The Coppers presidential visit have over the years been part of Daura Community Sallah celebration.
Reaffirming his support to the scheme established in 1973, the President told the corps members that “It is better to know all the country than for people to be state-inclined.
“I always look forward to meeting the NYSC team because since I served mostly in the south when I was in the military, some people in Lagos the only thing they know is the sea.
“For them (NYSC members) to be brought to the desert or near the Sahel region is a very difficult thing but it will make an impact on Nigeria.
“I have personally spoken to Gen. Gowon to thank him for having the initiative to start the NYSC programme. It is very good for Nigeria,” he said.
The President formally welcomed the Corps members to the ancient town of Daura and asked them to enjoy their national service year. He also donated a bull, 10 bags of rice and half-a-million Naira to the Corps members.
What else, the selfie Sallah took over.
