Wife of Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State, Florence, has commended the setting up of the National Youth Service Corps.
She said this in Ibadan on Wednesday while welcoming the new state Coordinator of National Youth Service Corps, Olanipekun Alao.
Ajimobi said, “I believe in organising welcome parties to make the corps members feel at home and relieved that they are not in an unfriendly environment.”
According to her, the one-year national service exposes the corps members to realities of life and independent survival techniques.
Ajimobi said, “I will always support the NYSC because I believe the youths are our future leaders and they should be moulded in the right way.”
She declared her readiness to support the NYSC scheme in the state in the area of training of corps members in information and communication technology as well as in vocational skill acquisition.
Earlier in his speech, Alao commended Ajimobi for her contribution to the welfare and human capacity development of corps members in the state.
He expressed the hope that as mother of the youths in the state, the governor’s wife would continue to assist the scheme in the state.
