Bauchi

Bauchi state Governor, Mohammed Abubakar, has advised corps members to involve themselves in inter-ethnic marriages as a way of promoting unity and national integration.
Speaking yesterday during the swearing-in ceremony of the 2017 Batch ‘B’ Stream I corps members posted to the state, the governor, represented by the Head of Service, Liman Bello, said NYSC had over the years been a major platform for effective utilisation of youth’s resources for national development.
“Indeed, it has remained a melting pot for harnessing the socio-economic and cultural endowments of our youths thereby enhancing our collective efforts at national integration and development. It is, therefore, expected that as leaders of tomorrow, you would work hard towards realising the lofty ideals of the founding fathers of the scheme by breaking language barriers, involving yourselves in inter-ethnic marriages and getting accustomed to the norms, values and traditions of your host communities,” he said.
He expressed government’s commitment to supporting the scheme and the corps members serving in the state, adding that a contract for the construction of a 5,000-seater capacity multi-purpose hall at the NYSC orientation camp would “soon be awarded by the government with a view to creating an enabling atmosphere for them.”
Also speaking, the state NYSC Coordinator, Mr. Afolayan James, explained that a total number of 2, 084 corps members, out of which 1,091 were males and 993 females, were deployed to the state.
According to him, NYSC has fashioned out comprehensive and all encompassing training module for the three-week orientation course which would prepare the corps members adequately for the demands and challenges of the service year.
He also appealed to the state government to repair the vandalised electricity cables linking the camp to the national grid.
