Salisu Ibrahim, an NYSC corps member who resides in Kaduna but was deployed to serve in Taraba has pleaded to the management of NYSC to approve his redeployment back to Kaduna before his business crumbles.
According to the Kaduna-born Ibrahim, his poultry farm is his source of livelihood and that of the family, as the poultry is one of the biggest in Kaduna State.
“Since I started growing up, I have always nursed the intention of having a very big poultry farm, and has grown up planning towards that until I finally actualized my dream”
“My poultry farm is one of the biggest you can find in Kaduna, and as a result, it brings I and my family a lot of money. My life depends on it and no one can manage it the way I do”
He then advised his fellow corps members not to depend solely on NYSC monthly allowance, popularly called “allawee”, but engage in skills acquisition and entrepreneurship, as this can be of great help after their service year.
“Depending on allawee as a kopa can be dangerous. Once you become a kopa, most parents at that moment stop sending you money, as they now see you as a self-sufficient individual. So when the allawee is no longer there and jobs are not forth coming, you will have something to fall back to.”
