NYSC tasks states on maintenance of camp facilities

The National Youth Service Corps has charged all state gov­ernments to play their own roles in sustaining the prog­ress of the scheme by being responsive to their statu­tory obligations towards the scheme.
The corps called on the state to protect the facilities to be used by corps mem­bers, stressing that the pro­vision and maintenance of camp facilities are the responsibilities of state gov­ernments.
The Director General of the NYSC, Brigadier Gener­al Suleiman Kazaure, made the call at the 2017 Batch ‘A’ Pre-Orientation Workshop in Bauchi, with the theme: “Evolving strategies to meet the challenge of increasing corps population.”
He noted that each ori­entation exercise has its unique challenges due to so­cietal changes and emerging trends. He added that the growth of the scheme from its annual output of 2,364 graduates in 1973 to the cur­rent figure of over 300,000 per year is the biggest devel­opment in the history of the scheme.
