Governor Theodore Orji of Abia State has commended the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) for deploying corps members to agriculture, rural infrastructure, rural health and education.

Orji, represented by the Secretary to the State Government, Prof. Agu Mkpa, at the swearing in of 2015 Batch ‘A’ corps members at the NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp, Umunna, Bende Local Government Area of Abia State on Thursday, said the deployment would help in repositioning the scheme to meet the nation’s needs.

The governor promised that Abia State would cooperate with the NYSC towards effective utilisation of corps members posted to the state.

Orji also pledged that measures would be taken to provide for the security and wellbeing of corps members in the service of the state.

“Government is determined to ensure that whatever sacrifice you will make to better our state will never go unrewarded,” Orji said.
