ONITSHA, Anambra – A total of five hundred and seventeen (517 corps) members deployed to Delta state have been dislodged to Anambra State for the orientation camp.
The Anambra state coordinator of the National Youth Service Corps NYSC Mrs Blessing Ekene Aruma disclosed this at the swearing in ceremony of 2022 Batch ‘C’ Stream 11 orientation camp held on Tuesday at the state NYSC permanent Umuawulu/Mbaukwu Awka South Local Government Council of Anambra State.
“About 500 prospective Corps members deployed to serve in Delta state were dislodged to hold their orientation course here in Anambra state” she said .
According to her, the dislodgement was due to the engagement of the Delta state orientation camp for national sport festival holding in the state.
She said the Delta state orientation camp was one of the place designated for the camping of sports men and women in the ongoing national sports festival holding in the state.
“Delta camp isn’t readily available because of the ongoing national sports festival in the state. Others are deployed to Rivers and Edo; but they will return to their various states of deployment after the camp.” she said .
She said that after the orientation, the corps members will go back to Delta state to service in their respective primary areas.
However, she said that a total of 1640 corps members both from Anambra and Delta state were deployed for swearing in, for the 2022 Batch “C” Stream 2 orientation course in Anambra State.
While congratulating the corps members on successful completion of their students which qualified them for the national service, Iruma urged them to quickly adapt to the regimented programme, and utilize the time to contribute their quota for the development of the state, especially the education sector.
“NYSC will continue to support the government in ensuring manpower deployment for health care delivery to the rural areas where they are needed and agricultural extension work to boost food production,” she added.
