NYSC: Anambra Corps Members Relocated Over Lack of Facilities


Prospective Youth corps members, who were posted to Anambra state for their national service were relocated to Ebonyi and Imo states due to lack of adequate camping facilities.

The Coordinator of the National Youths Service Corps (NYSC), Anambra, Mr Kehinde Aremu), made this revelation during the closing of camp for 2018 Batch C orientation exercise in Umunya Temporary Orientation Camp on Monday, 12, 2018.

Aremu added that Anambra was the only state in the South-East geopolitical zone without a permanent orientation site.

He further said the present site which was owned by the Anglican Church had become grossly inadequate considering the huge number of prospective corps members posted to the state.

“Sadly, corps members deployed to Anambra will be holding their orientation course in Imo, earlier this year, Anambra corps members were dislodged to Ebonyi and Imo states.

“This is because Anambra is the only state in South-East of Nigeria without a permanent orientation camp.

“I wish to seize this opportunity to appeal to the vibrant private sector in Anambra to complement the efforts of the state government towards delivering the orientation camp in Umuawulu/Mbaukwu for 2019 Batch A,’’ he said.

Mr. Aremu added that the posting of the corps members was guided by the scheme’s policy and requests from eligible employers which fitted into the human capital development strategy of the state government.

He revealed that the corps members had been trained with fitness drills and entrepreneurial skills and also the ways and culture of the host people to enable them contribute maximally to the communities they were posted for primary assignment.
