Ilorin—Kwara State governor, Bukola Saraki, has cautioned corps members serving in the state against unnecessary travels to guarantee their safety as planned by the state government.

Saraki gave the advice yesterday at the closing ceremony of the orientation course for the corps members of the 2009 batch ‘C’ at Yikpata, in Edu Local Government Area of the state.

The governor who was represented by the Speaker of the State House of Assembly,  Babatunde Mohammed, said the  government accorded  paramount importance to the security of the corps members.

He said: “The nation places very high premium on your security, productivity and your welfare.

This is why I enjoin you to shun all activities that are inimical to your safety and security including unauthorized and unnecessary travels which expose you to sundry hazards.”

Saraki noted that the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme had  made a great impact on the development of the country  and urged the corps members to remain committed to the vision of the scheme throughout their service year.

He urged the corps members to always be guided by “the ideals of patriotism, diligence, highest level of moral conduct, loyalty, dedication, discipline, fairness, equity, and fear of God.”

The governor commended the management of the NYSC in the state for its commitment and steadfast dedication to the attainment of the  goals of the scheme.
