NYSC: Ex-corps members to empower 20,000 youths in IDP camps across Nigeria

The National Association of President’s NYSC Honours Awardees made  known its plan to give skills acquisition training and empowerment to  20,000 youths from various Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camps  across the country.

This was contained in a speech delivered by the president of the  association, Simeon Oladele during a press briefing in Abuja on  October 28, 2016.

The statement reads, “In line with the government commitment to  diversify the economy and reduce youth dependence on non-existing  white collar jobs, the association is also organizing skills  acquisition training and empowerment for (20,000) youths in  partnership with National Directorate on Employment.”

“The first phase of the training is expected to kick off on Wednesday,  9th November, 2016 with the training of internally displaced persons  in Wassa Camp, FCT Abuja.”

The association urge Nigerians to pay more attention on discussing  positive ideas and carry out activities that can move the nation  forward from its current challenges rather than focusing on  discussions that can tear the country apart, reinstating the fact that  Nigeria’s problems are temporary and will vanish someday through concerted efforts.
