NYSC OSUN HOLDS AWARENESSES RALLY AHEAD OF SAED OPENING
The NYSC Osun State Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development Branch held an awareness rally ahead of the opening ceremony of the in-camp training for the SAED program.
The rally which held on Sunday was to sensitize Prospective Corps Members on the Importance of acquiring a skill for self-reliance and wealth creation.
The rally, led by Mrs. Olowo Abosede, the Head of SAED, took place at the NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp, Ede and had in attendance staff of the Branch and selected prospective corps members called the SAED ambassadors.
Mrs Olowo said the rational behind the campaign is the creation of an awareness of the program and the different skill set ahead of Tuesday’s opening ceremony.
“We want them to know the rudimentary values of SAED. We had embarked on this from last week and the event will kick start on Tuesday being the day it will start nationally.
“It would be remembered that SAED was created in 2012 by NYSC national body to reduce unemployment rate in the country. It’s meant to make not only the PCMs but the youths to be self-reliant.
“SAED has 12 sectors with 80 sub-sectors. For example, in Food Processing, we have bakery, cake making, small chops, beverages among others.
“All Corps members are entitled to it and even expected to learn a skill under SAED.
“As a PCM if you want to learn any of our programme we have competent trainers to help you through. And NYSC is not just leaving you alone, we have collaborations with agencies both national and international to avail the needed capital to help start with like CBN and BAA. They are ready to give you a substantial amount of money to start with. By so doing you won’t need to be looking here and there after acquisition of the skill” she added.
PCMs who associated with the unit were seen carrying placards which different programs written as they dance to the band.
