekers.
He said the introduction of the skills acquisition, entrepreneurial training and the war against poverty into the scheme was to provide the youth with the option of self-employment.
 “This is the time to use the knowledge acquired from the exposure to make the right decision for your future,’’ he said.
The Director of Community Development Service, Mr Shobo Adewumi, said the government decided to make the passing-out low-keyed because of the security challenges in the country.
“The low key nature of today’s passing out is the same throughout the federation, because of the security challenges in the country.
“You must remain focused, resolute and confident in your ability to earn a decent living from genuine and honest endeavours,” Adewumi said.
He said the state appreciated the contributions of the batch, especially in the area of education and health care delivery.
The director said 268 the corps members performed well as no one was to repeat the service year.
Some of the members expressed satisfaction with the people of the state for their hospitality. (NAN)
