Director-General of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brig:-Gen. Mohammad Fadah, on Tuesday, inaugurated a newly- constructed clinic in Bauchi NYSC permanent orientation camp.
Speaking at the state orientation camp, Wailo, Ganjuwa Local Government Area of the state, the director-general said the move was part of NYSC’s commitment toward the welfare of corps members in the state.
He said the gesture is in tandem with his policy thrust of enhancing the security and general welfare of corps members.
Fadah said the clinic was more conducive for the delivery of quality healthcare for both the corps members and other members of the camp.
“For the clinic construction, we rebuilt an abandoned structure originally designed to serve as an orientation broadcasting service but which was later destroyed by a rainstorm.
“This new construction will accommodate offices for key officials manning the clinic, in addition to the consulting room, pharmacist bay and laboratory,” he said.
The director-general, however, called on the state government to assist in other areas that required intervention to enhance the conduciveness of the camp and its activities.
Fadah was also in the state to witness the official swearing-in of the 1,500 2022 Batch C Stream I corps members posted to the state.
In his address, Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State said the future of the country lay in the hands of the corps members, adding that they had a very important role to play in shaping Nigeria’s corporate destiny.
Represented by his Deputy, Baba Tela, the governor advised the corps members to start thinking right from the orientation camp on how to initiate meaningful community development projects in their respective areas of primary assignment.
Also, the State Coordinator of NYSC, Namadi Abubakar, said a total of 996 out of the 1,500 corps members posted to the state had completed their registration before the swearing-in.
DAILY POST reports that the number consists of 509 males and 487 females, saying that all the corps members will be posted to areas where their services will be most needed, in accordance with the NYSC posting policy.
