The Delta State Governor, Sheriff Oborevwori, has urged members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in the state to demonstrate the highest sense of discipline, honesty, and selflessness through their conduct.

Oborevwori said this at the official opening/swearing-in ceremony of the 2023 Batch ‘B’ Stream I Corps Members deployed to the state at the NYSC Orientation Camp in Issele Uku.

“As agents of hope in our national aspirations, you should be confident in the ability of the country to pull through its multi-faceted challenges.

“I plead with you to be serious with the orientation course including other phases of the mandatory one-year service.

“You will encounter challenges that will require you to display your expertise as leaders, mentors, and role models,” he said.
