Skills acquisition designed to make corps members self-reliant – NYSC DG

The National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, has said the scheme’s Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development, SAED, programme, was designed to make corps members self-reliant rather than seekers of white-collar jobs.

The Director-General of NYSC, Brig.-Gen. Yushau Ahmed, made this statement on Wednesday while addressing the 2024 batch “A” stream II corps members and camp officials at the NYSC temporary orientation camp in Doi-Du in Plateau State.

Ahmed urged the corps members to actively participate in the Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development, SAED, training, during their service year to enable them learn a skill which would in turn make them self-reliant and employers of labour rather than job seekers after their service year.

The DG said the scheme had partnered with banks and notable foundations on interest-free loans and grants for corps members with marketable skills and innovative ideas.

He cautioned the corps members against embarking on unnecessary journeys that could expose them to various risks.

Ahmed advised corps members to desist from requesting unnecessary redeployment to other states, which could impede them of a smooth service year.
