Akwa Ibom State Governor, Udom Emmanuel, has called on National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, members and other Nigerian youths to remain patriotic, especially in this period some sections were clamouring for restructuring.
The governor made the call while he declared open the NYSC Pre-Mobilisation Workshop for 2017 Batch “B” Corps members in Uyo.
The governor, who was represented by his deputy, Moses Ekpo, said that NYSC had played tremendous role in the evolution of the country.
He said that the scheme was established to restore the robust belief in one united Nigeria, which he said was fatally shattered by the 36-month civil war.
Earlier in his address of welcome, the Director-General of NYSC, Brig.-General Suleiman Kazaure, said that the scheme would continue to provide platform to aggregate and accommodate suggestions for better outcome.
Kazaure said that the workshop was usually held at the commencement of every new mobilisation cycle to introduce to stakeholders, new measures and guidelines put in place for hitch-free mobilisation.
