Obaseki gave the task at the closing ceremony of the 2023 Batch ‘A’ Stream II Orientation Course in Okada, Edo State.

The governor who was represented by Chief of Staff to Deputy Governor, Kingsley Ehigiamusoe, said they should strive to meet the expectations of Nigerians by contributing towards the progress and development of the country.

“My dear compatriots, as you begin the next phase of the service, I urge you to sustain the spirit of patriotism, hard work and resilience, which you imbibed during the Orientation Course.

“It is my ardent hope that you will strive to meet the expectations of Nigerians by contributing towards the progress and development of our dear country”, Obaseki said.

Going further, Gov Obaseki admonished them to avoid the use of the social media for ethnic jingoism, rumour peddling and the promotion of hatred rather their activities online should be targeted at self-improvement as well as for the promotion of the unity, peace and development of the country.

Advising them further, the governor said they must be wary of acts that can portray the scheme in bad light, especially drug abuse and trafficking, cybercrime and  advanced-fee-fraud.

On the part of the scheme, Edo State Coordinator, Oladeinde Foluke, said the three weeks training received on camp has not only instilled in them the core values of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme but has also impacted positively in them the readiness to embark on developmental projects that will help uplift the nation.
