The Ondo State NYSC Coordinator, Mrs. Victoria Nnenna Ani has said that the future of Nigeria is promising contrary to the beliefs that the country can’t progress again.
She made the statement while monitoring the Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) at the training of the 2021 Batch ‘C’ (Stream II) corps members at the Permanent Orientation Camp, Ikare-Akoko.
Giving reason to support her opinion, She said “Let it be known in all the nooks and crannies of this country and even beyond our shores that the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) should be strengthened and its coast enlarged to accommodate more skill sets than we presently have because nothing can stop the youths from possessing their possessions.”
“No one can develop our economy or our great country for us. The economies of the world we are all talking about today started somewhere and they did not neglect or abandon their youths. NYSC will continue to bridge the gap and provide necessary training and logistics till we get there,” she said.
The State NYSC Coordinator charged parents and guardians to encourage their children to key into the programme and learn one or two skills and vocations that will make them comfortable and independent during the service year and beyond.
“We shall continue to seek the support of, and collaborate with credible agencies and institutions to provide machinery and enhanced training for the graduate youths who are determined to be job and wealth creators, and corpreneurs that will become the next Mike Adenugas (Globacom), Aliko Dangotes (Dangote Cement), Femi Otedolas (Forte Oil) and Innocent Chukwumas (Innoson Motors),” she concluded.
