EMPOWERMENT: Osun NYSC Members Inspire Youths With “The-Bait” Project

On Saturday, the 16th of November, students from across the entire length and breadth of the state of Osun assembled in the Open forum hall of the Osun State Broadcasting Corporation (OSBC), Osogbo. The agenda for the day was “The-Bait” – a tournament of debate competitions organized by a team of corp members.

Corp member, Martin Chisom Ojukwu, state coordinator of the project in his opening address intimated that the event was only the second stage of the three-tier project aimed at education, development and youth empowerment.
The first stage was an essay competition which served as a screening process into the second stage. The second stage – the event for the day – was a training course aimed at preparing the students for the debates proper which were scheduled to come in the third and final stage.
The first course was taken by Corps member Oroghene Chokor, Osun central coordinator of “The-Bait”; he guided the students through a writing drill aimed at sharpening their writing skills. Next up was Corps member Alor Omotayo, “The-Bait” ambassador with OSBC, who delivered a very interactive lecture on ‘The media and English language’. Finally, a lecture on ‘The science of debating’ was delivered by Corps member Martin Chisom Ojukwu. Questions abound, expectedly, and were adequately treated.
The program ended with the announcement of the names of nine finalists based on the essay competition results, who would advance into the finals. The nine students were split into three groups and intimated on the modus operandi of the debate. The final debates will take place towards the end of November.
This project is in line with the objectives of the NYSC programme which includes inculcating discipline in Nigerian youths by instilling in them a tradition of industry at work, and of patriotic and loyal service to Nigeria in any situation they may find themselves and to contribute to the accelerated growth of the national economy.
