WIFE of Ekiti State governor, Mrs. Bisi Fayemi, has tasked the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members to acquire vocational skills in handicraft to survive the current unfavourable economic condition in the country.
She stated this yesterday during her visit to the state NYSC orientation camp in Ise-Ekiti, Ise/Emure Council Area of the state.
Mrs. Fayemi also advised the female corps members to take advantage of their service year to get suitors among eligible bachelors in the state.
She visited the camp to boost the morale of the fresh graduates and to inspect the handicraft finished products made by the corps members during their orientation.
Among items on display were beads, clothing, batik, hats, finger foods, barbing and hair-dressing equipment, paints, solar energy-powered oven and foot wear.
She said the state government would continue to support corps members posted to the state to acquire vocational skills towards becoming self-employed at the end of their service year.
