FG To Upgrade NYSC Orientation Camps Nationwide, Says Dare

Must read

The Federal Government has expressed its commitment to upgrade all the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) orientation camps across the country to accommodate the rising population of graduates enrolling for the scheme.

Minister of Youth and Sports, Sunday Dare, said this yesterday during the commissioning of the NYSC permanent orientation camp built by the Bayelsa State Government at Boro Town in Kaiama, Kolokuma/Opokuma Local Government Area.

He appealed to the state government to take proactive steps in providing facilities in the camps to accommodate at least 5000 corps members.

Represented by the Director General of NYSC, Brigadier General Yusha’u Ahmed, the minister commended the Bayelsa State government for providing a conducive edifice for the training of corps members 26 years after the creation of the state.

He said the facility will not only enhance smooth conduct of the orientation courses, but also serve as a morale booster to corps members and officials of the camp.

While commissioning the permanent orientation camp, Governor Douye Diri said that the idea of the permanent orientation camp in the state started when he served as Commissioner for Youths and Sports under the then Governor Goodluck Jonathan, when NYSC was using a secondary school facility then for their camping.

He said the increase in the number of corps members posted to the state also accelerated government’s plan to complete the edifice for the comfort of Nigerian youths posted to the state to serve their fatherland.
