Remember that God rewards decency and hard work. NYSC as scheme, we will stop at nothing to recognize and celebrate hardwork and acomplishments, be it academic, entrepreneurial and innovativeness.
“I am aware of the usual fear of unemployment that grips some unprepared ones but the scheme has prepared you with skills and funding options for post service challenges.
“Endeavour to remain focused and relevant at all times.
“I therefore charge you to step into the outside world with confidence and the Almighty God will definitely bless the work of your hands if you are diligent.”
On behalf of the Director-General of NYSC, Major General Shaibu Ibrahim, the governor of Anambra State, Prof. Chukwuma Charles Soludo and the people of Anambra State, I want to say a big thank you to you for upholding one of the major policies of the scheme by leaving your footprints in the sands of time here in our dear state.
