    NIPR organises roadwalk to promote peace, integration

    The Nigeria Institute of Public Relations (NIPR), on Monday in Abuja organized a roadwalk for the purpose of promoting peace and unity, security and national integration.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the roadwalk, which took off from the Unity Fountain, Abuja, terminated at the Headquarters of the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) and was received by the Acting Director General, Salihu-Abdulhamid Dembos.

    President and Chairman of governing council, NIPR, Malam Mukhtar Sirajo, in his remarks during the exercise said that the roadwalk was to herald the institute’s forthcoming event.

    He explained that the event was the citizens’ summit for national Integration, peace and security, adding that the event was scheduled to be held in Abuja, on Tuesday and Wednesday.

    Sirajo also said that the roadwalk was to campaign for the revival of a ”Nigeria where ethnicity, religion and place of birth do not have any negative submission on citizens.

    ” He disclosed that NIPR was working towards ”Nigeria where unity would be the main purpose of its existence.

    ” Sirajo added that Nigeria has had several dialogues, summits and fora but none was organized by the NIPR.

    According to him, this drive is different, this one is organised by people who are trained to manage relationships, and the core problem of the country is a `breakdown of relationships’.

    He, however, appreciated the efforts of some Nigerians who had organised summits in the past to achieve a one Nigeria purpose.

    Sirajo added, ”this time around, it would be handled by those who are managing communication and it would work by the grace of God. “Nigeria integration may not be achieved in a day, it is a gradual process that is going to be all encompassing.

    ”We are taking a holistic look at the country’s problem, we believe that all the problems that Nigeria is facing have solutions.

    “All these problems arose as a result of the breakdown of communication.

    Once the communication components are in place and they are working, all of these challenges will fall back to their rightful places.

    “We are going to have purposeful leaders, we are going to have leaders that connect with the people, we are going to have followers that connect to the leadership, and followers who will ask their leaders the right questions.

    ” The Director, Press and Public Relations, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Mr Eddy Megwa, called for youth involvement in the reviving process of the country, saying, ”they were no longer the leaders of tomorrow but today.

    ” According to him, NYSC was on the fastlane to galvanise youth organisations in the whole Africa to achieve a positive end for the country.

    He said ,”NYSC was having the biggest youth assembly in Africa.

    The youths must be fully involved in the reviving process of the country.

    “We have been able to make them manage the orientation camp by themselves, they are fresh from school, they are in-charge.

    ”They are in charge of the administrative structure of the orientation camp, and they have gotten a lot of experience from there.

    “This experience is the same thing we want to transform the Nigeria nation, the youths must be given the opportunity to take the leadership position of the country, we are saying that the youth should be allowed.

    ” Responding, Dembos appreciated the good work being done by NIPR and its readiness to ”revive Nigeria through the work of its hand.

    ” He pledged NTA’s continuous support to NIPR to achieve the best for the country.

    Give corps members enabling environment to contribute to economy – Commission

    Give corps members enabling environment to contribute to economy – Commission Give corps members enabling environment to contribute to economy – Commission< Chairman, National Salaries Income and Wages Commission (NSIWC), Mr Ekpo Nta, has urged employers to give corps members enabling environment to contribute  to the socio-economic development of the country.

    Nta said this when the Director-General, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brig.-Gen. Muhammad Fadah, paid him a courtesy visit in Abuja.

    A statement issued after the visit by the NYSC Director, Press and Public Relations, Mr Eddy Megwa, said that Nta decried the rate of corps members’ rejection by some employers in the country.

    Nta also said that the greatest disservice to any corps member was rejection.

    “I appeal to state governments to provide conducive orientation camps with modern facilities to train corps members deployed to their states on vocational skills that will make them employers of labour.

    “For the 2023 budget, all Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) should be required to state in their budget, what they are going to provide for NYSC so that it becomes statutory and the country can plan with that,” he said.

    Nta also condemned the under-utilisation of corps members, adding that all employers of labour should adhere strictly to the posting policy of NYSC, which covered education, health and infrastructure.

    He described NYSC as one of the institutions that had continuously helped in uniting the nation through the deployment of corps members to the nooks and crannies of the country.

    Fadah thanked Nta and his team for assisting the scheme, especially in terms of the upward review of corps members’ monthly allowances.

