Ahead of planned nationwide re-opening of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Orientation Camps, Anambra State Government has pledged to provide adequate support services to guarantee the safe resumption of camping activities.

The State Commissioner for Youth Empowerment and Creative Economy, Prof Theresa Obiekezie said this yesterday, while receiving a delegation of NYSC led by its Director, South East Area Office, Alhaji Ahmed Ikaka.

The commissioner assured of the government’s commitment to put the state orientation camp in good condition for the incoming corps members posted to the state.

She added that the state government through her ministry would sustain the safety of corps members, even as those who served in the state felt at home and wanted to stay back.

According to Obiekezie, the government has been supporting the scheme to enable it to fully actualise the objective of youth development, capacity building and value re-orientation

She said that the working relationship between the state government and the scheme would be strengthened so as to impact the lives of corps members

Earlier, the Director, South East Area Office of NYSC, Alhaji Ikaka, underscored the importance of creating an enabling and safe environment for the members

While praising the state government for the provision of infrastructure, he requested for construction of more hostels as well as quarters for its staff members

He noted that the state had in the past, one of the worst orientation camps in the nation, but presently under the watch of the present administration, they never had it so good

The director observed that the scheme had been generating manpower especially, in secondary schools across the nation, even as corps members were fully engaged in the fight against COVID-19 pandemic

We collaborated with NCDC in many areas. Some corps members produced sanitisers and hand washing equipment that are helpful against COVID-19 pandemic,’’ Alhaji Ikaka stated
