Yenagoa, April 15, 2019 Mrs Loto Bolade, the Coordinator of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Bayelsa, has advised the 2019 Batch “A” corps members posted to the state to imbibe the spirit of teamwork while there.
She also advised them to be obedient to constituted authorities, especially, at their places of primary assignment.
Bolade said this in a press statement issued to journalists on Monday by Mr Matthew Ngobua, the information officer of the NYSC in the state.
The coordinator said that the essence of drills in the camp was to teach corps members the importance of discipline, as well as how they could ensure orderliness in their day-to-day activities.
She said, “Obey your leaders in your everyday lives; orderliness is very important. As corps members, you must be punctual at your places of primary assignment.
“You must also be punctual at where you will be holding your Community Development Services (CDS).
“As you are about to pass out on Tuesday, make sure you report promptly at your places of primary assignment.
“Obey rules and regulations and work as a team everywhere you find yourself,’ Bolade said.
Earlier, the Camp Commandant, Capt. P.E. Okubotimibi, said that the drills were some of the ways to assess the standard of discipline of officers among military and paramilitary organisations.
Okubotimibi explained that Guard 2 which comprised of Platoons Three and Four won the competition, while Guard Four won the best Guard Commander gong at the end of the drills.
