Nura Umar, Borno state coordinator of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), has enjoined corps members to remain calm as security has improved in the state.


According to NAN, Umar spoke on Monday at the closing ceremony of the 2021 batch ‘B’ stream I orientation exercise for corps members posted to the state but deployed to Katsina.

Umar assured the corps members that the NYSC has put measures in place to ensure that they are safe throughout their stay in the state.

“The prevailing security challenge in Borno informed the establishment of the temporary camp here in Katsina state” he said.


“I assure you that we are not going to post any corps member to the areas with security threats. We are in active collaboration with all the security agencies to safeguard the lives and property of corps members.”

Umar said the corps members would be posted to infrastructure, education, health and agriculture sectors for their primary assignments.

He encouraged them to be committed to their duties and respect the culture and tradition of their host communities.


The NYSC coordinator also advised the corps members to make use of the skills they acquired during the orientation course to establish their own business.

Umar commended the Katsina state government for its support during the three-week orientation.
