Anambra Corpers Move To New Permanent NYSC Orientation Camp In Awka



Awka, Nov. 9, 2019 (MOI) Anambra State National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), has finally started operating from its permanent Orientation Camping site at Mbaukwu/Umuawulu, Awka South Local Government Area (LGA).

The movement, which had been delayed for many years, followed the noncompletion of the site.

However, the latest move to the new site was effected soon after most of the basic installations were completed.

Gov. Willie Obiano said that the camp would be fully developed after landscaping and internal roads network would have been completed for another batch this December.

Obiano said this while addressing corps members at the new site during swearing-in of the 2019 Batch `C’ Stream 1 corps members.

The governor was represented by Commissioner for Youth Empowerment and Creative Economy, Mr Afam Mbanefo.

He noted that over the years, the scheme had been using the Progressive Senior Secondary School, Umunya, Oyi Local Government Area (LGA) as its temporary camping site.

According to the Governor the scheme has been an avenue for harnessing and mobilising the creative and productive energies of the youths of Nigeria for National development.

“Today, the scheme has lived up to its mandate as envisioned by the founding fathers, 47 years ago, by impacting positively on National development process.

“This can be seen in the education sector, healthcare delivery, rural infrastructure development as well as in the agricultural sector,’’ Gov. Obiano affirmed.

The governor, then, urged corps members to align positively with constructive developmental initiatives of the present administration in the state and the host communities.
