Ibrahim, who was represented by the NYSC State Coordinator Abia, Jingi Denis, also enjoin the corps members to brace up for the tasks of the next phase of their service year having completed the orientation course.

He said, “This is important as the entire nation looks forward to your roles in advancing the unity and development of the country. I urge you to remain patriotic, hardworking and resilient as demonstrated during the Orientation exercise.

“As you get set to report to your Places of Primary Assignment, I wish to stress the need for you to be diligent in the performance of your duties. I also urge you to integrate into your host communities by learning their languages and cultures.

“Furthermore, you should devote time to identify the felt needs of the communities, and initiate personal and group Community Development Service projects that will uplift their living standards.”
