The National Youth Service Corps has appealed to state governments to ensure continuous upgrades of orientation camp facilities and other logistic provisions.
The Director-General of NYSC, Brigadier-General Mohammed Fadah, made the plea in Abuja, on Wednesday during the 2022 Batch ‘C’ pre-orientation workshop with the theme, “Exploring effective stakeholders collaboration for an improved orientation programme.”
The workshop was a forum for the NYSC top management, partner agencies and key camp officials to review the conduct of previous orientation courses to map out strategies for improved performance as it prepares for the next exercise.
Fadah said the forum would help to fine-tune its arrangements and policy guidelines for the seamless execution of the exercise.
He said, “I wish to express our profound gratitude to the Federal Government for its abiding faith in the Scheme as demonstrated through the constant provision of funds for the smooth conduct of our operations.
“We also thank state governments for their support, and appeal for more, especially through the continuous upgrade of orientation camp facilities and other logistic provisions. In the same vein, I thank the FCT administration, traditional rulers, security agencies and other stakeholders in the territory for their immense support.”
The NYSC DG expressed appreciation to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control and State Ministries of Health for their immense contributions, which assisted in the safe and efficient conduct of its orientation courses in the heat of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Alhaji Mohammed Bello, represented by Musa Lai, assured that his administration would continue to partner with the NYSC for the successful implementation of its lofty programmes.
“I, therefore, urge all participants to contribute meaningfully to outcomes to achieve the desired result,” he said.
