The Speaker of Lagos State Assembly, Chief Mudashiru Obasa has urged NYSC members posted to Lagos State to learn one vocation or the other in addition to their higher institution education.
He said this would enable them to be self-employed and enhance their entrepreneurial development rather than waiting endlessly for scarce employment opportunities.
Chief Obasa stated this when the NYSC members and officials of the agency led by State Coordinator, Mr. Edwin Chinedu Megwa, paid him a courtesy visit in his office.
He also promised to look into the three big tents at their Government College, Ipaja, Agege, Orientation Camp that were destroyed by heavy rainstorms recently.
On the invitation to visit them during their orientation, the speaker said he would pay a visit to the NYSC camp if around at the time.
Earlier in his speech, the State Coordinator, Mr. Edwin Chinedu Megwa said there were about thirty five thousand corps members posted to Lagos annually because people preferred to come Lagos State because of the opportunities there.
Gistongist reports that he said this year orientation camp would commence on Monday, January 18, 2021.
