Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi has reiterated the commitment of his government in ensuring safety of all National Youth Corps members posted to the State, in order for them to serve the people better.
The Governor stated this when he received in audience the national governing board of the National Youths Service Corps (NYSC) led by its chairperson, Ambassador Fatima Ballah, in Ado Ekiti, on Monday.
The NYSC board members were in the state to inspect facilities at the Ekiti State Orientation camp and to seek support for the improvement and expansion of some of its facilities.
Dr Fayemi, promised that his administration would continue to provide support that would strengthen the capacity of the scheme in rendering valuable service to the people.
He noted that the state has benefitted immensely from the human capital investment and other social services that the institution offers the State.
“As chairman of NGF, whatever I can do to address these issues in my own state, would put me in a stronger footing to appeal to my colleagues in other states who may also have similar issues.
“I will not allow people coming to Ekiti to be put in a situation that would not be conducive for them.
“For us this is an institution that is absolutely critical to the future of our country, not just in the past, we will do everything to strengthen the institution in order for it to serve us better.
“We are beneficiary of what the scheme has to offer by way of human capital that it delivers to us in almost free of charge.” He added.
