The State Coordinator, NYSC, Lagos State, Mrs. Adenike Adeyemi, has said that the introduction of Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurial Development Programme into the NYSC scheme has helped many fresh graduates to be self-reliant, creating employment opportunities instead of searching for non-existent jobs.
Speaking at the closing ceremony of the ‘Batch A Orientation Course’ in Lagos recently, she said the programme has resulted in many freshgraduates looking for alternative means of engagement after graduation.
She maintained that the skill acquisition programme now equips corps members to explore other areas of opportunities instead of relying onwhite collar jobs.
“I want to say that gradually through the NYSC’s skill acquisitions and entrepreneurship development programme introduced into the scheme, the corps members now have a paradigm shift. Most of themno longer think only the way of white collar jobs. Most of them know that it is possible to live and fire their passions,” she said.
The Lagos NYSC boss maintained that the programme provides veritable opportunities for fresh graduates who would have been idling away at home to be gainfully engaged, adding that the skill compliments their certificates and helps to reduce the unemployment in the society.
