Nasarawa State Lauds Corps Members Contributions To Health, Education, And Rural Development


Nasarawa State Government has commended the contributions of Corps Members to the development of the rural infrastructure, education, and health sectors of the State.

It said the NYSC Scheme has shown remarkable resilience in the face of various economic challenges.

Nasarawa State Governor, Engr. Abdullahi Sule stated this on Tuesday while declaring open the 2021 Batch ‘A’ Pre-Mobilization Workshop with the theme; “Enhancing the NYSC Mobilization Process in the face of Contemporary Challenges”, which was held at Global Village Suites and Conference Centre, Mararaba.

Represented at the workshop by Chairman, NYSC Nasarawa State Governing Board and Commissioner for Youth and Sports, Othman Bala Adam, the Governor added that the NYSC Scheme remains the formidable platform for fostering the unity and development of the country.

“The Contributions of Corps Members to the development of our dear state especially in the areas of education, health and rural infrastructure have made the scheme endearing”.

“NYSC will continue to be role model for other agencies in programme planning and implementation”.

He urged all stakeholders at the workshop to map out strategies for the success of the 2021 Batch ‘A’ Mobilization Exercise.

Governor Sule further pledged to upgrade camp facilities in the state, as well as provide welfare needs of all Corps Members within the limit of available resources of his administration.

NYSC Director-General, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim in his welcome address said the workshop aimed to strengthen inter-agency collaborations for the success of the NYSC mobilization process.

He said the Scheme is committed to tackling issues that tend to undermine its mobilization exercise.

‘While we unveil policy guidelines for the 2021 mobilization, stakeholders gathered here will review issues in past exercises to address identified challenges, and evolving strategies for improvement”.

“I wish to reaffirm the commitment of Management to enhancing the credibility of the Mobilisation process”, he said.

Ibrahim said the Scheme would continue to apply fool-proof measures to ensure that only qualified graduates are enlisted for National Service, warning that unqualified persons that attempt to present themselves for Mobilization would be apprehended and prosecuted by the law enforcement agencies.

He commended the Federal Government for approving the 2020 Batch ‘B’ Orientation Course having been satisfied with the safety measures put in place by the NYSC with the guidance and support of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control.

In his goodwill message, JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede appealed to all stakeholders in the NYSC Mobilization process especially the Student Affairs Officers of Corps Producing Institutions to perform their roles with high integrity.

NYSC Director of Corps Mobilization, Mrs Victoria Ango in her address urged the participants to utilize the workshop as a gateway for data harvest to offer the NYSC Scheme the desired opportunity to review its operations for more rewarding performances.
