The government of Adamawa state under the leadership of the Executive Governor, His Excellency, Senator Bindow Jibrilla has given five cows and fifty bags of rice to Corps members as welcome package.
Announcing the donation in his speech to declare open the 2018 Batch B Orientation course at Damare Camp today, the governor said his administration will continue to maintain and upgrade facilities at the Camp to ensure a befitting camping environment for Corps members.
Governor Bindow equally laid emphasis on his readiness to do everything possible to ensure tranquility returns to every part of the state, so that people will go about carrying out their duties freely.
Earlier, the NYSC State Coordinator, Mallam Abubakar Mohammed reported that the Corps members have been of good conduct since they entered the Camp two days back.
Muhammad specifically enjoined them to shun cultism, drug abuse, drunkenness, religious bigotry and sexual harassment, among others.
“I must state categorically that we don’t condone tendencies such as cultism, drugs abuse, drunkenness, religious bigotry and sexual harassment and the like in the NYSC.ADVERTISEMENT
“Anyone caught indulging in such vices will face the full wrath of the law,” the coordinator warned.
However, he advised the corps members to interact with one another freely during the period of the orientation so as to enhance their mutual understanding in terms of their cultures and religious beliefs.
Represented by the Chairman of State Economic Planning Commission, Mr. Ari Lutu, the governor noted that the scheme was one of enduring programmes of the Federal Government that have instilled a spirit of patriotism and nationalism in Nigerian youths.
“It is no longer news that this programme has sustained high reputation since its establishment 45 years ago.
“I can unequivocally state that it is one of the very few programmes of the Federal Government which will ever retain its relevance.ADVERTISEMENT
“NYSC is the main reason that Nigeria still remains solidly indivisible and firmly integrated,’’ Bindow said.
He also commented the officials drafted to work at the Camp for their loyalty and dedication to duty.Do you ever witness news, videos, articles, or photos that you believe it's good and rich for our blog?, or do you have a true life story that you would want us to feature on our blog; Adamawa Celebrities News?
