Gov. Ahmadu Fintiri of Adamawa has assured corps members deployed to the state of their safety and said they should consider their deployment to the state as a blessing.
Fintiri gave the assurance Monday at the Damare Camp near Yola, at the swearing-in ceremony of 2019 Batch ‘C’ Stream 11 corps members deployed to the state.
Fintiri said Adamawa is now a peaceful state and would accord the corps members warm reception during the service year.
“Adamawa is at present one of the most peaceful states in the country.
“This is particularly evident in the serenity we enjoyed during the 2019 general elections in which corps members like you massively participated.
“To this end, I want you to consider your deployment to Adamawa as a blessing from God and therefore accept it in good faith,” Fintiri said.
He urged them to take the orientation programme seriously by participating actively in all camp activities which are full of opportunities and needed exposure to re-adjust their lives and build their confidence.
In his remarks, the State Chairman of NYSC Governing Board, Mallam Sanusi Faruk, lauded Adamawa Government for it commitment to supporting the scheme and urged the corps members to take maximum advantage of the training courses to be provided to them during the orientation.
In his speech, the Adamawa Coordinator of NYSC, Mallam Ibrahim Tukur, urged the corps members to demonstrate patriotic spirit throughout the orientation course and during the service year.
“I must quickly remind you that however that camp life is strictly regimented and carefully designed to inculcate in you discipline, hard work, team spirit and love for one another.
“You should aspire to the highest ideals of patriotism and selfless service to your fatherland,” Tukur said.
