The NYSC Director of Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development, Hilary Nasamu, has called on Corps members to take advantage of partnership between the National Youth Service Corps and Bank of Industry (BOI) to get loan for business start up.
Hilary Nasamu said this on Monday when he visited the NYSC temporary Orientation camp in Gombe State.
According to him, Bank of Industry will give loan to corps members with good business proposal without collateral. But they would be required to surrender or pledge their NYSC certificate.
Those that will receive the loan are expected to repay after a period of three years.
“Every country relies on its youth to redirect their energies for self reliance.
“The Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development Programme is introduced to solve the problem of unemployment.
“Jobs are no longer easy to come by because of the state of the economy. You must take this programme seriously.
“The experience the NYSC confers on you is the best and it is expected to widen your horizon on a lot of things.”
Hilary Nasamu also encouraged corps members to take the post camp skills acquisition training seriously.
He pointed out that the Integrated Northeast Skill Acquisition Centre in Gombe has the capacity to contain over 400 corps members.
