Sanwo-Olu made the call at the closing ceremony of the 2024 Batch A, Stream II orientation, held on Tuesday at the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) temporary orientation camp, Iyana-Ipaja, Lagos.

He also urged the corps members to make the service year have meaningful impact on the social-economic and political development of Lagos State and Nigeria at large.

“I implore you to accept your posting to any part of Lagos and see it as an opportunity to participate in the community development programmes, impact your host community and leave indelible legacies.

“These, your predecessors did in the areas of healthcare delivery system, educational services, social services amongst others, just as your services may be needed in the aforementioned.”

Sanwo-Olu, represented by Mr Ibukun Dosunmu, Director, General Service, Lagos State Ministry of Special Duties and Intergovernmental Relations, said that the state government would continue to recognise and reward outstanding corps members at the end of the service year.

She said that it was fundamental for them to obey rules/regulations of NYSC.

“Let the team spirit you cultivated while in camp guide your conducts, set aside tribal sentiments,

“I wish you productive service year, remember that any erring corps member will be penalised in line with the NYSC by-law.
