The National Youths Service Corps (NYSC) has sworn in 1,544 corps members of the 2023 Batch ‘C’ Stream one set, deployed to Enugu State for the one-year mandatory national service.
The state Coordinator, NYSC, Mrs. Gladys Adama, disclosed this on Tuesday during the swearing-in ceremony at the NYSC Orientation Camp, Awgu Local Government Area in Enugu State.
Adama said that the corps members comprised 812 males and 732 females.
She said that the skill acquisition and entrepreneurship development had been reviewed in order to equip corps members with the requisite skill to excel in the ever changing and competitive digital economic environment.
She commended Gov. Peter Mbah for his magnanimous steps taken to revamp the orientation camp.
According to her, the government of Enugu State has commenced the renovation of the camp, all the toilets in the hostels have been changed.
“Most of the toilets and bathrooms have been tiled while painting and re-roofing of some buildings are ongoing,” she said.
The coordinator called on governor Mbah’s attention to the road leading to the orientation camp as it needs urgent repair.
“I wish to also remind your excellency that the road to the camp is in a deplorable state, movement in and out of the camp is becoming very challenging as vehicles find it difficult to ascend to the camp, please come to our aid,” she pleaded.
In his welcome address, Mbah represented by the state Commissioner for Youths and Sports, Mr Lloyd Ekweremadu urged the corps members to draw maximum benefits from the skill acquisition training in order to be equipped for self employment after service.
He assured them that their welfare was already receiving priority by the state government, adding that the allowances of corps members were paid as at and when due.
He urged the corps members to always obey camp rules and regulations so that they would have a peaceful and successful orientation course.
The governor commended the state coordinator for her passion towards the development of NYSC in all ramifications.
“It is her enthusiasm that has moved my government to sink a second borehole in order to provide adequate water supply in the camp,” Mbah said.
Administering the oath of allegiance to the corps members earlier, the Enugu State Chief Judge, Justice Raymond Ozoemena, who was represented by Justice Anthony Onovo, said it was an oath to serve the country, which is by law mandatory.
Ozoemena added that it was a legacy, which the country had left for its citizens to go to other parts of the country to see various parts that made up the country.
“One thing is that the one year mandatory NYSC programme opens your minds to what the world is, to see what you are not used to see in your own environment.
“It opens your minds to various things you m heay not have thought as people’s ways of life,” he said.
