Olobukola said the workshop was not only a platform for the exchange of ideas, but a “veritable avenue for the improvement of the quality of service delivery both on the part of the NYSC, corps employers and other stakeholders towards the realisation of the goals and objectives of NYSC in the task of nation building.”

The two papers, ‘Performance Appraisal: A Tool to Tackle Workplace Challenges and Achieve Set Goals’ and ‘Communication, an Effective Tool in Achieving Set Goals’, delivered by seasoned resource persons, were meant to raise germane issues in the effort to improve the achievement of NYSC goals of the predicted upon National Development.

Represented by her assistant, Mr. A. Abdullazeez, she urged the participants to listen keenly to the resource persons and contribute meaningfully to gain better insight into resolving challenges as quickly as possible and channeling the same to the realisation of a mutually beneficial goal.

“Efforts of the state government in providing an enabling environment for the smooth operation of the scheme in the state is, without doubt, most encouraging. I, therefore, express gratitude to Governor Yahaya Bello for his kindness towards the scheme,” she said.

Dr. Grace Gunwa, in her paper, ‘Communication, an Effective Tool in Achieving Set Goals’, advised corps members to always ask questions on anything or issue they do not understand in order to succeed in all they do.
