The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has moved all corps members proposed to serve in Anambra State to Ebonyi and Imo states. The corps members were distributed to the neighbouring states because Anambra could not provide adequate camping facilities.
Kehinde Aremu, Coordinator of NYSC in Anambra, said at closing of camp for 2018 Batch C orientation exercise in Umunya Temporary Orientation Camp on Monday. According to him, Anambra was the only state in the South-East geopolitical zone that did not have permanent orientation site.
He said the present site which was owned by the Anglican Church had become grossly inadequate considering the number of prospective corps members posted to the state.
“Sadly, corps members deployed to Anambra will be holding their orientation course in Imo, earlier this year, Anambra corps members were dislodged to Ebonyi and Imo states.
I wish to seize this opportunity to appeal to the vibrant private sector in Anambra to complement the efforts of the state government towards delivering the orientation camp in Umuawulu/Mbaukwu for 2019 Batch A,’’ he said.
Aremu said the posting of the corps members was guided by the scheme’s policy and requests from deserving employers which fitted into the human capital development strategy of the state government.
