GOV. Willie Obiano of Anambra State has re-assured National Youth Service Corps members serving in the state that their safety and wellbeing will always be a priority to him.

Gov. Obiano made this assurance during the swearing-in-ceremony of the 2020 Batch ‘B’ (Stream 1) Orientation course held at the NYSC Orientation Camp, Umuawulu/Mbaukwu.

The governor, who was represented by the Secretary to the State Government, SSG, Prof. Solo Chukwulobelu, commended the efforts and contributions of the corps members in the fight against COVID-19 scourge.

He pointed out that the corps members used their creative abilities and the training they acquired in the production and donation of Personal Protective Equipment, PPE, to the state government.

Their donation of PPE, which was a demonstration of their love and devotion to their duties, complimented the state government’s efforts in the fight against COVID-19 pandemic.

Gov. Obiano, then, admonished the new members to exhibit good conduct in order to be distinguished.

He said that the government had always rewarded and would continue to reward best behaved and distinguished corps members in the state.

He demonstrated his interest in the welfare of the members by subsidising their feeding with ₦10 million to ensure that they would be well fed during the orientation course.

The Chairman, NYSC Governing Board in Anambra State, Prof. Theresa Nkechi Obiekezie, urged the corps members to diligently participate in the Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development, SAED, programme.

According to her, your participation in the programme will help you to achieve self- reliance and self-sufficiency after the service.

Prof Obiekezie, on behalf of the board and the NYSC family, showed appreciation to the government for its support as well as the building of a befitting orientation camp.

Anambra NYSC Coordinator, Kehinde Aremu, assured that the corps members would continue to channel their physical and intellectual resources in complementing Gov. Obiano’s efforts in the improvement of the state’s Education and Health sectors.
