The Governor of Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed, has assured Corp Members of his administration’s resolve to renovate the structures and improve facilities at the National Youth Service Corp Orientation Camp in Wailo, Ganjuwa Local Government Area of the State into a world-class centre.
He disclosed this in his speech at the closing ceremony of the 2023 Batch ‘C’ Stream II orientation course which was held on Thursday at Wailo.
The Governor, who was represented by his Deputy, Auwal Jatau, said that the move by his administration was part of his genuine commitment to ensuring the welfare and well-being of the corps members, by providing them with a conducive environment for orientation programmes.
Mohammed who said that with the orientation course, the corps members have been adequately prepared for the challenges of national service, urged them to ensure the realisation of the objectives of the scheme so that the vision of its founding fathers for a united, developed, and egalitarian society will be continuously realised.
He noted that the various skill acquisition programmes they have been exposed to during the orientation exercise are designed to make them creators rather than job seekers.
He, therefore, enjoined them to take the skills to their various places of primary assignment and perfect them within the period of the national service to be self-employed.
The governor assured the corps members that their service year experience in Bauchi state will be a pleasant and memorable one as the state government in line with its focus on youth development, has put in place fool-proof arrangements for their welfare and security.
He said: “I would like to first express the deepest appreciation of the Government and the people of Bauchi state to the corps members for your tremendous resilience and determination despite the dilapidated structures, you have strived to complete your training program with unwavering patriotism and enthusiasm. This is a testament to your character and commitment to national service.
“Precisely three weeks ago when you reported for the orientation, some of you were apprehensive because you were coming to Bauchi State for the first time. However, having undergone the orientation segment of the National Service, I believe you have discovered that those fears are unfounded as they are based on mere speculations and sentiments.
“Our people in all parts of the State are also eager to receive you. I, therefore, encourage you to settle down quickly in your different places of primary assignment, make positive contributions to society, and savour the hospitality of our people.”
Mohammed, while commending the efforts of the NYSC for its positive contributions to the development of the state, appreciated all the camp officials for their diligence and sense of duty which resulted in the success of the orientation exercise.
Also speaking, the Commissioner of Youth and Sports in the State, Salees Gamawa, urged the corps members to reciprocate the state government’s investment in their welfare and wellbeing by supporting it in the implementation of developmental policies and programmes for the benefit of all citizens.
Earlier in her welcome address, the NYSC State Coordinator, Rifkatu Yakubu, said the corps members exhibited a high sense of maturity throughout the orientation course and expressed gratitude to Governor Bala Mohammed for prioritising the welfare and wellbeing of the corps members.
