Yenagoa—The Caretaker Chairman of Brass Local Government Council, Hon. Alabo Hanson has urged the National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) posted to the area to do their job diligently, remain law-abiding, and respect the customs and traditions of the people.
The Brass helmsman made the call while playing host to the corps members when they paid him an unscheduled visit at the Brass LGA liaison office in Yenagoa on Tuesday.
He assured them of hospitality and safety throughout their service period.
While welcoming them, the council chairman commended the fresh graduates for pursuing education, stressing that education plays a major role in national development.
“You have done well by answering the clarion call to serve your fatherland. On behalf of the good people of Brass Local Government Area, I heartily welcome you. I am certain that you will enjoy your one-year stay here.
