The commendation was made on Wednesday by the NYSC Director-General, Brigadier General Sulaiman Kazaure at the opening of the 2016 Batch ‘B’ Pre-Orientation workshop in Calabar, Cross River State.

According to the DG, the gesture will allow Bauchi, Gombe and Taraba states to hosts two camps simultaneously – one for corps members deployed to them, and the other for Corps members deployed to Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states respectively.

Kazaure added that as for Zamfara State, both the permanent orientation camp and the additional camp will host corps members deployed to the state because the number of corps members is above the capacity of the permanent one.

The NYSC Boss also stressed the need for the three tiers of governments to live up to their statutory roles in the operations of the scheme, as a panacea for addressing the challenges of obsolete, dilapidated and inadequate state of facilities in most orientation camps.

He said: “We are encouraged, however, by the efforts of the Federal Government at providing funds in spite of obvious financial constraints. In particular, I wish to thank Mr. President for making it possible for all graduates to be mobilised for service in 2016.”

The DG said the current management of the scheme was encouraging public-private partnership to complement the efforts of federal and state governments, towards enhancing all aspects of its operations.
