Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has reiterated his commitments towards ensuring adequate security and provision of accommodation for corps members posted to the state.
The governor gave the assurance at the closing ceremony of the 2019 Batch ‘C’ stream ll orientation course at the NYSC orientation camp at Kusalla in Karaye Local Government Area of Kano.
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Ganduje was represented by the permanent Secretary, Kano State Ministry of Youth and Social Development, Alhaji Ibrahim Ahmed Sagagi.
The governor said that his administration was concern on how to ensure that the scheme works towards achieving the objectives of the NYSC in the state.
He added that the scheme had played a vital role in promoting peace, coorporation and National unity in the last 46 years.
“My administration has taken note of all the challenges the scheme is facing in the state, especially in terms of providing operational facilities, security, safety and welfare of the corps members,” he said.
Ganduje, however, charged the Corp members to accept their postings in good faith and settle down to work towards achieving the stated goals.
Earlier, the state NYSC Coordinator, Malam Ladan Baba said that the corps members were trained on various skill acquisition programmes during the three weeks orientation course.
According to him, the aim of the skill acquisition training was to make corps members self reliant and also to train other residents of their host communities and even beyond.
Baba explained that in order to meaningfully contribute to the lives of the people of the state, the Corp members were expected to make contributions in the agriculture, infrastructure, health and educational sectors among other key areas.
