NYSC: 2,100 Corps Members Commence Orientation Course in Kwara


A total of 2, 100 National Youth Service Corps members have begun the 2018 Batch C orientation course at its Permanent Orientation Camp located at Yikpata, Edu Local Government Area of Kwara State.

Mrs Esther Ikupolati, NYSC’s State Coordinator, made this disclosure in a statement by the Assistant Director, Public Relations, Dipo Morakinyo, who is also the Camp Director on Friday in Ilorin.

According to Mrs. Esther Ikupolati, Kwara State was one of the 27 states set aside by the NYSC management to host the second stream of the 2018 batch C orientation course.

She said the three-week orientation exercise, which commenced on Thursday, November 15 would end on December 5.

The State Co-ordinated added that 300 camp officials were already deployed to train corps members on physical fitness, drilling and entrepreneurial and skill acquisition.

Mrs. Ikupolati added that the orientation course would be officially declared opened on Monday, November 19 with the swearing-in of the new corps members.

She expressed the eagerness of the scheme to host the corps members and make their time during the orientation course unforgettable.

According to Ikupolati, the recently renovated and upgraded camp facilities are some of the factors that earned Kwara State the hosting right.

“You may recall that the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, personally renovated four female hostels alongside two others renovated by the state secretariat.

“The perennial water shortage on Yikpata camp is fast becoming a thing of the past, as the NYSC Director-General recently constructed a high yielding industrial borehole,” she added.
