NYSC: Programme Graduates Must Not Miss – Ondo CP

The Commissioner of Police, Ondo State Command, CP Jesubiyi, Olusola Taiwo has disclosed that NYSC programme as designed should be what a graduate youth must crave to participate in as a result of its rich contents.

Jesubiyi made the disclosure in his office when he received in audience the NYSC management team in Ondo State led by the State Coordinator, Mrs. Victoria Nnenna Ani.

According to the Commissioner of Police, the founding fathers of the noble Scheme deserved applause and encomiums for putting together such a beautiful programme that has remained a turning point not only for the graduate youths mobilised for national service but equally for the nation in her entirety for the growth and development it has brought to the country.

“I want to say with all sense of sincerity and patriotism that the National Youth Service Corps is a programme that all focused graduate youths should be prepared to participate in as it builds characteristics of leadership such as perseverance, endurance, visionary, teamwork as well as hard work and industry in participants”.

“My participation in the programme during the 1987/88 service year in Kaduna where I was deployed, and posted to Zaria after the orientation course defined my vision in such a way that sacrifice to the fatherland remains sacrosanct and I want to say it with pride that NYSC is the best thing that has ever happened to this country”.

The Police chief whose outstanding performance in operations and intelligence gathering at the Force Criminal Investigation Department Annex paved the way for his appointment to head the national security organisation in Ondo State said that the leadership training coupled with the discipline he received during his service year assisted him in no small measure to navigate successfully the sensitive and challenging terrain of policing in Nigeria.

“Every Nigerian graduate whether trained within or outside the country should see the clarion call to participate in the national service as a lifetime opportunity to contribute meaningfully to their fatherland in terms of giving the much-anticipated sacrifice and rendering quality services wherever they are posted to in all the nooks and crannies of the country”.

The Security expert whose administrative prowess in national security and crime bursting in the country is applauded in several quarters said that the Nigeria Police will continue to serve the interest of citizens and residents of this country irrespective of where they come from.

“I want to assure the leadership of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Ondo State that the mantra, Police is your friend is not merely a saying but that which we implement to the letter for the betterment of everyone in this country and I wish to say that this Command will not fail in her responsibility to protect the members of the service corps”.

“NYSC has been a team player with the Nigeria Police since it was established 50 years ago and I want to reiterate that the relationship and synergy which has existed between the two Federal Government institutions will wax stronger under my watch because the two carry the identity of the government at the centre” he said.

The Ogun State-born Commissioner of Police thanked the NYSC for deeming it fit to come over to congratulate as well as felicitate with him on his appointment and craved for their prayers so that he would succeed in the herculean tasks ahead.

While congratulating and welcoming the new Commissioner of Police to Ondo State, the NYSC Coordinator, Mrs. Victoria Nnenna Ani charged him to restore the confidence Nigerians have in the Nigeria Police by ensuring community policing is giving utmost priority and attention.

“The Commissioner of Police Sir, your proven track records must have informed the decision of the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to post you as CP to oversee the administration of the Nigeria Police in the Sunshine State and I want to solicit your support to give priority attention to the safety and protection of all corps members serving in the state as well as those who are passing in transit”.

“We believe in your ability to safeguard the lives and property of everyone in Ondo State but like Oliver Twist, I want to make a passionate appeal to you to use your good offices to direct Area Commanders, Divisional Police Officers as well as officers and men on special duties to giving adequate routine and undivided attention to monitoring and surveillance of Corps Lodges and other residential apartments of corps members in the state”.

Mrs. Ani charged the new helmsman of Police authority in Ondo State to strengthen the already established relationships between the two agencies by ensuring that NYSC field officers in their respective Local Governments are integrated into Public Police Community Relations Committee (PPCRC).

The State Coordinator while thanking the Command for the quality of officers and men deployed to the NYSC orientation camp each time the Scheme have orientation courses, used the opportunity of the medium to invite the Commissioner of Police to visit and share his service year experience with prospective corps members that are expected for the 2023 Batch ‘B’ (Stream 1) orientation course coming up between Wednesday, 12th July and Tuesday, 1st August 2023.

Mrs. Ani wished the Commissioner of Police a trouble-free tenure in the state and pray to God to grant him the wisdom of Solomon and the strength of Samson to pilot the affairs of the Nigeria Police in the Sunshine State.

The State Coordinator was accompanied on the visit by the Assistant Directors/Heads of Branches; Mr. Olugbenga Justus Adefehinti, Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED); Mrs. Adejoke Ayodele Fashola, Corps Discipline and Reward CD&R); Mrs. Christianah Oluwatoyin Afolayan, Corps Inspection and Monitoring (CIM) and Mr. Babawale Oyinloye Owolabi, Deployment and Relocation (D&R).
