"... Mr Kola Balogun, the Chairman, Governing Council of the NYSC in  Osun,  on Tuesday  advised  corps members to prepare for self employment after service. Balogun made the call at the closing parade for the 2012 Batch ‘A’ corps members held at the permanent orientation camp in Ede, Osun. According to him, corps members must start making  maximum use of the various skills acquisition opportunities initiated by the NYSC  in the camp. “The government cannot do it alone by creating jobs for all the teeming youths  and therefore you have to avail yourselves of the various training opportunities at your disposal. “Successful men in the world today are those who used their brains to achieve feats;  so you must have discovered your talents to know where you can excel in life,” he said. Gov. Rauf Aregbesola, in an address he sent to the occasion,   urged corps members to use the skills they acquired for the  benefit and progress of  society. “The founding fathers of the scheme invested a lot of  human and capital resources in the project and you should strive hard to sustain the legacy for the incoming generation,” he said. He also advised them not to misuse the martial training they had acquired for self-defence by not using it to intimidate or harass members of the  host communities. Also speaking,  Mr Henry Enyenihi, the State Coordinator of the NYSC,  charged  corps members  to acquire more skills in their primary places of assignment to complement the training they got  in the camp..."
