The outgoing Governor of Plateau state, Jonah Jang, Monday, formally commissioned the state’s National Youth Service Corps orientation camp and dedicated it to Yakubu Gowon.
Mr. Gowon, a former military Head of State, is the founder of NYSC.
Governor Jang dedicated the permanent orientation camp as part of activities marking his exit as governor of the state. He appealed to beneficiaries to safeguard the facilities.
The camp that was newly commissioned has been in existence for two years and has hosted four batches of youth service members.
The governor said the NYSC scheme has helped unite young Nigerians and made them appreciate the diversity of Nigerian cultures.
The Commissioner for Urban Development, Sylvanus Dongtoe, said the camp was built at the cost of 2.9 billion Naira and has reached 95 percent completion stage.
Governor Jang also commissioned two roads of about 90 kilometres that links northern, central and southern zone of Plateau state. The roads were constructed at the cost of N8 billion.
The Commissioner for Works, Gyang Tanko, said with the completion of the roads, there will be fewer road accidents.
