The Minister of FCT, Mohammad Bello, on Friday inaugurated a 700-capacity hostel at the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) permanent orientation camp, Kubwa, Abuja.

The minister inaugurated the facility at the Opening Ceremony of the 2019 Batch ‘A’ set of corps members posted to the FCT for the one-year mandatory national youth service.

Mr Bello, who was represented by Safiya Umar, Director, Administration and Finance, FCT Administration, said the administration has also allocated the corps’ FCT Secretariat an office complex in Maitama.

The minister, who assured that the administration would continue to remain a dependable partner of the scheme, urged camp officials to ensure a hitch-free and successful orientation.

“I must advise all operatives to be professional in the discharge of their duties especially in the handling of corps members, protection of lives and property within and around the camp.

“I expect a resolute synergy and an intrinsic relationship between all camp officials to ensure a hitch-free and successful orientation exercise.

“The FCTA remains a dependable partner to the NYSC and in furtherance of our commitment, we have allocated the NYSC FCT Secterariate a befitting office complex at Maitama, Abuja.

“I am reliably informed that the management has taken possession of the new complex cutting short their temporary use of the Kubwa camp secretariat.

“I urge all corps members to continue to stay out of crime, illicit and alcoholic beverages. Ensure you marry your deeds and choices to reflect the tenets of the oath of allegiance you subscribe to today.

“I charge you to be passionate about the Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) Programme of the scheme during your orientation as your future is created by what you do today,” the minister said.
