The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), has said it will re-open its orientation camp in Maiduguri soon. Director-General of NYSC, Suleiman Kazaure, stated this while speaking with journalists in Maiduguri. He said they were considering the idea since peace had returned to the state, which was one of Boko Haram’s major target.
“There is relative peace now in the state, so we will like to come back as soon as possible. Remember, the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) are still occupying the Orientation Camp,” he said. Kazaure said the camp would be re-opened once the IDPs were evacuated from it. “It is only in Borno that our corps members have yet to have their orientation camp in place. We are ready to start our orientation the moment the State Government releases our camp to us,” he said.
Kazaure also thanked the Borno State government for providing enhanced welfare and security for the corps members. “I am happy that the state government has been assisting in ensuring the welfare of the corps members. “I thank Gov. Kashim Shettima for that and implore other states to emulate the gesture by ensuring adequate welfare for corps members serving in their localities,” he said.
