NYSC counsels corpers on unity

The National Youth Service Corps, on Thursday, advised corps members to always promote unity wherever they find themselves and shun ethnicity.

Speaking at the passing out ceremony of the 2020 Batch A corps members, the Lagos State Coordinator, NYSC, Mr Eddy Megwa, encouraged them to be good ambassadors of the scheme.

Megwa, who spoke at the Ikeja Local Government Council secretariat, where the corps members were presented with their certificates of service, said, “This passing out ceremony is happening in all states of the federation; 5,720 are passing out in Lagos and because of the COVID-19, we cannot bring all of them together; we would have taken them to Iyana Ipaja, but because of the pandemic, we decided to hold in all the LGAs and that is where we are giving them their certificate of national service.

“My message to them is that in the spirit of the NYSC, and as they are going to the society they should remain ambassadors of the scheme. They should carry on this unity song and promote unity.”

We should deemphasise ethnicity in this country and promote unity.
