Zamfara NYSC urges renovation of camp facilities destroyed by rainstorm

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has appealed to Zamfara Government to reconstruct its Permanent Orientation Camp, recently destroyed by heavy rainstorm.

The Voice Media Trust (VMT NEWS) reports that the rainstorm destroyed facilities, worth millions of naira in the camp, located at Tsafe Town.

The state NYSC Coordinator, Alhaji Abdulsalam Alhassan, made the appeal in Gusau on Friday during the swearing-in ceremony for the 2023 Batch ‘B’ Stream 1 corps members held at the scheme’s temporary orientation camp in Gusau.

“I am using this medium to appeal to Zamfara Government for urgent intervention and total renovation of the camp’s facilities.

“Our camp located in Tsafe Town in Tsafe Local Government Area was seriously damaged by the recent rainstorm in the area.

“We need urgent government intervention,” Alhassan said.

He said that the rainstorm pulled down the perimeter fence, multi-purpose hall, camp clinic, hostel block and camp pavilion, among others.

Responding on behalf of the State Government, the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Youth and Sports Development, Alhaji Tukur Shehu, promised that the State Government would look into the request.

Shehu, who described Zamfara as home of NYSC, appealed to all the corps members posted  to the state to “always remain law abiding”.

“Let’s consider Zamfara as your second home.

“We expect you to be good ambassadors of your respective states and institutions,” he said.

He said that the state had recorded significant improvement in security and assured the corps members of their safety during the service year.

Shehu also reaffirmed the State Government’s commitment to improved welfare of corps members and the scheme in the state.

VMT NEWS reports that 1,300 corps members of the 2023 Batch ‘B’ Stream 1 set were deployed in the state for the service.

The oath of allegiance was administered on them by the Chief Judge of the state, Justice Kulu Aliyu, represented by Magistrate, Abdullahi Muhammad.
