“Since commencement of this Batch A Stream I orientation course, we have not recorded any security challenge.

“NYSC with collaborative institute have organised technologically driven skills acquisition and entrepreneurship development trainings to make corps members self-reliants rather than job seekers. The trainings will ultimately transform them to employers of labour, “he said.
