Barely few days into the passing out of camp for the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) batch ‘A’, the NYSC Director General, Brigadier General Johnson Bamidele Olawumi has advised corps members to exhibit high level discipline as they set for the mandatory one year national service.
Gen. Olawumi gave this advised weekend, during his official working visit to the 2014 Batch ‘A’ corps members who are currently undergoing their three weeks orientation course programme in Okada, Ovia North East Local Government Area of Edo State.
Gen. Olawumi also used the opportunity to hand down warnings to the corps members who will be participating in the forth coming 2015 general elections not to involve themselves in any electoral malpractice no matter the situation they may find themselves during the national exercise.
He however reminded them that their one year service is a sacrifice to their fatherland and they must be ready to serve diligently, not to tarnish the image of the Scheme, the trust and the confidence that government has in them as leaders of tomorrow.
According to him, corps members need not be partisan while on national service and they must not allow themselves to be used by any politician in the interest of their selfish motives.
Gen. Olawumi admonished them, “your conscience must not be bought over” pointing out that, “Money is not everything as you are expected to displayed high level standards and discipline to your states of posting and areas of primary assignment”, he said.
