NYSC to re-open orientation camps in Adamawa, Borno, Yobe, says DG

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)

    “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.”
    FOUL! Adamawa State uses a disused brewery as orientation camp. Corpers had to bathe in the open before 5am and do “short put” method to defeacate. The place was converted to IDP camp for victims of Boko Haram. Conversely, the former gov of Adamawa converted half of the structure to a farm school and renovated it to taste, leaving the other half for corpers to suffer. Story had it that he never liked education and wanted corpers to suffer. He rarely attended events at the camp. Unless the new gov, Bindow, does something to lift the place, it will continue to be a dent on the name of the state.

    Mr. Olawumi should lead by example. He should sent his own son and daughter to the war zone. Heartless people.

    Olawumi should provide those facilities in all camps. It’s too risky right now. Orientation camp has no direct benefit to the states.
