NYSC to Corps members: Respect Host Communities’ Traditions

Corps members

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has urged corps members not to disrespect the traditional practices of their host communities or meddle in local politics.

Its Anambra State Coordinator, Mrs. Blessing Iruma, gave the advice while addressing this year’s Batch ‘A’ Stream 2 orientation course in Awka, the state capital.

She said: “As soon as you report to your places of primary assignment, try to integrate yourselves into your host communities.

“In the process, appreciate their cultures and traditions but do not challenge their traditional practices nor meddle in their local politics.

As a group or individuals, strive to identify their felt needs and take steps to address them thereby leaving those communities better than you met them.”

Iruma urged the corps members to enrol in post-camp training, get certified, and articulate bankable proposals as major steps to greatness.

She added: “Endeavour to use social media to promote unity, peace and national development as well as the improvement of self.

Shun any tendency to use social media negatively under any guise.

“The country values you immensely and wants you to remain alive to contribute to the development of self and the nation.

Therefore, shun any unauthorised journey and night travels.

“These ventures are risky as embarking on such movements has often resulted in accidents, deaths, kidnappings and other negative consequences.
