The Governor, represented by his Senior Adviser and Counselor, Saadu Salahu, also assured them of their security and general welfare during their service year in the State.

“I enjoin you to be security conscious at all times. In particular, I advise you to avoid risky engagements such as staying out late at night, attending night parties, visiting dangerous places, and accepting car rides from strangers,” he said.

He also urged them to shun drug abuse and trafficking, cybercrime, advanced-fee fraud, and other vices capable of truncating their future dreams.

While encouraging them to sustain the commendable patriotic zeal and high level of discipline they demonstrated while at the orientation camp, he said: “My dear compatriots, the next phase of the service year is of great significance as the entire nation looks up to you for your expected roles in advancing the unity and development of our fatherland. I therefore enjoin you to sustain the spirit of patriotism, hard work, and resilience which you have imbibed during the orientation course.”

The Governor further charged them to build on the skills they have acquired during the vocational and entrepreneurial training at the camp by availing themselves of opportunities for post-camp training.
