As quoted by The Nation, he said:

“I urge you to respect the culture and traditions of your host community. Remain peaceful and resilient as you add value to the community you’re posted to. I’m sure many of you will choose to remain here after your service.
“Also take your security seriously. Take time to read the instructions in your manual and abide by them accordingly. Your security is our concern, but no one can secure you more than yourself.”

Highlighting the significance of acquiring skills and fostering entrepreneurial spirit within the Scheme, Ahmed encouraged corps members to utilize the opportunity to achieve self-sufficiency and emerge as creators of employment and wealth following their service year.

He said:

“Skills acquisition is designed to make you independent, self reliance and productive. Federal government is out to ensure youths are supported and empowered so they can stand on their own.
