The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has raised concerns about the poor condition of the orientation camp in Niger State.
This was expressed by NYSC Coordinator in the state, Abdulwahab Alidat, during the swearing-in of the 2023 Batch “A” Stream II corps members at the NYSC orientation camp in Paiko Local Government Area of the state.
According to Alidat, the state of the camp has been a great source of concern to all, calling on the state government to prioritise the urgent development of the permanent orientation camp.
“This will enable us to have a befitting environment conducive to carry out our activities,” she said.
The State Coordinator noted that 1,530 corps members had been registered for the orientation course comprising 1,066 for Niger and 464 dislodged from the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
She further commended the state Governor, Abubakar Sani-Bello for his commitment towards the realising the objectives of the scheme.
In his remark, Sani-Bello urged the corps members to avoid engaging in activities that could be easily hijacked by miscreants.
The Governor who was represented by Alhaji Ahmed Matane, the Secretary to the Niger Government and Chairman of the NYSC Governing Board, encouraged the corps members enthusiastically engage in issues of nation-building and national unity.
He further noted that the state government was aware of the condition of the camp, revealing that there are provisions to work on some of the camp's structures in the 2023 budget.
The Commissioner of Police in Niger, Ogundele Ayodeji, in an interview, said: “There is no need to entertain any fear, Niger is very safe as we have provided enough security to make sure our children are safe as the state is relatively peaceful.”
