The Director-General of the National Youth Service Scheme Brigadier-General Shuaibu Ibrahim, yesterday renewed his appeal to state governments to provide permanent orientation camps and upgrade the facilities.

In his welcome address at the opening ceremony of the 2019 Batch ‘B’ Pre-Orientation Course workshop in Lagos, Ibrahim decried the dilapidated condition of many orientation camps.

The pre-orientation workshop themed, ‘Reinvigorating the NYSC Orientation Course for a Successful Service Year’ is a forum for the NYSC managers and collaborating partners to review previous orientation courses with a view to tackling identified challenges and mapping out new strategies for successful conduct of the forthcoming course.

Declaring the workshop open, Lagos State Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu said the successful participation of the NYSC in the 2019 general elections had further attested to the contemporary relevance of the scheme in the development of the nation.

Sanwo-Olu, represented by his deputy, Obafemi Hamzat, said his administration would continue to support the scheme in ensuring a conducive environment for the NYSC to achieve its noble objective.

The governor said: “We will deepen the existing partnership between NYSC and the Lagos state government especially in the areas of Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) trainings as well as empowerment for self-employment.”
