According to the News Agency of Nigeria, the Delta State Government has said that it will construct new hostels and renovate the existing structures at the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) permanent orientation camp in the state.
The Executive Governor of the state, Ifeanyi Okowa disclosed this on Thursday during a facility tour at the NYSC camp in Isele-Uku, Aniocha North Local Government Area of the state.
“I need to turn this place around urgently and within six month because corps members make a lot of inputs into the developments of the state,” he said.
Earlier, the NYSC State Coordinator, Mr. Benjamin Omotade had lamented about the security challenges posed by the non-availability of perimeter fence round the camp. He said that the hostels were crying for serious attention as corps members needed a conducive environment due to their regimented life on camp.
The state director appealed to the state government not to relent in its commitments to the activities of the corps. He also noted that the next orientation in camp would begin on Nov. 19 and end on Dec. 5, pointing out that there would be no camping until after the 2019 general elections.
