NYSC State Coordinator charges members on perseverance
Meanwhile, the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) State Coordinator in Lagos, Mrs Yetunde Baderinwa, has urged the orientation course members to persevere and approach challenges.
Baderinwa gave the advice on Tuesday while addressing corps members of the Orientation Broadcasting Service (OBS) in the 2023 Batch B Stream II orientation camp, Iyana-Ipaja, Lagos.
According to her, Lagos, the Centre of Excellence, offers equal opportunity and accommodates all; nevertheless, the corps must stay clear of negativity and embrace emotional intelligence.
“There are numerous opportunities here in Lagos, but you must embrace the challenges you may encounter with patience while enjoying the city’s vibrant atmosphere.
“Don’t be overwhelmed by any situation you may encounter during the service year, but tackle the challenges by taking things one step at a time.
” Pursue your goals and remain focused, always unwind after the hustle and bustle of Lagos; by so doing, you will make headway.”
The NYSC Lagos Coordinator also enjoined the members to navigate the NYSC journey with positivity and a resilient spirit.
“You have to make up your mind that you are going to make your service year a memorable one, which you can achieve by being positive-minded in your activities,” she added.
The 2023 Batch B Stream II orientation camp programme held nationwide, which began Friday, Aug. 18, would end Thursday, Sept. 7.
