NYSC Launches CV Bank, Job Portal

The Director-General, National Youth Service Corp (NYSC), Brig.-Gen, Sulaiman Kazaure, says a national curriculum vitae bank and job portal will empower Nigerian graduates.

Kazaure made the remarks on Friday in Lagos at the formal launch of the two projects, which was in collaboration with Diamond Bank, Dragnet Solutions Ltd, Gr8jobs Ltd and Sigma Pensions Nig.

The website address, through which graduates can access the portal is http://www.nuscjibs.org.

According to the NYSC boss, the launch of the portal was to take care of the welfare of both serving and past corps members.

“The portal will, among other benefits, serve as a platform for corps members to get information on job vacancies and market themselves to prospective employers, who are searching for suitable candidates.

“It will also provide means of verification of credentials.

“NYSC has been taking steps to empower corps members for self-employment through one of our programmes – the Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) programme.

“Among the strides we have made so far, are the in-camp and off-camp training in various skills in partnerships with the Central Bank of Nigeria and the Bank of Industry.

“Through this, the corps entrepreneurs will benefit from start-up loans at single digit interest rates,’’ Kazaure said.

According to him, the management of the NYSC is consolidating on the successes of the programme through initiatives such as the establishment of Zonal Integrated Skills Centres in the six geopolitical zones.

“The ones for the South-west and North East are already at completion stage at both Ekiti and Gombe states respectively.

“It is gratifying to note that the number of corps members that are subscribing to the SAED programme has continued to grow.

“The reason stems from the fact that self-employment remains the best option in the face of the difficulty of securing white collar jobs.’’

Kazaure commended the NYSC state coordinator and others, whose ingenuity gave birth to the initiative and urged corps members to take advantage of them.

In her keynote address, Mrs Omomene Odike, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the Gr8jobs Ltd, one of the partners, said that the initiative would contribute to Nigeria’s economic development.

“This will show that technology remains the only way out in driving today’s economy.

“I, therefore, urge corps members to get on the job portal as it connects all graduates nationwide.

“It is going to give access to the latest job available in the market as well as avail you opportunity to showcase your skills,’’ she said.

Mr Robert Giles, Head, Retail Banking at the Diamond Bank Plc, remarked that youths need more of information beyond banking.

According to Giles, the youths need a platform to showcase themselves and their talents.

He said that it was a good thing that NYSC bought into the initiative.

“We are proud to work with you and are committed to ensuring the sustainability of this initiative,’’ he said.

In his remarks, the Lagos State Coordinator of NYSC, Mr Mohammed Momoh, said the link created by the national job portal between outgoing corps members seeking jobs and employers of labour was a step in the right direction.

Momoh noted that such graduates would use the platform to reach out to the job market as well as create contacts.

He added that the initiatives would also reduce unemployment among youths in the country.

FG Approve enrolment of corpers for NHIS scheme

The Federal Government has approved the enrolment of National Youth Service Corps members in the National Health Insurance Scheme.

The Director General of the NYSC, Brig. Gen. Suleiman  Kazaure, announced this at the NYSC orientation camp in Ede, Osun State on Thursday during his inspection visit.

He said participation in the scheme would give corps members the opportunity to visit hospitals for treatment anytime they were sick during their service year and to prevent avoidable deaths.

Kazaure said, “Let me inform you that the President has approved the enrolment of all corps members into the NHIS.

“I was impressed when I received a call last night that very soon the whole process will be completed and I am sure that by next week, everything about this will be set.”

Kazaure advised the corps members to utilise the opportunities offered by the NYSC skill acquisition programme to be self-reliant after their service instead of searching for paid jobs.

The DG had earlier inspected a laboratory built by a corps member, Kayode Agarawu, who is serving with Eyiowu-Awi Pharmaceuticals Limited.

 The owner of the pharmaceuticals company, Alhaji Atanda Babatunde, sponsored the project.

Kazaure also inspected the close circuit television cameras installed to monitor movements in and out of the camp to beef up security and ensure the safety of corps members.

The Osun State Coordinator of the NYSC, Mr. Emmanuel Attah, also lauded the corps member and his employer for contributing to the development of humanity and the camp.

Attah said his administration had been working tirelessly to make the camp comfortable for corps members despite little assistance.

The NYSC coordinator said 2,417 corps members were registered in the state but 70 of them were redeployed on health grounds while 29 were redeployed on marital grounds.

He urged corps members to respect the culture and traditions of their host communities in order to live peacefully with them and assured them that Osun State was a peaceful state.

FG to Financially Empower Corps Members Who Have Entrepreneurial Skill

Brig.-Gen. Suleiman Kazaure, Director-General, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has  urged corps members to adopt entrepreneurship mentality to be  self reliant after service and to attain financial independence.

Kazaure made the call while addressing the 2017 Batch ‘B’ Stream 1  corps members deployed to Ogun at the NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp in Sagamu on Thursday.

