The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has warned corps members to avaoid lobbying to be relocated out of the states they were deployed to for their one year mandatory national service.
Mrs. Nnena Ukonu, Director, Corps Mobilization of NYSC, gave the warning on Thursday in Umunya camp, Anambra state while addressing corps members undergoing their three weeks orientation course.
Ukonu described lobbying for relocation as risky venture which many had regretted later in life.
“Avoid lobbying to be relocated out of the state. It may end up in someone lobbying out his luck or destiny,” she advised.
She urged corps members to rather settle down and imbibe the entrepreneurial spirit of the people of the state.
“I challenged you to sieze the opportunity being offered by the NYSC skills acquisition to upgrade yourself towards self-reliance at the end of your service year,” she added.
