The Director General National Youth Service Corps, (NYSC), Brigadier General, Yushau Dogara Ahmed has advised Corps Members to respect cultures, norms and traditions of their host communities where they will be posted.

The NYSC DG gave the advice on Friday, during his official visit to the Corps Members, at the Umunna Bende NYSC Abia Permanent Orientation Camp, according to a release made available to our correspondent by Mr. Omaka Nnachi (anipr) Public Relations Officer NYSC Abia on behalf of State Coordinator, Mrs Ufuoma Dick-Iruenabere.

General Dogara, who addressed the Corps Members during the unscheduled visit, commended them for the report of good conduct and discipline he received and advised them to continue to be discipline throughout the service year and beyond.

On safety and security of the corps members, the DG urged them to be security conscious, avoiding night travels, and to follow at all times the security tips they have received during their security lectures in camp, citing cautionary tales of corps members who had put themselves in harms way due to negligence  of such security lectures.

The DG revealed that by actively participating in the in-camp Skills Acquisition and Entreprenuership Development, SAED  programme, the Corps Members have the capacity for receiving interest-free loans and grants from various NYSC partnering financial institutions such as Central Bank of Nigeria, Bank of Industry,  Kudimata, Access Bank, Wema bank and others.
