The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Oyo State has joined forces with Landnest Homes and Properties to provide training for 300 corps members in the state.

The aim of the partnership is to equip the corps members with the necessary skills and knowledge to become self-employed especially in the real estate business, and be financially independent.

The Oyo State Coordinator of NYSC, Mr Odoba Abel Ocheh, expressed his gratitude to Landnest Homes and Properties for their support in creating job opportunities for the corps members.

He lauded the real estate firm for their efforts in providing the corps members with the skills they need to become job creators instead of job seekers.

During a meeting with the management of Landnest Homes and Properties at the NYSC Camp in Iseyin, Abel commended the company for their commitment to the development of the corps members. “Your company has been very impactful coming to sensitise Corps members and giving them the necessary skills that would assist them during the service year. At least to generate income and wealth and also increase their income during the service year.”
