Cross River State Commissioner for Information, Chief Akin Ricketts has charged the out-going Batch “B” Corps Members to be self reliant, and employers of labor by adding value to the society as they finish their service year.
Ricketts gave the charge during the send forth ceremony organized by the Ministry in honor of the Youth Service corps members who served in the Ministry during their one year national assignment.
He called on the corps members to make the best use of the knowledge acquired during their one year in the Ministry and pledged the continuous support of the Ministry to them as the need arises.
On his part, the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Information, Mr. Freedom Ejom charged the corp members to be ambassadors of the Ministry and the State, by projecting the State as a home of agriculture and tourism.
Responding, one of the corps members, Mr. Francis Ini, thanked the government of Cross River State and the Commissioner for the hospitality they have enjoyed during their stay, adding that the knowledge acquired would never depart from them.
