Director General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier General Mohammed Kaku Fadah, has said that he will not pay attention to people criticizing the National Youth Service Corps Trust Fund (NYSCTF) because they lack knowledge about its benefits.
Speaking yesterday in Abuja when the executives of the Civil Society Coalition for Transparency and Good Governance paid him a visit, he said the emergence of the trust fund would improve the affairs of the scheme better than it has been.
He said with the trust fund in place, corps members who have learnt various entrepreneurial and vocational skills during the service years would find it easier to access loans to start up their businesses.
Fadah noted that with the Trust Fund, there would be a massive improvement in the orientation programmes, stressing that the fund would be beneficial to the scheme and society at large.
He assured that he would live up to expectations in taking the scheme to greater heights adding that he was open to discussions on any challenge.
Earlier, the executive secretary of the organisation, Victor Udom, called on the director general to ensure that he puts out his best to ensure that the bill for the Trust fund was passed into law.
He called on President Muhammadu Buhari to leave a mark in the minds of the youths and Nigerians by ensuring that he signs the trust fund bill into law.
