NYSC urged to be part of skill acquisition scheme in Imo

Imo State Deputy Governor, Prince Eze Madumere, has charged the authorities of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme in the state to be part of the Skill Acquisition Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) and the Health Initiative for Rural Dwellers (HIRD) provided by the state government to improve the condition of living of the people and equip the corps members for future challenges.
Madumere gave the charge at the closing of  the orientation course for 2017 Batch A stream II corps members deployed to serve in Imo State at NYSC orientation camp, Eziama Obaire in Nkwerre LGA of the State.
The Deputy governor, who represented Gov. Rochas Okorocha, urged the youths to remain calm, disciplined and law abiding as government continues to create jobs and wealth opportunities for the youths.
He also stressed the need to invest in agriculture as a means to reducing the dependence in oil as a major revenue earner in Nigeria.
Pledging Imo government support and assistance for the scheme to actualize its objectives, he admonished the corps members to be agents of love and harmony in their host communities.
He also urged them to shun hate in whatever guise.
The Deputy Governor pointed out that Imo State is the only state in Nigeria that offers free education from primary to tertiary levels and advised the corps members to appreciate the enormous changes that the Rescue Mission Government has brought to the state as he encouraged them to contribute their quota towards improving upon the successes made so far.
Earlier in his remarks, the coordinator of the scheme in Imo State, Olugbodi James, said the orientation camp is designed to train and acquaint corps members with the paramilitary skills, entrepreneurial training and values, urging them to imbibe the motto of the scheme which is service and humility.
He thanked Governor Okorocha for his unwavering support, especially the provision of clean water for consumption, hygiene and sanitation in the camp.
