The Governor, in his speech, welcomed the corps members and urged them to individually and collectively make positive impacts on the lives of their host communities.

“The success or otherwise of your service is to a large extent dependent on the foundation laid during the orientation course, and is designed to prepare you for challenges you may face during the service year and beyond.

“I implore you to actively participate in all camp activities so as to adequately equip yourselves for challenges ahead. I have no doubt that you will have a rich and rewarding experience in your own time, blending and learning from your host communities where you will be assigned within the State. Feel free and integrate with them and participate actively in their developmental efforts,” he said.

He assured the corps members that the state government is committed to supporting the NYSC in the state and as such will continue to ensure that necessary appropriations are made to sustain the gains of the scheme and also provide for the welfare and secondary needs of all corps members deployed to the state.