The director-general, who was represented by Mrs Adetokunbo Idowu, a director in the NYSC,  said the scheme had adopted some innovations to ensure that corps members were better engaged after their service.

Kazaure also advised corps members to develop their potential for entrepreneurship excellence rather than seeking for scarce white-collar jobs.

Kazaure also called on them to utilise the opportunity provided by the NYSC Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) programme to acquire additional skills for self-employment.

“The NYSC has provided all the tools and support you need to develop your capacity to the fullest, it depends on you, there is no short cut to success but hard work.

“Of all the programmes outlined for you during the orientation, there is none more important that you must fully participate in than the SAED programme.

“I want you to create your own jobs by being creative and innovative, you must strive to be labour employers rather than labour seekers. 

“Please don’t look for white-collar jobs, your skills and potential can serve you better in the way of realising your dreams,” he said.

Kazaure said that SAED programme was packaged through a partnership with public and private sector organisations toward building an entrepreneurial capacity.

He also urged corps members to remain in their states of deployment and contribute toward the promotion of national unity rather than seeking redeployment back home. 

Also speaking, Mr John Okpo, the Ogun NYSC Coordinator, thanked Kazaure for the visit.

Represented by the NYSC Director, Audit, Mr Adeleke Abiodun, the director-general said many corps members had died in auto crash in journeys which they embarked upon without permit during their service year.

Kazaure insisted that obtaining proper permission would do the corps members more good before travelling out of their duty post.

He added that “before embarking on any journey while in camp or places of your primary assignment, NYSC members should obtain permission because there are sanctions for not doing so.

“Members should only travel when it is necessary and approved; my visit to the camp here in Bayelsa is to see the condition of corps members.

“I am assuring corps members, not only in Bayelsa but across the country, that the management of the scheme and state governments are fully committed to their welfare.”

The NYSC boss also urged them to respect the religions and cultures of their host communities, saying “I also believe that you have been taught on the ways of life, custom and values of your host state.

“I urge you to respect them, be security conscious and don’t just pack your bag and start to travel up and down.

“Find a way to contribute your quota to building a better Nigeria; always pay attention to the skill acquisition programmes in camp and ensure that your life after service is better.”

The NYSC Coordinator in the state, Mrs Loto Bolade, commended the director-general for the visit, adding that corps members were dedicated to serve their fatherland.

Bolade said that the orientation in the state had been hitch-free since the camp formerly opened on Nov. 21.

She added that “I must say that this Unique Batch of the scheme has been dedicated to camp activities and I am very sure they are going to surpass their colleague’s achievement when they are posted to their host communities.”

Bolade, however, said that the camp was a temporary facility, noting that “it has limited amenities, facilities and water-logged environment due to the terrain of the state.”

NYSC to launch job portal

The National Youth Service Corps ( NYSC ) will soon launch a job portal that would help employers find corps members with requisite skills and qualifications that match their needs.

The Lagos State NYSC Coordinator, Prince Mohammed Momoh told The Nation in an interview yesterday at the Swearing in of 2,482 Batch B corps members that the portal had been approved by the NYSC Director-General, Brig-Gen Sule Kazaure, after a test run.

“We piloted a job portal in Lagos. After perfecting it, we have deployed it. It has been approved by the DG ansd should be launched in the course of the year,” he said.

Momoh thanked the Lagos State government for renovating the 2,500-bed capacity orientation camp located in Iyana- Ipaja, Lagos.
“We appealed to the Governor and he came to our aid. He mobilised a contractor to give us this renovation.

He not only re-painted the building but repaired the toilets and the electrification. Every part of the camp was touched,” he said.
In his speech, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State, who was represented by the Commissioner for Special Duties and Inter-Governmental Affairs, Mr Oluseye Oladejo, counseled the new corps members to take advantage of public funds to start businesses after being trained in camp.

“I enjoin you to pay special attention to the Skill Acquisition Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) initiative which is part of activities developed to empower and prepare you for life after service.

The Lagos State Government has established the Employment Trust Fund which provides financial support to Lagos State residents and National Youth Service Corps members serving in Lagos State and who have received camp and post-camp SAED training.

Through this fund, you stand to benefit from a start-up capital to ensure you become job creators and not job seekers upon the completion of your national assignment,” he said.

The oath of allegiance was administered on the corps members by the Chief Judge of Lagos, justice Opeyemi Oke represented by Justice Oluwatoyin Ipaye.

Corps members who spoke with The Nation praised the facilities on the camp.

Jennifer Okpala, a Law graduate of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) said she was enjoying her time on camp.

“It has been fun meeting lots of people. The facilities are okay. I will say this is the best camp in Nigeria,” she said.

Jesufemi Ayodele, another Law graduate from the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, said the officials were courteous to corps members.
“They treat us with respect,” he said.
