Mrs Florence Yaakugh, the Taraba Coordinator, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) on Monday appealed to the Taraba Government and other stakeholders to prioritize the security and welfare of corps members in the state.
Yaakugh made the appeal at the closing ceremony of the 2019 Batch C stream 1 orientation course at the NYSC camp in Sibre, near Jalingo.
The coordinator commended security agents, camp officials, members of the Red Cross, medical personnels, the media among others for making the orientation course a success.
She told the corps members to make maximum use of the skills acquired on the camp in their service to the nation.
“I believe that all of you who came in here three weeks ago are not the same today, you are the same physically but you have certainly changed mentally and psychologically due to the training you have received,” she said.
In his comments, Gov Darius Ishaku of Taraba restated his directive to the chairmen of the 16Llocal Government Councils to ensure the security of corps members posted to their areas.
Represented by Mr Peter Toro, The permanent Secretary, Taraba Ministry of Youth and Sports Development, Ishaku congratulated all the corps members for a successful orientation course.
