Poor State Of Ebonyi Orientation Camp Worries NYSC
The National Youth Service Corps, NYSC orientation camp in Ebonyi State is in a sorry state.
The Director General of the NYSC, Brigadier General Brig.-Gen. Suleiman Kazaure is not happy about it.
In fact, the permanent orientation camp in Afikpo is in such a poor shape that Kazaure described it as deplorable after inspecting the camp’s facilities during a visit to the 2018 Batch “A’’ corps members.
While noting that the camp was old and in need of total overhaul, the DG urged the state government to help in renovating the camp.

“We are appealing to the state government to look into the state of facilities in the camp as it is the responsibility of state governments to maintain NYSC orientation camps in their states,” Kazaure said.
The NYSC State Director, Mrs. Regina Iluebbey, thanked Kazaure for the visit, noting that it was not all corps members that have the privilege of meeting the NYSC DG during their service years.
The NYSC DG also noted disclosed during the visit that, “Corps members would not be posted to areas such as communities in Benue, Taraba and Nasarawa States because of the security situation in those places”.
