Represented by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Jalal Arabi, the Minister said the Corps members performed excellently in the discharge of their responsibilities.

“We cannot thank you enough and those that guided you to put in your best. The excellent performance you put across couldn’t have been what it was without the guidance you got from your Instructors and Coordinators. 

“To the Coordinators, we want to put it on record that the Scheme was well represented and made you proud” the Minister noted.

She thanked the NYSC for partnering with the Ministry and requested for more collaboration in the future.
