Procrastination is injurious to personal development, says NYSC boss

The National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, Ondo State Coordinator, Mrs. Victoria Nnenna Ani has admonished corps members not to succumb to procrastination if they want their dreams to come to reality.

Ani made the admonition today when she drew the curtains on the orientation course activities of Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development, SAED, programme for the 2021 Batch ‘B’ (Stream II) corps members.

She said that empirical facts had shown that those who procastinated in taking life savings decisions always found themselves at challenging positions in life.

The NYSC Ondo State boss commended the trainers and facilitators for the invaluable sacrifices and personal commitments they made to give members of the service corps a fresh beginning.

She appealed to corps members not to allow the situation in the country to affect their resolve to continue with the post-camp training and improve on the foundation they had laid at the camp.

“It is an incontrovertible fact that winners don’t quit and quitters don’t win but those who resolve to key into the SAED programme with the intention to better their lots will definitely have something concrete to show for it in the foreseeable future,” she said.

During her brief remarks before the commencement of the exhibition cum competition, the Assistant Director/Head SAED, Mrs. Itohan Ehimwenma, said that corps members should not allow the huge investment made by NYSC management to go down the drain.

She informed the members of the service corps to take advantage of the SAED Training Centre located within the NYSC Zonal Office in Akure to perfect the skills or vocations they had learnt at the camp.

Ehimwenma appreciated the state coordinator for the unflinching support SAED branch had been enjoying under her purposeful and dedicated leadership, and equally sought for more investment into the SAED activities.

During a fashion design competition, the best three were corps members Fawole, Olaitan Oluwatoyin, OD/21B/2537; Okwuazu, Mercy Emenebele, OD/21B/2756 and Otugo, Hope Mmesona, OD/21B/2680.

The make-over and gele tying produced Odaudu, Deborah Ojochemi, OD/21B/3159; Doris Ishaya, OD/21B/2897 and Ifediogor, Ekene Sophia, OD/21B/2545 as best three.

The attraction of the event was conspicuously felt in the food processing competition where Ugo, Precious Mema, OD/21B/2723 came top while Mba, Ifeanyi Nmecha, OD/21B/2677 and GaraJimoh, Mumuni Anataku, OD/21B/2468 were first and second runners up respectively.
