The Yobe State Governor, Ibrahim Geidam has commended National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members deployed to Yobe State for accepting their deployment to the state considering security challenges bedeviling the state.
The Governor who was represented by the chairman NYSC governing board
in Yobe state, Zanna Zakariya gave the commendation at the
opening ceremony of orientation course of corps members deployed to the state for 2015 batch B service year held at the adult and non formal education Institute, Kangere in Bauchi State.
He said “I am compelled to commend you for accepting your deployment
in the State in good faith at this time that undesirable elements are
working hard to sabotage the efforts of government and security
He  reiterated his commitment to maintain the good working
relationship with the NYSC adding that his Administration will come up
with a blue print on how to review the welfare packages of corps
members’ serving in the state.
Geidam also commended the initiative of the DG of NYSC
Brig- General Jonhson Olawumi for reinforcing skills acquisition and
entrepreneurial development training programme at the orientation
According to him, the Programme will  empower them to become self reliant and employers of labour after the service year.
He thereby enjoined them to key into the skills
training as they may not have such an opportunity free of charge after
the orientation course.
In his remarks, the state coordinator of NYSC, Abubakar Mohammed
said  they have registered a total of 2122 Corps members and called
on members of the camp community to be security conscious at all times and in all places.
He commended governor Geidam for his uncompromising stand on security
and welfare of corps members in the state.

He urged the corps members to forge lasting relationships with other
members that will strengthen the unity of the country as their
predecessors have done.

Abubakar Mohammed enjoined them to be inquisitive of their different
backgrounds so as to get first hand information about other Nigerians
and to shun negative perception  they previously had of them saying
that is the essence of the service year.
