The Director-General (DG) of the National Youth Service Corps, Johnson Olawumi, has said that orientation camps in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe states will reopen before the end of 2016.
Olawumi added that the reason for the decision is due to he successes recorded in the fight against insurgency in the north eastern part of the country.
Speaking to journalists in Katsina, he said, “Since the insurgency has been reduced drastically, we are resuming orientation in Gombe state beginning with this batch ‘A’ of 2016.
“Adamawa state will resume with the next batch, while Borno and Yobe orientation camps will be re-opened before the end of the year,” he added.
Mr. Olawumi said the states had some of the best facilities for orientation in the country, but had to be closed down due to insecurity.
He advised corps members to discharge their duties at their places of primary assignment diligently.
The DG called on state governments to ensure prompt payment of allowances to corps members to boost their morale for effective service delivery.
