He adviced them to continue to be good citizens of Nigeria and not to do anything that would destroy the institution they are coming from or their family members.

His statement read, “You must be prepared to serve anywhere you are posted to within Anambra State and please don’t waste your time asking for any relocation out of the State, the State is peaceful, security is sure and the people here are good people.

“You must respect the culture, norms, traditions, and values of your host communities.

“Ensure that you remain peaceful, resilience, prepared, and ready to contribute your quarter to your host community, add value to the community you are posted to, and ensure that you carry out community development services for them to feel your impact and that is the major essence of your one-year mandatory service to your father’s land.

The NYSC boss, while commending the State Coordinator of the Scheme, Blessing Ekene Iruma, and her management team for keeping the Camp environment clean, also urged the Corp Members to participate actively in the NYSC Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) programme for self-reliance after service.

In her address, the NYSC State Coordinator, Blessing Iruma said that the reason behind the carnival display was to promote the oneness of Nigeria and bring the corps members together to promote unity.

According to her, NYSC Carnival is deliberately set up to give power to the cord of unity among Corps members as it unites people of different cultures together and gives them the opportunity to learn and appreciate things from other cultures.

“It is also a programme organized to showcase different cultures, tribes, and traditions within the country and celebrate the uniqueness of Nigeria, through songs, dressing, and different festivities.

“This unique NYSC Camp Carnival is among the numerous activities here that give long-lasting memories. The activities are done based on platoons. Each platoon selects a group of talented Corps members who represent them with cultural heritage of many tribes that is showcased and Corps members avail themselves of the opportunity to learn from the cultures that are entirely different from theirs.

“Camp carnival creates an opportunity for Corps members to gather, ease stress, and rejoice with one another during their stay in the orientation camp, hence the introduction of the cultural carnival in the orientation course.
