• NYSC pre-mobilisation lecture holds at the University of Maiduguri
    By Usman Abba Zannah, Abubakar H. Muhammad

    Following the release of the pre-mobilisation list of the 2016 Batch B prospective corps members, a sensitisation lecture was held at the University of Maiduguri to prepare them for the one-year compulsory service. The NYSC state coordinator, Borno state chapter who spoke at the occasion extensively discussed issues relating to mobilisation, registration, camp and other matters related to the one year national scheme. He advised the prospective corps members to prepare their minds for the national service which they are expected to carry out in service of their nation.

    He also noted that while registering online they should be mindful of the information they provide, starting from name, date of birth, state of origin, and most importantly to the biometric thumbprint as it may affect them in the camp if any of them is found to be incorrect or false. He advised against bad conducts and behaviours such as cultism, theft, fanaticism, sexual abuses and what have you as that will only portray their university, families and background in bad light. He warned that any such conduct will result in series of punishment ranging from queries to extension and even down-right de-camping/expulsion.

    Speaking at the occasion, Madam Rebecca Mshelia, Deputy Registrar Students Affairs Division of the University of Maiduguri also advised the prospective corps members to be good ambassadors of the University of Maiduguri, their families and communities. Speaking to Yerwa Express News at the venue, prospective corps members expressed their happiness over the programme and prayed that it continuous every service year. Michael Adeyubi, a graduate of Chemistry Education, said that ‘the lecture has prepared me enough for the national service as it acquainted me with so many informative resources hitherto unknown to me’.

    He further added that, ‘to the best of my knowledge, this is the first time a lecture such as this is taking place’, noting that he will put the knowledge to good use.

    Just get it right
    By Mustapha Modu Bama | October 2, 2016, 12:00 pm

    I write with high sense of joy to congratulate the editorial board of Yerwa Express News and everyone involved in taking this giant stride to be in the midst of thousands in the business of information management and dissemination at a time people of Borno and beyond need it the most. Being the first of its kind in the history of Yerwa (Maiduguri) and the entire north-eastern states, if I have not mistaken, Yerwa Express News should emulate the existing prominent newspaper organisations in the quest of disseminating authentic, reliable and timely news stories in and around Borno state.