    He added that there was need for every stakeholder to nurture the youth very well and prepare them for higher responsibilities  as good leaders.

    He also promised a stronger collaboration between NYSC and the commission.

    “The NYSC is a bridge between the youth and the larger society.

    We thank you most sincerely for what you have done,” he said.

    Fadah also said that the NYSC Trust Fund bill had scaled through at the National Assembly but was awaiting presidential assent.

    He said when approved, the fund would make business grants available to deserving corps members to start their vocational business in line with the skills they acquired during service.

    Wike decries dehumanising NYSC facilities, provides modern equipment

    Gov. Nyesom Wike of Rivers on Thursday said his administration was delighted at improving the poor condition of facilities used by members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Rivers.

    Wike disclosed this during the inauguration ceremony of the 5,000 capacity Ultra Modern Auditorium built by his administration at Nonwa-Gbam in Tai Local Government Area of the state.

    The governor said that members of NYSC, who were humans did not need to be subjected to facilities that dehumanised them while serving in the state.

    Wike noted that some people had said that NYSC was a federal agency, but he asked to know who are the members of NYSC posted to the state serving.

    According to Wike, it doesn’t matter whether they are Federal Government agency or not, what matters to us is the services they render and those services are rendered to the people of the state.

    “Therefore, we would do everything we can to make them comfortable,” he said.

    Gov. Wike noted how difficult it could be for corps members and their officials not to have a comfortable place whenever their coordinator or the Director General would choose to address them collectively.

    In his speech, the Director-General of NYSC, Brig.-Gen. Mohammed Fadah, thanked the governor for his magnanimity and named the facility, “His Excellency Nyesom Ezenwo Wike Hall”.

    Fadah explained that there was no NYSC camp across the country that had such auditorium built by the Rivers State governor.

    According to Fadah, Wike had done a lot for us, this occasion offers us a unique opportunity for appreciating his numerous people-oriented projects.

    “It is also heartwarming to note that the state government, under your able  leadership, has done a lot for NYSC.

    “You renovated corps’ hostel and official residences and the multipurpose hall.

    You constructed drainages, you reconstructed the burnt dinning hall, you restored the payment of monthly allowances of corps members to Rivers State.

    “You restored payment of running cost to the secretariat among other support,” he said.

    Mr Deinma Iyalla, the Rivers Commissioner for Special Projects, said the 5,000 capacity Ultra Modern Auditorium had a seating arrangement with the gallery taking 2500 and the ground level with the same number.

    Iyalla listed the facilities fitted in the building as four multimedia screens, computerised Public Address system, nine offices, two boardrooms, and two changing rooms.

    Our support for NYSC, a token of appreciation – Wike

     Gov. Nyesom Wike of Rivers on Thursday said the government was determined to improve facilities owned by the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Rivers.

    Wike disclosed this while inaugurating the 5,000 capacity ultra-modern auditorium which the state government built for the NYSC at Nonwa-Gbam in Tai Local Government Area. He said that youth corps members should not be accommodated in facilities that dehumanise them while serving the state.

    According to him, what matters to the state government is the services the youth corps members are rendering to the people.

    “We would do everything we can to make them comfortable,” he said.

    Wike said with the new auditorium, corps members and their officials would be comfortable whenever their coordinator or the director-general wanted to address them.

    In his speech, the Director-General of NYSC, Brig.-Gen. Mohammed Fadah, thanked the governor for his magnanimity and named it “Nyesom Ezenwo Wike Hall.’ Fadah explained that there was no other NYSC camp in the country that had such auditorium built by the Rivers Government.

    He said that Wike had done a lot for the NYSC, adding that the occasion offered him an opportunity to appreciate his numerous people-oriented projects.

    “You renovated corps’ hostels and official residences and the multi-purpose hall.

    “You constructed drainages, you reconstructed the burnt dinning hall, you restored the payment of monthly allowances of corps members serving in Rivers State.

    “You restored payment of running cost to the secretariat,  among other support,” he said.

    Mr Deinma Iyalla, Commissioner for Special Projects, said the auditorium’s gallery could accommodate 2,500 people and the ground level also accommodating 2,500 people.

    Iyalla said the auditorium has four multi-media screens, a computerised public address system, nine offices, two boardrooms and two changing rooms.
