“I wish to solicit for the cooperation of all camp officials and all corps members towards ensuring a hitch-free orientation exercise,” the Coordinator added.

The governor was represented by the Head of Service, Mrs Susan Oluwole.

Ahmed congratulated the corps members on their successful completion of their studies from their various institutions of learning.

He said that the government would continue to support the activities of the NYSC.

“Let me say at this juncture that, the Government is not unaware of the not-too-conducive conditions of our orientation camp.

“However, the good news is that concerted efforts are being made to improve on the existing camp facilities.

“The government is not folding its arms in this direction especially the corps members, so bear with us for now, as the current situation of the camp will soon be a thing of the past,” Ahmed added.

Chairman of Edu Local Government donated a cow and ten mattresses to the Corps members while the Head of Service, Mrs Oluwole gave the Coordinator money to buy another cow for the corps members.
