Gov. Bala Mohammed of Bauchi state has called on members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) posted to the state that the various skill acquisition programmes they were exposed to on camp were designed to make them job creators and not jobseekers.

Mohammed stated this on Tuesday, during the official closing ceremony of the 2023 Batch C stream 1 orientation exercise at Wailo camp in Ganjuwa Local Government Area of the state.

Represented by his Deputy, Alh. Auwal Jatau, Mohammed also enjoined the corps members to carry these skills with them to their various places of Primary Assignment and perfect them within the period of their National Service.
