The National Youth Service Corps will re-open orientation camps in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe states before the end of 2016, the Director-General (DG), Johnson Olawumi, has said.
Mr. Olawumi, a Brigadier General, told journalists on Thursday in Katsina that the decision followed the successes recorded in the fight against insurgency in the north eastern part of the country.
‘’Since the insurgency has been reduced drastically, we are resuming orientation in Gombe state beginning with this batch ‘A’ of 2016.
‘’Adamawa state will resume with the next batch, while Borno and Yobe orientation camps will be re-opened before the end of the year,’’ he said.
Mr. Olawumi said the states had some of the best facilities for orientation in the country, but had to be closed down due to insecurity.
He advised corps members to discharge their duties at their places of primary assignment diligently.
The DG called on state governments to ensure prompt payment of allowances to corps members to boost their morale for effective service delivery. (NAN)
