The National Youth Service Corps, NYSC to start posting corps members to Farms.

Speaking during his official visit to the NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp in Sagamu, Ogun State, the corp’s Director General Suleiman Kazaure said this move is in line with the agricultural development programme of the NYSC.

He said that Bauchi, Oyo, Kebbi and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, had been earmarked for the pilot phase.

“It should interest you to know that the NYSC will soon begin its agricultural development scheme where corps members will be posted to Farms for their primary assignments.
“Already the NYSC has acquired active farmlands across the nation’s geopolitical zones with four already fully operational in Kwali, Bauchi, Oyo and Kebbi.
“After this orientation programme for the Batch ‘A’ corps members, we will begin posting some of them to these Farms as a pilot phase.
“Though we are starting with four states for now, we will integrate the other states as time goes, the project is ongoing,” Mr. Kazaure said.

He also tasked the corps members not to seek white-collar jobs which were non-existent but rather develop their potentials for entrepreneurship excellence.
