The Acting DG further admonished the corps members to embrace the Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) programme.
The Acting Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Mrs Christy Ifeyinwa Uba, has warned the 2022 Batch ‘C’ Stream 2 corps members against involving in any form of cybercrimes and other social vices that can endanger their lives.
She added that the corps members must avoid embarking on unauthorised travels during their service year.
Uba, who charged the corps members to use social media to further unite the country instead of spreading unfounded information, said, "Avoid the wrong use of Social Media. Always visit the NYSC Social Media platforms for up-to-date information. All services on camp are free."
The acting DG, who gave the warning on Tuesday during the swearing-in of the corps members, advised them to serve as good ambassadors of their institutions, families and NYSC.
According to a statement by the NYSC Director of Press and Public Relations, Dr Eddy Megwa, the acting DG in her address noted that discipline, loyalty, dedication, honesty and other good virtues should be the corps members’ watchword during their service year.
Uba, who earlier congratulated the corps members on the successful completion of their studies, urged them to participate actively and fully in all orientation camp activities.
She advised them to use the Orientation Course opportunity to make new friends and more importantly, promote the unity and integration of the country.
The Acting DG further admonished the corps members to embrace the Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) programme of the Scheme, which she explained was designed to empower corps members with skills that will enable them to become business owners after their compulsory one year national service.
