The Governor of Katsina State, Dikko Umaru Radda, has warned corps members deployed in the state against political and religious intolerance and other anti-social behaviours capable of undermining the growth and development of the country.

Radda, who gave the warning during the swearing-in ceremony of the 2024 Batch ‘A’ Stream I corps members held at the NYSC Orientation Camp, Katsina, said all hands must be on desk to develop the nation.

He said: “Let me reiterate that during your stay in the camp and throughout your service year, you are to shun cultism, political, as well as religious intolerance or any other forms of anti-social behaviour.”

Represented by his Deputy, Hon. Faruk Lawal-Jobe, the governor added that the corps members should be guided by the oath of allegiance they swore to uphold and obey the rules and regulations of the scheme.

During the orientation course, he said the corps members would be exposed to various training bordering on good governance, national security, development and economy.

He said corps members’ contributions in community development service had augmented the state manpower needs in various schools and healthcare facilities across the state.

Governor Radda, however, reaffirmed the commitment of the state government not only to the security of lives and properties of the youth corps members but their general welfare.

Earlier, the state NYSC Coordinator, Hajiya Aisha Muhammad, said a total of 1,343 corps members comprising 677 males and 666 females were duly registered for the orientation course.

She warned them against any misconduct and threatened to sanction anyone found wanting in accordance with the provisions of the scheme bye- laws.

While reminding the corps members that the orientation camp is a regimented environment, the coordinator implored them to participate fully in the NYSC Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED).

She said: “I enjoin you to obey all camp rules and regulations as any erring corps member will be referred to the camp court for appropriate sanction in line with the provisions of the NYSC bye-laws.”
