President Muhammadu Buhari has been spotted hosting some serving NYSC members in his native Daura home.
President Buhari on Tuesday, ensured that he hosted some NYSC members in his hometown of Daura, Katsina state, as part of of the Sallah celebration.
The president heartily welcomed the corp members to his home and then took time to pose for pictures with them afterwards.
The President shared photos from the meeting by himself on Twitter.
Sharing photos of himself posing with the NYSC members, President Buhari explained that meeting with corpers is one of the Sallah traditions he looks forward to the most.
He wrote: “One of the Sallah traditions I look forward to the most is the visit by Youth Corpers posted to Daura. I think the NYSC is one of the best things that has happened to Nigeria, because of the opportunity it gives young Nigerians to see and know different parts of the country.
“Many of the Corps members posted to Daura are from southern Nigeria,and have never lived in or experienced this part of the country. For them to be brought to the desert or near the Sahel region is a difficult thing, but I have no doubt it will make a positive impact on Nigeria.
“I welcomed them to my ancient town of Daura, and asked them to enjoy their service year, and the hospitality of the people. Regardless of where they’re from, Daura is also their home, and I hope that in the years to come they will look back to this time with fond memories.”
