Corps members decry high cost of accommodation in Orientation camps

National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Members have been advised to be patriotic and committed during their national service.

They have also been admonished to “make positive impact” in their places of primary assignments.

Similarly, the NYSC management was advised to look into the increasing cost of living in orientation camps as well as the relationship between corps members and military instructors on camps.

A Corps Member, Dauda Luka serving in FRCN Headquarters, gave the advice during the launch of his book: “NYSC SCHEME, THE DESTINY HELPER”, in Abuja.

The Book centres on a love story between two corps members, a rich lady, who disguised herself and a hardworking poor corps member.

The indigent corps member proved to be not only hardworking but patriotic and committed during his national service.

The author, Dauda Luka, explained that the aim of the book was to motivate serving and prospective corps members to give their best, especially in their places of primary assignment.

The reviewer of the book, Yusuf Adawa, described it as a masterpiece which portrays friendship and unity as promoted by the NYSC.

The Director, Marketing, FRCN, and father of the day, Mike Tokula, said Mr Luka was committed and dedicated to his duties, describing him as a goal-getter.

Other speakers at the event stressed the need for continuous encouragement of young people in their chosen skills to enable them contribute meaningfully to nation building.
