Your Uniform Is Not Immunity To Commit Crime, NYSC Warns Corps Members



The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), has sent a note of warning to corps members serving in Osun not to see their uniform as immunity to commit crime or get involved in social vices.

Mr Emmanuel Attah, the Osun State Coordinator of NYSC, gave this warning during the closing ceremony of the 2018 Batch C Stream I, corps members orientation course, at the Osun NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp in Ede.

Attah, who said he was pleased with the corps members’ conduct during the orientation course, said they were now equipped to move into the next phase of the service programme.

He said the corps were being challenged to exhibit exemplary conduct in their places of primary assignment, execute community based projects and eschew social vices.

“My dear corps members, I urgue you all to be good ambassadors of the NYSC wherever you find yourselves and put in your best and be security conscious at all times.

“May I sound a note of warning that your uniform is not immunity for you to commit crime or be involved in social vices, if you do so, the long arms of the law will take it’s due course.

“Also be reminded not to embark on frivolous journeys, you owe yourselves a duty to stay alive during the service year.” he said

Attah equally used the occasion to appeal to corps employers to receive the corps members with open arms, treat them with utmost care and provide them with enabling environment which includes decent accommodation, tansport and medical care.

The Governor of Osun, Rauf Aregbesola in his own remarks urged the corps members to accept their postings without resentment or bad feelings but with avowed determination to leave their host communities better than they meet them.

Aregbesola who was represented by the state Commissioner for Social Protection, Sports and Special Needs, Biyi Odunlade, said the people of the state are hospitable and are fully prepared and eager to receive the corps members.

He however charged them on the need to be security conscious, in accordance to the sensitization given to them by security experts during their camp trainings, saying “God is the ultimate security but humans should live right and stay out of harm’s way as much as possible”.

He equally admonished them to shun the get rich syndrom and never to get themselves involved in activities which would bring sorrow to humanity but rather indulge in acts that would impart positively and put smiles on the faces of Nigerians
