Fayemi Lifts Ekiti NYSC Camp



One thousand, eight hundred and fifty four corps members posted to Ekiti State for the one year mandatory service year on Monday began their orientation with a promise by the state government to improve camp condition and pay the outstanding backlogs of allowances owed corps members.

The governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi, represented by his deputy, Chief Bisi Egbeyemi, also displayed a positive disposition to the National Youth Service Corps with a supplementary financial provision of N1.5 million to Stream 1, and promised to address critical areas with a view to improving the condition of the camp.

Fayemi restated the commitment of his administration to harness the inherent strength, potentials, intelligence and can-do spirit in the youths of the nation for the growth and development in the state.

Fayemi spoke at the NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp, Ise/Orun/Emure, during the official opening and swearing-in ceremony of the 2018 batch ‘C’ Stream II Corps members deployed to Ekiti and Kogi states.

A statement on Monday by the Special Assistant (Media) to the Deputy Governor, Odunayo Ogunmola, explained that the oath of allegiance was administered on the new corps members by the Chief Judge, Justice Ayodeji Daramola, who was represented by Justice Abiodun Adesodun.

The governor, who had earlier laid a foundation for the building of a staff hostel, charged the corps members to embrace the various trainings they would be exposed to, stressing that knowledge without skill was no longer sufficient for today’s economy as entrepreneurs now rule the world.

He counselled them to shun unauthorised trips as such a violation had accounted for a high number of casualties that brought untold misery to many parents and wards in the past.
