By Maryam Abeeb, Abuja

Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has praised the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) for its roles in the success of the general elections.
Ambode said this at the Swearing-In of 2019 Batch A corps members at the NYSC Orientation Camp in Lagos where he was represented by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Special Duties and Inter-Governmental Relations, Dr Yusuf Jimoh.
“May I on this note specially commend the National Youth Service Corps for its invaluable role and contributions to the just concluded elections.
“The success of the 2019 elections has further proven that the scheme is indeed an enduring legacy of its founding fathers.
Our political trajectory becomes more definite with the NYSC as an instrument for sustaining our democracy,” he said.
Lagos State NYSC Coordinator, Prince Mohammed Momoh, said a total of 2,658 corps members (954 male and 1,614 females) took the oath of allegiance administered by the Chief Justice of Lagos, Justice Opeyemi Oke, represented by Justice Olabisi Akinlade of the Lagos High Court at the ceremony.
He urged them to take the programmes of the three week orientation camp seriously, especially the entrepreneurship trainig programme aimed at preparing them for self- employment.
“The Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) programme has been specially designed to salvage the deepening threat of unemployment in our country.
“I therefore encourage you to go the extra mile to participate in the programme in order to derive the maximum benefits and position yourself as an entrepreneur ready to take the many business opportunities out there. Remember the race for excellence has no finished line,” he said.
